Just over 9 minutes were cribbed from "Portrait in Terror." Jack Hill shot all the new scenes with William Campbell and most of the beatnik footage, while Stephanie Rothman added all the vampire footage. See more »
The television version of this film is called "Track of the Vampire" and restores approximately 11 minutes of footage (mostly outtakes) to the 69-minute theatrical-release version. The added footage includes an extended foot chase early in the film beween the vampire killer and one of his female victims, culminating in her death in the surf. Another addition is an impromptu and lengthy dance by leading lady Lori Saunders (here billed as Linda Saunders), performed on the beach. A third added sequence is a dialogue scene between actors William Campbell, Patrick Magee and an exotic dancer in a seaside nightclub. This sequence was lifted from the Yugoslavian thriller known as "Portrait of Terror" in its English-dubbed version; background footage from this film had already been liberally sprinkled throughout "Blood Bath".

Hilarious trash of a movie from Jack Hill blends elements of witchcraft, vampirism, wax murders, and beatniks(?!). Sid Haig, a Jack Hill regular and guest star in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, plays a beatnik. Weird story is about an artist who lures young girls into his studio, turns into a vampire, and dunks them into hot wax, creating his new figures.
My favorite parts involve interpretive dance and the origin of quantum painting. This film offers the rare opportunity for a vampire to stalk his victim in broad daylight ( probably a film flaw, and abeit a cute one ). Recommended for trash fiends.
