Looking to add a 70s horror flick to your watch-list this Halloween season? I highly recommend Blood Freak, Brad Ginter's no-budget 1972 flick about a "husky" biker who becomes addicted to marijuana (as one does) and turns into a murderous half-man/half-turkey that bears a suspicious resemblance to the San Diego Chicken, who would find fame a few years later. (Too bad they never made a sequel starring Ted Giannoulas!) Bonus points for the Criswell-type narrator who has a genuine coughing fit in the midst of one of his moralistic sermons. "A 20th Century Horror Beyond Belief," indeed!
And if my description doesn't seal the deal for ya, check out the trailer:
Seriously, people — if you've ever wanted to see an Art Howe lookalike get his leg severed by a table saw, THIS is the film for you!
