I don't care what anybody says, this is undoubtedly the worst movie ever.  EVER.  And not in a good way.  I am usually a placid person but i was literally punching the wall in anger every time that stupid little midget came on and did a dance.  For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, there is NO STORY.  AT ALL.  I'm real p**sed off that someone else killed the actors before i did, but maybe theres a member of the audience or something whos still around.......

   We saw this movie the way very few people can claim to have seen it:  sitting next to director Joel Reed!  He pointed out some jokes that no one seems to ever get.
   1.  Ralphus is walking through a dark corridor holding a torch.  Suddenly he puts the torch down and turns on a light!
   2.  Sardu is sitting enjoying a decanter of whisky.  The bottle on the table is Seagrams Pinch.  Get it?  "Pinch"?
   After the movie we treated Joel to dinner and we stayed friends for quite a few years until we left the New York area.  Back in 1990 he announced plans for a sequel but so far nothing has materialised.  Sadly I guess those days are long gone.  Oh well, we still have this movie.
   Has anyone seen Joel's other movies, NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIES starring Jamie Gillis and Alphonse DeNoble (best remembered for ALICE, SWEET ALICE) or ONE ARMED EXECUTIONER?
If you have let us know.  We'd like to know we aren't the only ones who have!

Not much to say except, I have a strong stomache. I love fun gore. I like Cannibal Ferox, Cannibal Holocaust & Emanuelle In America for instance. This is the only film I have ever watched that has left a bad taste in my mouth. I'll let you'all figure out why. I hate censorship, so I encourage you to see this film, I just don't necessarily want to know if you like it. The end.

I watched this movie when I was in high school in the mid-1980s.  I watched it with friends and to this day if you ask one of us if we watched it we will deny it.  My favorite part though, is the phony-ass football helmet the supposed pro quarterback uses.  Try Sears catalog, page 254...$12.99.  This movie scarred me in much the same way "Truth or Dare" did.

And again Ralphus. As written in an interview in a german magazine, Herva (from the TV-series Fantasy Island) was first planned to play his role. But he wanted some extra money for his flight-ticket .Louis de Jesus was already there and so he got the role instead.
In the interview Joel M. Reed also said, that deJesus has done some porn movies after Blood Sucking Freaks , as he was told.
This movie was for a long time not (or hard) to get in europe because it wasnīt released here. But now we even have german version. Iīve seen the movie the first time in a spanish version and didnīt understood a word, but
I donīt remember Night of the Zombies (Schreckensmacht der Zombies)very well, but, has anybody seen Joels first movie "Career Bed"?

Could have something to do with the fact that we saw this one a five in the morning on zero sleep and caffiene induced heart murmurs, but what a steaming load.  Woof.

Who needs a plot when you have a horde of naked cannibal women, a sadistic cymbal-bashing midget, and butt darts? Now that's entertainment!! Viva la Troma for remastering this classic. Oh, and Mr. "the porno years of the 1970's is over", (ARE over! ARE, dagnabbit!) I have three points to make. Point A: Bloodsucking Freaks was released in 1978. Point B: It is my understanding that the adult film industry is doing quite well these days. Point C: In order to avoid looking like a jackass, one should do one's research before spouting off opinions. Thank you, and have a lovely day.

I work with a lot of guys and we all have multiple computers. To keep them straight we name them. My two are Sardu and Ralphus. I just wanted to mention that.

(sigh...) Where to start. I read the review on this movie a few years ago and rented it. I sat watching this movie thinking that it should probably be illegal. Not only does it show shameless simulated murder that I liken only to snuff films of the 80's (maybe this the lost Faces of Death movie renamed), but the guy who played Sardu was utterly terrible. I was truely disturbed after watching this and just stared in disgust as the screen went black. (I still retch when I think about it.)

The only saving grace in this movie, and the only reason that I would reccommend even renting it for a couple hours, is of course Ralphus! There's just something about a little person with a fro in a horror flick dancing around joyfully as someone is slaughtered. It's a mixed emotion kind of thing. On one hand... how disgusting. On the other hand there is an urge to laugh at the whole situation which actually makes me feel a little uneasy.

Watch this flick! It's a clasSICK! Anyone ever think that maybe combining Rocky Horror and Ralphus would be at all entertaining? OH GEEZE! NO! NO! NO! That's just wrong! The visual of Frankenfurter and Ralphus is even more disturbing than this film! Forget I mentioned it PLEASE!

First and foremost. Anyone who wrote a review on this board WITHOUT seeing this classic and judged it badly should be tortured and drilled in the skull. My cousin and I are THEE biggest fans of BloodSucking Freaks (aka The Incredible Torture Show). Big props to the other biggest fans in the world (especially the guy who named his dog Ralphus)! There is a rule to this film that my cousin and I realized.

See it once: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!!
See it twice: It was intriguing enough to find out why we watched it in the first place.
See it three times: Ohhhhhhhh, I get it now. It's a classic.

From then on, when you see this film you pick up new things all the time and spot stuff you didn't in the previous viewi ng. The script is brilliant comedy in the likes of sick Marx Bros. humor. It's a scenario that could really happen, especially in NY. The acting is phenomenal (mainly Seamus O'Brien in an Oscar-worthy performance). I can't say too much for the others, but everyone adds to the film. Lastly, I want to thank the imagination of Joel M. Reed for changing my life drastically and opening my mind to creativity. You don't have to be a genius to be creative. Remember that.

Lastly, what's up with the two black women who along with Ralphus, work for Sardu. They never get any props. Who are they? Thank you for reading this and I hope the close-minded open their minds to this cult classic. Seamus O'Brien R.I.P.

Although I'm not into sado-cannibalistic masochism, this movie was as goofy as it was disgusting. Don't let anyone in your family who might be religious find out that you watched this flick. Nothing in this movie was appropriate.
Parents: don't ever let your kids watch this as it will warp their minds into viewing women and girls as "expendable slaves." Oh, and the only time there was any blood-sucking was when that malpracticing doctor tortured that blonde by removing her teeth w/out anesthetic, shaved her head bald, drilled a hole in her head, and stuck a straw in the hole and suck her blood and brain fluids. Even the nasty Sardu and Ralphus were repulsed by this twisted doctor.

The Guillotine sequence reminds me of my honeymoon.

This movie was total garbage.  I have nothing wrong with tasteless and 'gross' movies, but this unholy abortion was just ridiculous.  Pointless, weak, shameful.

I bought this movie on the advice of my girlfriend.  All I can say is OMFG.  This is some twisted freakin movie.  Every time I watch this movie I realize that there are certain parts that I think I involuntarily have put out of my mind.  See:  The brain sucking scene.  And midgets always make a movie cooler.  Watch this movie just to say you've seen it if you are a true fan of the early gore genre.  I doubt anyone else could sit through it.

The movie had some disgusting scenes in it like the brain sucking and sandwich scenes, but what bothered me most was the scenes involving human humilation that degrades the women in the film and all women in general. The prime example of this involves the woman who is used as a human dart board. In the scene the woman fully nude has a target logo drawn on her bare buttocks and then is forced to bend over a couch while darts are thrown at her bottom by 2 men. The men laugh during the entire sick game while the woman grimaces in pain with each dart that is thrown at her buttocks. The humilation and pain (mental and physical)that this woman must endure while the 2 men laugh away and enjoy her situation is totally sad.
