Trivia

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 »

SIMPLY SHOCKING
20 December 2003 | by (Argetnina) – See all my reviews

One of the 30 movies i saw that are a truly horror mastepiece. this movie -at least- in Argentina is very difficult to see or rent. It was film in video and i think when the whole "video" mania was just starting. This is an excellent example of making a great film with very little money. I think it is an example for every filmaker.
