A reader named "Chris AZ" wrote in to solve the mystery of what the one scientist is talking about.

The mystery word is "caponization" - in other words, castration of the turkey.  I think eating that meat would worry me, considering the castration is done with chemicals.  I will be updating the review.

In what I read, Hawkes maintained he really only wanted to make films aimed at kids, entertaining family fare and such. Talk about straying from your goals and ideals to pay the bills.

The stuff I found through Google was from when I was looking up more info on his Tarzan films after the tiger incident. Most of what I found were online fanzine articles and interviews concerning Blood Freak. It seems to be the thing he will be remembered for if he's remembered at all, in the US anyway.

Maybe the article in languages I couldn't read had more Tarzan info. Although his films weren't mentioned in that AMC doc about Tarzan several years ago, which makes me think they were trademark infringements, and that film even mentioned the legal action taken against a French aninmated spoof that had to change some names.

blah blah stuff blah blah obscure pop culture reference blah blah clever turn of phrase blah blah bad pun blah blah bad link blah blah zzzz.....

If Herschell wanted to eat some turkey for Thanksgiving, he'd have been better off eating this "turkey" of a film, before it was released.

I brought Blood Freak to the family thanksgiving celebration this year, hoping to start a new tradition. It didn't go over so well with the kid in college, but those of us who remember the '70s had a great time.

You left out my favorite quote: "We could use a husky man like you at my turkey farm." I need to get that one on my iPod.

This movie is a must see for bad movie fans  Thumbup

I've kept a lot of DVD's because they were so bad (and only bad) that they were actually enjoyable.  Never before have I seen a movie so positively god awful and still somewhat enjoyable.  I do feel bad for Steve Hawkes, but hey, that's show business. 

Did anyone watch any of the short features that were on the special edition DVD like The Walls Have Eyes or the short on nudism?

I don't think anybody TRULY knew how evil drugs were until "South Park" 's Mr. Mackey came along, but

I'm sure if I saw this movie, it would quelch any desire I had left. How many movies (esp. zombie) have

been made where the transformation occurs after doing some "bad" crack, weed, or other illegal

substance? THERE'S A RESEARCH PAPER THERE SOMEWHERE...or maybe I'm high.  hot

Weirdly enough, I was a foreman at the factory where the famous saw scene was filmed (Jansko Furniture, Ft. Lauderdale, FL)

The guy scared the s**t out of several workers by letting his tiger run through the factory.

What I have always been curious about was-in the leg cutting scene...where the guy is holding up his  bleeding looks as if the guy REALLY had no bottom half to his if in actual life he was an amputee.

First off, just wanted to say hi to was my first time on Bad and I liked it so much that I went ahead and registered on the boards.  Glad to see there's some Blood Freak fans out there, since it was shot in my home state of Florida.  Central Florida, I believe.  Like many of you, I also recommend it as required Turkey Day viewing!

If you want to talk about Florida movies, you can't beat "Night of the Blood Beast." It was filmed in the mountains just west of Cape Canaveral (Kennedy Space Center).

Unfortunately they must have leveled the mountains to build Disney World.

Hmmm most birds have their eyes on the sides of their heads this turkeyman has his in front

So this was the only way for moviemakers during the 70s to show the dangers of drugs in society. They couldn't have just made a drama and eliminate all the monster turkey s**t in the movie.

Use illegal drugs eat experimental turkey meat and you end up as a big freakin turkeyman with  ataste for the blood of adicts
