    12.29.33 - 4.14.20 Killed by WuFlu. I still remember being blown away by Bloodsucking Freaks, it was another one of those great VHS finds I had as a kid that lived up to the hype and kept me scouring for new trash to check out. I'll definitely have to give it another spin sometime soon.

    B Freaks is so fun. A shame.

    While he only made a few films, Bloodsucking Freaks is something you can't forget. I also first caught this on VHS and was young enough at the time that it's outrageous nudity and violence really left an impression. Recently I purchased his book but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. RIP.

    It was likely filmed before Reed's passing, but Joe Bob Briggs' newsletter revealed that movie #2 of The Last Drive-In season premiere on Friday will be Bloodsucking Freaks co-hosted by wrestler (and BF fan) Chris Jericho.

    RIP - I'm a big fan of Bloodsucking Freaks myself. Such a fun, tactless movie - nothing quite like it, though The Gore Gore Girls has a little bit of the same black humour.
