Trivia

When BCI Eclipse obtained the rights to release Blood Song on DVD, they could not find any original elements or prints to transfer. This means the original elements and prints either no longer exist or are temporarily lost. BCI was then forced to use a video source to transfer instead. See more »

Venus if you will,please send a little girl for me to kill!
7 February 2004 | by (naples,fl) – See all my reviews

Honestly,I'm shocked no one has posted that headline yet,it's so obvious!I've seen this movie,and it's pretty bad!It should be noted that except for his occasional reunions with Annette,this is Avalon's ONLY acting performance since "Grease" Sad,when you consider he started his acting career with a few A pictures["The Alamo" & "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea"]and then degenerated into the AI Beach films! Not a defense of him or this film,just a witty comment!
