Classic American drive-in flick I Drink Your Blood launches theatrical tour this Friday
David E.Durston’s post-Manson hippie horror classic I Drink Your Blood is one of the signature grindhouse and drive-in films of the 1970s. Released in late 1970, not long after the gruesome Tate/LaBianca murders in California, the film (which stars a young Lynn Lowry) sees a small town boy, fed up with the endless assaults on his friends and family by a vile band of drug-drenched cultists, injecting the troublemakers’ meat pies with a nasty strain of rabies.
What seemed like a good idea at the time instead launches a wave of zombie-plague like carnage in the rural community, with the hippies turning into foaming, homicidal psychopaths!
Now, Grindhouse Releasing is bringing I Drink Your Blood back to theaters for a limited 35th anniversary release.
I Drink Your Blood (which was released as part of an infamous double bill with the unrelated 1964 clunker I Eat Your Skin) opens this Friday, September 2, at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York City and continues at cinemas across the country through the Halloween season.
Here’s the full schedule:
9/2 –4 – Landmark Sunshine, New York, NY
