We’re sticklers on tradition around here when it comes to 32 Days of Halloween, so understand when I say that Movie Night #1 is generally a random pick with no real theme. That being said, pointing you to Night of the Blood Beast is still rather calculated. It is the epitome of so much of what we enjoy about films we watch during this mad festival. It’s produced by Roger Corman. It’s directed by Bernard L. Kowalski, who would go on to helm the completely bonkers Attack of the Giant Leeches. And even if you don’t have time to watch the whole thing, do yourself and at least watch through the open credits. Because the music is, again, dead-on what we love about these sort of films. And did I mention the film is bloody terrible? Because it is godawful. Enjoy.
If you still want more, you can trawl through the first night archives, which brought you, in order, The Killer Shrews, She Demons, Carnival of Souls, Don’t Look in the Basement and then finally, last year we kicked off with Daughter of Horror.
