Blood Diner 1987, part of the collectors Series from Vestron Video. Distribution by Lionsgate. Directed by Jackie Kong. Rated R, running time approx 84 minutes.
Number 2 in the Vestron Video series releases from Lionsgate, following on from Chopping Mall, finally I watched today, and I'm ashamed being a horror fan that it passed me by.
Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, currently sadly only available in the USA and region code locked, luckily I have a multi region player, it is currently selling on US Amazon for $25,00 but you may find it cheaper.
A film about two deranged brothers who own a health food diner as a front, because their passion is murdering young ladies, then serving customers a healthy Dish where the secret recipe is female flesh, they mix into their vegetarian dishes, whilst secretly keeping the body parts to resurrect a long dead blood thirsty Sumerian female God.
A film that is plain stupid but brilliant, looking completely dated, with some great effects for a film with such a low budget. With a picture quality that is actually decent for its age, with some grain noticeable on some of the darker scenes, but still a decent transfer, loaded with special features, that I really enjoyed, glad I watched it on a Hi def platform, and glad I've seen it finally as it really is great unashamedly fun, if your a fan of Troma you'll love this movie, I did.
Region A locked unfortunately.
