Storyline

This horror anthology contains four spooky tales of the supernatural told around the dinner table by the actors and the director of a horror movie. The stories involve a mad bomber who gets his macabre comeuppance; a magical coin that transports its owner back in time; a ghost haunting a rich old man's vault; a karate champion whose desire to achieve the "Tenth Level" reveals a secret for which he isn't prepared and finally the framing story ties everything up with a creepy climax.

Worth a look, clever, darkly amusing
1 July 2006 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

Well okay, there isn't really much blood in this movie, so get over it. This is a tame film, especially compared to Director Reeds deservedly notorious, and I think somewhat misunderstood, Bloodsucking Freaks. Blood Bath isn't a shock fest but knowing this and knowing the extremely limited resources they had to make the film it's pretty entertaining and has some good performances from actors who were/are in real movies.

It moves along well,each story features some good humor and good twists,and even all these years later it retains a spark of originality to it. The worst aspect is the low budget or no budget production design and photography, but it's all in focus and pretty much cuts together under Victor Kanefsky's editing--who went on to edit Bloodsucking Freaks for Reed as well. There are also some clever shots here and there when time allowed. There are however a few scenes that play against nothing but blackness--they couldn't even afford a wall. Main genre element I suppose deals with the sort of cruel irony/comedy of getting what you think you want, or thinking you got away with evil deeds and having them come back to trip you up.

Recent DVD release features a longish,not very creative, but still interesting, featurette that itself should have been better photographed but does dig up several of the performers and lets behind the scene people tell it like it was to make the film. This was not a hack work production, it was a quickly that they all did the best they could with and it's entertaining.

Those who hate low budget movies feel free to watch some large slick empty thing instead, but this is diverting stuff for those in the right frame of mind.
