David Durston's I Drink Your Blood
One of the first motion pictures to be rated X for violence, I Drink Your Blood still holds up as one of the most entertaining and wildly demented movies of its kind. Between the bad-taste instincts of exploitation legend Gross and Curston's twisted imagination (rabies, meat pies, LSD, hippie maniacs, construction workers foaming at the mouth!), Blood plays like a double-barreled shotgun blast, a sugar fix for gore freaks. Just when you think Durston can't push the delirium any further, somebody drags a dead goat across the screen...or an old man in long underwear pukes up his dentures while being strangled...or an electric carving knife strays from a side of ham with disastrous results...well, you get the picture.
