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

Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, Blood Cult is actually NOT the first shot on video (VHS) horror film. Although many film fans believe that it is because it has been promoted as such since its initial release on the VHS as well as part of the DVD box set of "The Ripper Blood Pack". The first shot on video horror film was actually Boardinghouse (1982). Though it had a brief theatrical release to select theaters. Then there was Sledgehammer, which was also shot on VHS and released in 1983, a full two years before Blood Cult (1985). See more »

Terrifyingly horrible!
2 June 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

What can I say? This was hands-down the worst movie I have ever seen in my life (and believe me, some of my favorite movies are admittedly horrible). The acting was amateurish, the sets were boring, and the camerawork was shoddy and sophomoric. This whole movie seemed like a college final project. I had to keep convincing myself that it was done by a teenager to make it seem somewhat good. The most disturbing factor of the "film" is that it's not even film at all-- it 's shot on video. That was extremely distracting. On top of all that, the dialogue is simply disastrous and the plot line is so basic it makes my eyes water. Not to mention they steal from at least four other horror movies in the first 20 minutes or so. If there were such a thing as zero stars, this movie would get it.

The only thing scary about this movie is how bad it is.
