Blood Song is just strange. A killer with a flute takes down anyone non-music lover (or anyone who gets in his way really) and the events are dreamt by a young girl who happened to have gotten a transfusion of his blood when she was in a car accident.

The acting is pretty decent and the characters are good (except for her father).

A lesser-known golden-age slasher film, Blood Song is as stupid as its premise: a young girl receives a blood transfusion from a psycho killer and begins to have visions of his killings. But it is a pretty fun and funny ride through early 80s slasher tropes that will most likely entertain fans of the genre that have seen everything else.

Strange movie. I had a hard time sitting through it and got bored. Some interesting ideas, but the first half drags and is complimented by cheap special effects and a lovely synthesizer soundtrack. Basic slasher stuff and it's nothing you haven't seen before otherwise.

Blood Song has alot of flaws and chessiness but thats the greatness and what makes this film an instant classic.

A very typical slasher movie about a maniac persuing a girl that he once had a blood transfusion with, which gave them a mental link. At least, it would be typical except for one thing: The slasher is played by former teen heartthrob Frankie Avalon! Still, it should have come out better than this.

Blood Song is the story of slightly unattractive, handicapped lead Donna Wilkes (who would later look hot as shit in the 80's movie Angel) whose leg accident resulted in a blood transfusion with a mental patient who witnessed his family kill his cheating wife, the home wrecker, and then himself when he was a child (the child's reaction to this in the film is SERIOUSLY one of the unintentionally funniest scenes ever. I spit my drink out everywhere and just about lost my shit). It is then that Wilkes begins seeing everything the now grown up, killer mental patient (Frankie Avalon in an against-type role) through visions, which involve him escaping the looney bin and hacking his way to her home town, where he starts chasing her around with psychotic glee. Blood Song builds itself upon hilariously bad acting and plot holes. The death and gore are fine and Avalon is fun to watch play a demented villain. Also, the ending is fantastically over-the-top in its grimness. Overall, a somewhat amusing 80's slasher film.
