Alternate Versions

The British X certificate cinema release "Blood Devils" was taken from the same cut version used for the American TV version. This same version later resurfaced on video, however there was a second British video release that was uncut. It went by the title "Beast of the Dead", it contains some topless footage that wouldn't have got past U.S. TV, but would have been passed by the British censor. However lots of violence obviously hadn't much chance of making it past the censor, especially a gruesome scene where a doctor removes a man's head. See more »

Why, doctor, you're turning my head.
23 July 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

The sequel to Mad Doctor of Blood Island, the last in the Blood Island Trilogy, a Philippine film that features sex and violence just for the heck of it.

Plot? You need a stinking plot? OK, Dr. Foster (John Ashley) is back on Blood Island in search of the green monster. Dr Lorca (Eddie Garcia) is trying to replace the monster's head. That's it. The rest is lots of fighting and bloody bodies, and sex with a reporter (Celeste Yarnall) and native (Liza Belmonte).

It was extremely difficult just to stay focused on this. Please, no Blood Island IV!
