There are several references to avant-grade singer/performance artist Diamanda Galas throughout the film: * The character Vena Cava shares a name with an album Galas released in 1993. * Vena's line of "Give me sodomy or give me death" is taken from the song "Confessional" off of Galas' 1991 album "Plague Mass" and is used in a very similar context. * When Morphine disguises herself as Mallory, the soundtrack plays excerpts from Galas' 1982 recording of "The Litanies of Satan."

Is Olivia Bonamy the most beautiful woman in the world?
Probably not. But while I was watching this movie, I was thinking that she may be just that. She has an incredibly beautiful face (she reminded me a bit of Kristy Swanson, the original "Buffy" - coincidence?), a magnificent, toned, fit body, lovely red hair, a hip hairstyle, an irreverent attitude, and she handles her fight scenes competently. She's far and away the best reason to see "Bloody Mallory" - the rest is sometimes fun but mostly silly stuff. The mythology presented in this movie is actually quite interesting, but the script seems to be inventing and changing its rules as it goes along, and it often gets overly silly (ghouls that get into karate fights, talking bats, etc.). The film also suffers from an overuse of CGI, and the monster effects are rather cheesy. It all ends with the setup for a sequel, but so far one has not materialized and chances are it never will.
