  • Degausser Video Releasing Blood Cult

    It's up for pre-order now.

    On a small Midwestern college campus, female coeds are being hacked to pieces in a rash of gruesome slayings dubbed the “sorority house murders”. In each case, a body part is removed from the victim and a golden amulet bearing a dog’s head left on the corpse, leading Sheriff Wilbois to suspect the involvement of a canine god-worshiping “blood cult”. Determined to put an end to the carnage, the sheriff, with the aid of his daughter and her boyfriend Joel, sets about attempting to stop the blood cult before it succeeds in its grisly aims.

    Marketed as the first movie made specifically for the home video market, 1985’s BLOOD CULT marked the first collaboration between husband and wife directing/producing duo Christopher and Linda Lewis and Tulsa-based executive producer Bill F. Blair, who together would go on to produce the Tom Savini-starring The Ripper as well as Revenge, the 1986 sequel to BLOOD CULT. Featuring copious scenes of gratuitous machete mutilation, Degausser Video is delighted to present this classic of the shot-on-video era - which famously publicized itself as having been “banned from two Midwestern campuses” - restored from its original master tape alongside a host of new and archival extras.

    directed by: Christopher Lewis
    starring: Juli Andelman, Charles Ellis, James Vance, Bennie Lee McGowan, Peter Hart, David Stice
