Filmed in Dallas. Absolutely…bizarre. Because it’s hard to tell whether the filmmakers were trying to make something scary…or something just…awful. Then at times the comedy comes through, and at other times…are they trying to be scary again? Yes? No? I’m not really sure….At any rate, I feel like everyone who likes a good bad horror movie needs to watch ‘Bloodsuckers from Outer Space’ at least once in their lives.

 

Don’t get me wrong, when I say this is awful. I don’t hate this movie at all. Because this was the first zombie film I ever watched. There is such an intense fondness in my heart for Bloodsuckers from Outer Space for that reason alone, that I can’t honestly say ‘don’t watch this. It’s terrible.’ My mom had this film on her shelf for years, and every time I’d look at the green and black VHS cover, I’d get chills up and down my spine remembering how awful it was watching a farmer vomit blood at the opening until he morphed into some sort of weird…blue…scarred…zombie thing. I didn’t notice the tube at the side of his mouth when I was 5.

Basically, this is like Diet Troma. A far more watchable movie than anything actually from Troma (Toxic Avenger aside, because I freaking love that one). And for the most part…family friendly. Kind of.

At any rate, Bloodsuckers tries to be a brilliant horror satire, and it fails. Killer Klowns ended up being much for successful in that regard. But…it’s still charming. And it’s a movie everyone needs to see once in their life, especially if they’re from Texas.

Working on a podcast episode, will probably have it up within the next week. In the mean time, here’s some pictures with myself (the tall one in blue) and my best friend, Audra, who will also be a future co-host on the podcast as well. Enjoy! Yes, that is Robert Englund’s autograph on my torso tattoo.
