Gary P. Cohen got the idea for this film while working as a video store clerk. One day a woman came into the store with her toddler and asked if the film I Dismember Mama (1972) was rated R for nudity. Cohen told her that he wasn't sure if the movie contained nudity, but that it was probably rated R for graphic violence. The woman decided to rent the movie, saying that as long as there was no nudity it would be appropriate for her children to watch. This interaction appears in the film, although the woman has an infant instead of a toddler and is asking about the appropriateness of Blood Cult (1985). See more »
Yes, this movie is _very_ low budget, and probably was filmed with a regular video camera, the movie was great. Very bloody and senseless killing was the plot, but the characters with no personality made you laugh when you saw them act. Seems like someone wanted to make a movie and used their friends and relatives.
I was the manager of a video store at the time when a traveling distributor asked to me buy this movie. He described the plot and since I have had so many different tapes accidentally switched when they dropped them off, I thought it would be a great reality check. I bought it for the store, it rented maybe 10 times, and then I pulled it and kept it for myself. Truly a cult classic. Could it happen in your store?? Keep an eye on that nightdrop!!
