Movie Info

Shot on a miniscule $50,000 budget, and including footage from a 1959 Russian film that was later purchased by Roger Corman, this science fiction feature finds a tiny planet slowly dying. With the inhabitants in danger of perishing, some kind-hearted astronauts bring a green-blooded female alien back to Earth. The extraterrestrial shows her gratitude by going wild for human blood in the fashion of a blood-sucking vampire. John Saxon, Basil Rathbone and Dennis Hopper are some of the actors sentenced by their vindictive agents to appear in this 1966 film.more

This dry endeavor picks up steam during its final half-hour, but by then, most viewers will have checked out.

... arguably the best of the Corman-produced recycling jobs and as fun a haunted spaceship film as there was until Mario Bava's Planet of the Vampires.

Parallax View

Chalk this one up to a campy title that's worth getting for the Hopper factor and the laughs--all unintentional.

Even though it drags its feet through most of the voyage, it still manages to deliver some chills come climax time.

Audience Reviews for Queen of Blood

Goes directly to my "So Bad It's Good" list. Like something Ed Wood might have done, had he actually had a budget (and better stock footage).

The story is predictable, the acting is as would be expected (fun seeing young Dennis Hopper & John Saxon).

While there is actually some fun/kitchy set & costume designs here...it seems all of their time and energy was spent on trying to make things seem "futuristic" (it is meant to take place in 1990 after all!) and not enough of story of plot development.

Still, it's kinda fun, though ultimately anti-climactic.

"We're going to get back to Earth, all right, and we're going to take our monster visitor with us."-Allen Brenner (John Saxon)

The year is 1990, Dennis Hopper is clean cut, green alien chick drinks the blood of male astronauts. She eventually dies, after laying what apear to be baby cabbages smothered in green jello sauce.

"Eggs?"-Allen Brenner

Queen of Blood is a highly entertaining piece of B-movie sci-fi horror from the 1960s that is perhaps most memorable for featuring a very young John Saxon (Enter the Dragon, Nightmare on Elm Street) and Dennis Hopper. Completely cheesy with terrible special effects, Queen of Blood still manages to be a decently creepy piece of B-movie sci-fi horror that may or may not be a rip off of Mario Bava's Planet of the Vampires.

Queen of Blood Quotes

Paul Grant: Not a bad film for a budget of $50,000. It's worth watching.
