New School Gore: 80's Style, 18 May 2011
Author: Tromafreak from Tallahassee, Florida

Exactly what I needed. I can't even remember the last time I saw a laugh-out-loud high-larious Troma movie. Not just any Troma movie. But a genuine low-budget 80's slasher. Or at least it thinks it is. Hell. It had me fooled. The clothes, the sweet tunes, the way everyone talked and carried themselves. Even down to the way the screen looked That's right! grainy film-quality and all. rarely have I seen modern Exploitation that captures that awkward, 80's vibe so perfectly. To be perfectly honest, Blood Junkie is more 80's than some authentic 80's flicks I've seen. Now, that's 80's, friend.

I could have come up with a more complex story when I was in the first grade. Just sayin'. But anyway. Who cares? The year is 1989, and these rad dudes are gonna get laid. Hanging out in front of the 7-11 usually makes this happen. Right on cue! Two teenage chicks, with plenty of booze money just pulled up. Time for some sweet talk, guy! If all else fails, inviting them to go camping would probably be the wisest move. Too bad the homely one has to bring little brother. That's OK. We'll make it work. As long as there's no killers around killing drunken, sexually active teenagers, there shouldn't be a problem. Alright then. Let the drunken 80's hijinks begin!

Considering everything I've said about this movie, you'd think it would have ended up being an absolute gorefest, and unfortunately, that just isn't the case. Personally, I've seen it all when it comes to gore. So, anything else Blood Junkie could have offered wouldn't have been anything new. So, we'll just say this one is all about the laughs. I mean, come on. The 80's are funny, and there's no way around that. With all the oldschool/retro Grindhouse "throwbacks" out there which fail (Death Proof) miserably, a winner like Blood Junkie is like a breath of fresh air. And I sincerely hope more flicks like this get made sooner than later. If dig on stuff like Redneck Zombies, or Decampitated, and If you haven't seen a good non-Kaufman Troma movie in a while, Blood Junkie is here! 8/10
