Example text

BLOOD FREAK (1972) Remember what happened to Al Hedison in the original The Fly? Something similar befalls poor Hershell (Steve Hawkes), an Elvisian biker … but with a turkey. He’s the hero of this drive-in wonder made in Florida. He’s also involved with two sisters, devout Christian Angel who gives impromptu Bible lessons to her depraved dope-toking sister Anne and anyone else who’ll listen. Topping it all off is a seedy, chain-smoking, wheezing on-camera narrator who interrupts the action at regular intervals to read a script that might have been written by Ed Wood Jr.

The son’s manipulative girlfriend (Lydie Denier) looks like the dead woman, and his dying grandfather (Ray Walston) may be the kinkiest of them all. The games they play with and against each other in a snow-covered mansion become creepier and creepier until they reach a wonderfully nasty Grand Guignol conclusion. One of the better sleepers. BLOOD SALVAGE (1990) Horror/comedy about organ transplants is cut from the same cloth as the cult classic Motel Hell. Jake (Danny Nelson) uses his tow-truck business as a front for an organ bank.

A strong and slightly unusual setting—the deep South in winter—and a cast filled with seasoned character actors help considerably. The plot doesn’t make as much sense as it might, but that’s not a huge flaw. Careful viewers will catch a big continuity mistake in one kitchen scene before the grossout stuff kicks in. BEETLEJUICE (1988) Perhaps Tim Burton’s most imaginative combination of horror and comedy is also one of his most enjoyable. Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis are the recently deceased young couple who can’t leave their beloved rural home and want to get rid of the shallow new inhabitants (Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O’Hara, and Winona Ryder).
