Storyline

A mysterious serial killer is killing several female co-eds on and off a college campus in Oklahoma and the only clues are gold medallions left by the bodies. A grizzled police detective sets out to find the killer, but is unaware that all the killings are connected to a Satanic cult. The detective, Ron, turns from the hunter to the hunted when he sees that no one around him can be trusted, not even his own daughter. Written by matt-282

Blood Cult (1985)

* (out of 4)

This film is best remembered for being the first film produced in order to go straight to VHS, which we all know became a very profitable venue for producers. In the film, sorority girls are being chopped up all over a small town so the sheriff must try and figure out what's going on. After some research he finally realizes that a Satanic cult is behind the murders. Outside the historic claims to the film there's really not too much here, although I must say that the movie, while pretty bad, never got too boring. The low budget (apparently 27-thousand) adds a certain charm to the film but the screenplay is still rather weak and we get some incredibly bad performances that don't help matters. There are several childish death scenes with all sorts of blood and guts but even the special effects aren't that special. After reading a few interviews with the director and producer it's clear that they were interested in making money and I think that's easy to see here. This really comes off as the type of film where people are wanting to make cash and there's no real effort to make anything really good. I will admit that the movie is certainly a lot better than a lot of direct to VHS titles but that's still not saying much.
