Your search is over! If you've been looking for a flick with scene after scene of naked babes being torured to death for an evildude and a smarmy dwarf's amusement, BLOOD SUCKING FREEKS is for you. What plot there is, is as thin as granny's underpants. There's no time wasted on character development. BLOOD SUCKING FREEKS is simply one long train of sadistic amusments.
BSF opens in what is suposed to be a theater of tortures. (Presumably these kinds of things exist in Europe. Probably France.) A naked blonde is strapped to a chair having her finger crushed with a C-clamp. The audience of six or so people,(extras must be hard to find in Europe) are not satisfied with the performance. One of the patrons is a theater critic who apparently gives the show a poor review.
The evildude who runs the theater mulls over his revenge. Torturing women sooths his nerves and helps him think. He summons his dwarf buddy to fetch up an unfortunate from the basement dungeon, to serve as evildude's dinner table; nude of course. Displeased with her efforts, evildude sends the hapless lass to the electro-table for a bit of sustained electroshock fun. To finish off the evening, evildude and dwarf paint a target on her ass, bend her over a chair, and play a chummy game of darts over beer and pretzels.
A dentist from hell is introduced with another nude blonde tied to a chair. First he performs some purely elective novacane-less tooth extractions. Then with a power drill, bores a 3/8" hole in missy's skull, inserts a soda straw, and sucks out her brain. We never see this dentist dude again, although I'm sure this performance, in all likelyhood, inspired the film's title.
Evildude somehow lures the theater critic back to Evildude's lair where he's captured and imprisoned in the dungeon. He also kidnaps a ballerina who happens to dance by. She spurns evildude's advances and so, suffers the inevitable consequences. Many tortures follow.
Finaly at the end, predictably, evildude and smarmy dwarf get theirs in fittingly ironic ways.
The production values of this low-budget splatter fest are less than stellar. But with a bit of imagination on the viewer's part allied with burning some good bud in a bowl, BSF's special effects become somewhat convincing.
Whenever films of this genera are unearthed, you know, films like; "I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE", "3000 MANIACS", MOTHER'S DAY", or any of the "ELSA" series of films, to name a few, "BLOOD SUCKING FREEKS" is never mentioned. I can only wonder why. BSF is the bell-weather of this genera. There's more blood, screams, sadism, and all around woman hating good times in this misogynist film than in any I'm aware of outside the realms of hard-core rape, bondage, torture porn.
For lovers of the sadistic and the macabre, look no further. This is it.
(Rated R for nudity, violence, and simulated sex with a decapitated head.)
