Movie Info

Set during the Victorian era, the film stars Peter Cushing as a Holmeslike detective on the trail of a serial killer. The mystery angle is minimal, since we know virtually from the beginning that the killer is a gigantic....moth! It seems that Wanda Ventham, daughter of addled scientist Robert Flemyng, has spent too much time in her dad's lab, and can turn herself into a malevolent moth at will. Flemyng tries to mollify Ventham by creating a playmate for her-and the result is two murderous moths. Blood Beast Terror was also released as The Vampire-Beast Craves Blood.

Audience Reviews for Blood Beast Terror

A truly silly pulp British horror film that features Peter Cushing as a detective trying to track down a bizarre killer than ends up being a gigantic moth that masquerades as a hot young woman in order to seduce men into her clutches. A fun but pointless and idiotic horror film.
