Walter Paisley, a busboy at a cappuccino bar called the Jabberjaw, is praised as a genius after he kills his landlady's cat and covers it in plaster. Pressured to produce more work, he goes after bigger subjects.
Anthony Michael Hall,
Walter Paisley, nerdy busboy at a Bohemian café, is jealous of the talent (and popularity) of its various artistic regulars. But after accidentally killing his landlady's cat and covering the body in plaster to hide the evidence, he is acclaimed as a brilliant sculptor - but his new-found friends want to see more of his work. Lacking any artistic talent whatsoever, Walter has to resort to similar methods to produce new work, and soon people start mysteriously disappearing...Written by

Reportedly Dick Miller was unhappy with the impact of the low budget on the film. He felt the film had terrific potential to be a classic and liked the script and performances, but felt the lack of funding weakened some of the film's best moments. In particular he cited the conclusion of the film, saying that it suffered due to little time and money for makeup effects. See more »
Walter accidentally kills a cat in a wall with a knife, but when he takes it out of the wall, it is stiff, as if it has been dead at least an hour. See more »
I saw a statue once. It was called, "the third time Phyllis saw me, she exploded."
Man, what kind of statue was that?
I dunno, it was made out of driftwood and dipped in fluoric acid. Very wild.

"A Bucket of Blood", for all it's cheapness, contains some great dialogue. I suspect that John Waters paid close attention to the snappy repartee delivered by the entire cast of this little gem. How can you not love a movie that has lines like: "Take me to some cool blue place...and gas me!". A total hoot, all the way around.
