“ And the audience is then treated to Bible reading and confusing theological lessons from this lady to the biker--in the midst of a party where everyone else is doing inhalants and pot!
“ All throughout the film, a sleazy narrator interrupts things to give the audience confusing philosophical insights about God.
“ This comes off like a metaphor for the dangers of chemical abuse with its philosophical narration, which was popular in movies during the 60's and early 70's anti-drug media propaganda market.
“ The turkey-head concept is totally off the wall and is hilariously enjoyable, and there's a few decent splattery moments as well, including a real turkey-beheading at the end.
“ Because of Blood Freak, I have discovered many other movies that may seem unwatchable, but are actually a lot more fun than the slick, predictable formula that makes it to the theater.
“ I will say that the pacing is a bit slow, especially in the beginning - and the fact that there were two hot female leads in this that never showed any skin is downright criminal.
“ Accompanying his new acquaintance back to her apartment, Hershell meets Angel's stunning sister Ann (Dana Cullivan), a sexually liberated, habitual drug user who hangs out with a crowd of far-out hippies.
“ After BloodFreak Grinter made a couple of nudist propaganda films (Barely Proper 1975, Never the Twain 1974) before they and him disappeared off the face of the planet.
“ This is a pretty graphic and intense sequence.
“ It's consistently bad, that's for sure, but since you get the idea that everyone sucks at acting and the bland lines won't stop coming, I just wasn't smiling as much as I hoped.
“ The true story behind the film a bleak tale of a horrific burns accident, a Tarzan impersonator, an aging nudist enthusiast and much bad blood is equally fascinating.
“ WORST movie ever made?
“ It's nudity is softcore to none, it's gore is confusing and contrived, and it's outcome is propaganda, preaching against everything this film fails to accurately misrepresent.
“ But besides those boring themes you also have a guy with a Turkey head running around killing and drinking people's blood.
“ On the other hand this is a one-of-a-kind insane combination of drug propaganda, slasher films, monster movies and Christian evangelism that has never been repeated to this day.
“A true curio, and worth watching for adventurous people.
“ forgetting some holes in the script and often directed superficial and careless the film in my opinion and ' enjoyable ...
“In addition to all this, viewers are also treated to sporadic appearances from Grinter as the film's narrator, who spouts dull philosophical and theological clap-trap and whose chain-smoking leads to a coughing fit whilst he is delivering a diatribe about poisoning the body with unnatural substances (some have taken this to be a wry clue that director Brad Grinter was well aware of how daft his film was all along; if so, then I guess the guy must have been some kind of genius to have successfully pulled the wool over the eyes of bad-film fans for nigh on 40 years).
“ While others find it incredibly entertaining, I found it pathetic and just plain tedious.
“ The rest of the film is a confusing mess.
“ Practically everything he says during each interruption is pointless and his delivery is so bad, he's the funniest thing about the film.
“ Was it entertaining?
“ After hearing about Blood Freak for years, after preparing myself by collecting over two hundred of the worst movies ever made, after nearly resigning myself to paying a fortune for a copy, I found Blood Freak sitting on a shelf with a cute little green price tag, biding its time, waiting to pounce.
“Blood Freak is an amazingly bad film, it's awful in every regard yet it's just so funny, so short & so bad that I thought it was quite entertaining although please, please don't take that as any sort of strong recommendation as this really is awful from start to finish & anyone with any true cinematic taste will not believe their eyes.
“ The whole film is quite lifeless & dull, it plods along & even at 80 minutes it drags, it takes what seems like ages for the Turkey monster to show & there's a really bad cop-out ending that just reinforces that drugs are bad, very bad.
“ I'm giving this movie an 8 out of ten because I find it very entertaining.
“ And by the time the filmmakers get to the turkey headed creature-man-thing, looking like a cross between a discarded Skesis from the Dark Crystal and a Docor Who villain, one can join in the fun with the repetitive screaming sound effect and awkward edits.
“ As such, it must surely stand as one of the most entertaining turkeys of all time (a most-fitting description, as you will discover).
