NIGHTMARE IN BLOOD / Xeromega - 1977

Here's a wild one, it was filmed in the bay area including Half Moon Bay, where we used to vacation back in the early sixties. The story's about disappearing attendees at a horror-film convention in San Francisco. It turns out that the guest of honor, Malakai, is a real vampire, and his henchmen are kidnapping the convention guests! A horror writer and an Israeli Nazi-hunter set out to stop him before everbloody's dead.

I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our haunted coffins, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... NIGHTMARE IN BLOOD!

A lot a time is spent in the San Francisco Comic Shop, our heroes' thinkin' spot. Ahh, the good old days, simple pleasures and plenty of that there eye candy!

Our guys end up on a local TV horror show to discuss the bloody murders.

Here's a warning for Eegah!!.. He's our resident golfer, and, many of his balls end up in the rough! I just want to let him know that there are maniacs out there just looking to slice up anybloody who loses their balls in the rough!!

Welp, in SF, if you're planning on hunting Draculas, you'll need this lightning bolt talisman!

Malakai sleeps in his coffin all day, then get's up to go work in his lab with his two little helper goons. There are always plenty of things to do, like...

Injecting this dude in the brain with a special double needled syringe... Fun stuff!

Our heroes use Malakai's own lab amenities against him and his pals, one dude gets a jar full of acid thrown on him! OUCHIE!!

Malakai gets the Star of David stuck to his head and he goes into freak out mode, looks like the little guy did the job!

But, to make sure, they bring in the big sharp stake to finish off the Dracula! Eegah!! takes the reigns on Wednesday, no telling what he will have for us, so, until then...

John Stanley, maker of this film, was the so-called host of Creature Features in San Francisco, following the death of Bob Wilkins.

Stanley was one of those hosts who reminds you every minute how wonderful and talented he is. His pathetic Creature Features Movie Guide, a paperback full of capsule film reviews, with more of his windy oh-so-clever verbiage. The book even covers films it's plain he's never even seen, making the book a collection of cheap shots only worth using as TP in ye olde outhouse.

So it makes sense that this film should be a misbegotten mess as well, and everyone I have met who has seen it agrees. Watching this guy "hosting" Creature Features for free on teevee on Saturdays was bad enough, but to pay to watch a film he created is more than any person should have to bear.

Don't do it. Just don't.
