review by
Mike Haberfelner

  • Gory Story: Brewster (Roger LeBlanc) is literally possessed by the hook he has for a hand ever since he has cut off his actual hand to - well, he wanted to teach his ex-girlfriend (Savannah Nightingale) a lesson, it just didn't work out all that great. And now his hook orders Brewster to kill - but unfortunately, Brewster's not entirely unclumsy, so at times he ends up on the wrong side of inflicting pain ...
  • Attack of Conscience: Julie just can't die ... even if her fiancé (Donovan Cerminara) isn't missing a single opportunity to try and kill her.
  • The Night Hag: Sam (Caroline Buzanko) has never grown quite uneasy about the house she and her family moved into ... and she's quite right to feel a bit worried, as there's something living in the walls - and that something (Sarah-Joy Goode) loves to eat humans ...
  • GOREgeous: Gordo (Stuart Bentley) is the manager of an all-girl rockband - but frankly, he's not very good at it, which is why he is fired eventually. Thing is, everytime Gordo cuts himself, he gets into a blood frenzy and is destined to kill. And the girl from the band are on top of his list right now ...

Now admittedly, BloodMania is probably not Herschell Gordon Lewis' greatest film, basically because the uniqueness of his gore flicks is only very hard to reproduce nowadays. But that said, this little anthology is at the same time a perfect farewell movie for the man who has become known as the "Godfather of Gore", as it doesn't just focus on the gore content of his filmmaking ways but also on the comic aspects, the over-the-top ideas, and the occasional nonsense moments. And while gore movies as such might be a dime a dozen these days, only few are as much fun to watch (in a party movie sort of way) as this one.
