Never before released in the UK, Bloodsucking Freaks has earned a world-wide reputation as being a film unlike anything ever seen before in the history of the cinema. Bloodsucking Freaks takes you to a bizarre Off-Broadway theatre of the macabre, operated by a deranged impresario. Inside, sadistic entertainments are staged for his audience's pleasure, including tortures, dismemberments, and other gruesome acts which appear to be faked. When people begin disappearing off the streets of Manhattan, the twisted truth begins to chillingly sink in: these horrifying bloodcurdling acts are not theatrical at all. They are real! No one can remain unmoved by the intense scenes of carnage, from the human dartboard to the infamous brain sucking scene. Bloodsucking Freaks is guaranteed to turn stomachs!

Black case.

Review

The first Blu-ray out of the gate (by a few mere months) came from 88 Films in the U.K., and it's a major improvement all around with more detail, film grain, color, and pretty much everything else you can name. There's some unavoidable grittiness and debris here and there, but fans should be more than satisfied to see this looking far better than it has in a theater for decades. The significant extras from the DVD and the preexisting Tromatic stuff (Troma tour, Radiation March, Troma service announcements, etc.) have been ported over apart from the gallery. Miraculously, the film is presented uncensored as well... - 4/5
