Audience Reviews for Blood of Ghastly Horror
Has the distinction of being one of the rare films that I just couldn't be bothered to sit all the way through....and I usually enjoy bad films. This one was so badly pieced together and convoluted that it was unwatchable. Half a star for the couple of chuckles like the bad guys knocking people out with a painfully weak karate chop to the neck and peoples eyes going cross as they get strangled,
Absolutely ghastly, not very bloody, but bloody incoherent, "Blood of Ghastly Horror" is a bloody mess of a movie. It's more like two or three different movies haphazardly spliced together into a barely-watchable mess that delivers far more continuity malfunction than horror. Al Adamson was a notoriously bad director; Ed Wood was brilliant in comparison. In this case, he'd originally made a crime flick about a jewel heist that nobody would distribute, so he shot additional scenes and edited them in to make a horror movie about a man with an artificial brain. When that didn't work, he shot some more scenes and edited them in to make a movie about a jewel heist carried out by a psychotic veteran with an artificial brain and the veteran's father who seeks revenge for his son's death by turning two people into zombies. The result is bloody ghastly, choppy, inchoate gibberish created over a period of nearly eight years involving two mad scientists and no talent at all. The acting is awful and clothing styles and cars change over the course of the flick. There's a scene early on wherein jewel thieves are on the roof of a building fighting with the police, then they run back inside... and go up several more flights of stairs, only to appear in a van in the next scene. Wow. It just goes on like that. John Carradine is the first mad scientist (David Carradine does *not* appear) who had tried to save the life of Roy Corey, who took shrapnel in the head in Vietnam. He does something involving a brain implant and electricity, which leaves Corey psychotic, and Corey kills Dr. Vanard while also pulling of robberies. Then Vanard's daughter shows up, and Corey's father kidnaps her to turn her into a zombie to accompany Akro, the zombie he already has. Akro isn't panning out for some reason, though. So... ummm... yeah... the police pursuit and death of the young Corey is shown in flashback in some parts of the film, even though it's clearly not a flashback at the beginning... and... errrr... a guy's kid has somehow gotten the jewels that landed by coincidence in the back of his truck and there's a shootout in the mountains... and then... something... flashback... things... ummmm... closing credits. MST3K fodder, sure. If you're going to watch this one (no reason to do so, but who knows...), make sure to drink heavily. Maybe it makes more sense if you don't remember it the next day!
