Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights!
“Rabid, Drug-Infested Hippies on a Blood-Crazed Killing Rampage!” So declares the poster for I Drink Your Blood, a deliriously mad relic of the hippie drippy LSD era, and our show this Friday night. The film is a thematic tie-in with The Cinefamily’s month-long tribute to cults (in support of the new documentary, The Source Family), and for a film aimed at the young folk, I Drink takes a pretty dark and unflattering view of the free-love vagabond lifestyle — featuring a cult of sociopathic satanist hippies who like to torment both strangers and their own members. They also like to barbeque rats.
Friday May 24th @ midnight.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
“What do you get when you throw LSD-dropping devil worshippers, shotgun-packing children and old men, rabid dogs, zombies, and heaping piles of severed limbs into a blender?” — Steve Habrat, Anti-Film School
The only thing scarier than a dirty hippie in the early Seventies was a dirty-hippie death cult — a fear that the outré, impossibly daffy I Drink Your Blood exploits to maximum Manson-hysteria effect. The cultural remnants of the Manson Family’s “Helter Skelter” murders casts a long shadow over this freak-fest, but director David E. Durston pushes things further than even Charlie & Co. could conceive, with a plot involving meat pies, rabies and copious amounts of drugs. Like a brown acid trip in a blood-soaked charnel house, this is a trash landmark well worth of its status as a drive-in/Times Square legend. Starring super-siren Lynn Lowry (Shivers, Score, The Crazies) and a gloriously unhinged performance from wild-eyed Indian actor/dancer Bhaskar Roy Chowdhury as cult leader “Horace Bones”, this is one grody trip you don’t want to miss.

I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles.
