Independent Films, Film Profiles
I Drink Your Blood is a cult horror film originally released in 1970. The film was written and directed by David E. Durston, produced by Jerry Gross, and starred Bhaskar Roy Chowdhury and Lynn Lowry (who is uncredited in the film).Like many B-movies of its time, I Drink Your Blood was a Times Square exploitation film and drive-in theater staple.Loosely inspired by Charles Manson's "family", the film centers around a group of nomadic Satanist hippies who ride into a small town and terrorize the inhabitants. A young girl is badly beaten, and after an old man confronts the group, he is dosed with LSD. A boy then decides to exact revenge and put a stop to the rampage. The boy (who works at a local bakery) feeds the hippies special meat pies laced with blood from a rabid dog. Rabid, hydrophobic and frothing at the mouth, the hippies go berserk and wreak homicidal havoc upon the unwitting town.
