Wow! I never would have expected that I'd get anywhere close to 100 likes on this…
Two cannibalistic brothers kill various young women to make their flesh part of their new special dish at their rundown restaurant while seeking blood sacrifices to awaken a dormant Egyptian goddess.
There's a real cassanova in this movie that tells a girl he's having sex with that he's "so horny he could fuck a cow." A real smooth operator.
Blood Diner was recommended to me by a friend/coworker, who completely sold it to me by describing it as a “Blood Feast homage directed by a woman”. Of course, lady-directed movies are always particularly attractive to me; even more so when it’s a horror, which seems to be a particularly male-dominated field. Also, I watched Herschell Gordon Lewis’ classic Blood Feast last year for the very first time and enjoyed it quite a bit. Seeing a slightly more modern take on it sounded like an awesome idea, which persuaded me to check this out. Altogether, I’d say I liked it about as much as…
I hate myself for not watching this sooner when I've actually had multiple chances. If I'd seen this in middle school I probably would have watched it once a week every week of my life ever since. The insanity at the end of this movie is a legitimately amazing payoff and this movie deserves a better dvd release than just being tossed onto a random six-pack and put on shelves.
Nothing can prepare you for Blood Diner, not even seeing it - my mom rented this for me when I was probably ten years old. I was recovering from some minor surgery, saw a window of opportunity in her sympathetic nature, and decided to go for broke at the video store: Blood Diner! We popped some of that shitty microwave popcorn (and it burned the way it always used to burn in those old microwaves that didn't have properly calibrated popcorn settings) and sat down prepared to be horrified. Blood Diner delivered, in the extreme - my mom shut it off after about twenty minutes, and while I protested with the volume and passion I felt was expected of me,…
So this is pretty much a MAD Magazine approach to horror, with more gags and gross-outs per second than most movies have throughout their entire running time. It reminded me a little bit of Tsui Hark's We're Going To Eat You, although Blood Diner is a much more sustained exercise in bad taste than that movie ever hoped to be.
Not much of horror film, but it is weird weird. The voice pitches of the actors might be the weirdest thing in the movie - and that's saying something as this film also features a Hitler amautur wrestling subplot and a brain in a jar that keeps yelling out "slutttzzz."
Still one of the 1980s craziest moves. Every scene is bizarre and hilarious. All hail Sheetar!
possibly the best movie ever, it would take too long to explain why
Ridiculously silly, slightly strange, but entertaining nonetheless
A true underrated gem. Obviously not for your casual movie fan but if you enjoy cheesy cheap stoopid fun then this is for you.
Part Five of the @supermosche/@Quan_Chi movie marathon, the anti-climactic conclusion.
All the humor they attempt in this movie is borne of racism, sexism and homophobia. Everything is shouting and clanking and steaming and being thrown around, a sonic nightmare that made it hard to pay attention to anything that was going on. If there was anything to really care about anyway.
A disappointing end to an otherwise fever-dream day of odd choices and crazy ridiculous movies.
Considered a loose sequel to Herschell Gordon Lewis’ “Blood Feast,” “Blood Diner” is a fittingly bloody, darkly comedic flick following two restaurant owning brothers as they seek to resurrect the Ancient Lumerian goddess Sheetar. This consists of stitching together pieces of “immoral women” to make a fitting vessel for the goddess. With the aid of their uncle (a homophobic brain-and-eyeballs floating in a jar that talks) they set about getting into situations involving naked to nearly naked women and proceed to cut them up. At one point there’s just a room full of dozens of topless women doing aerobics.
This was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. It’s got gore and boobs, some goofy humor, quirky characters (such as a fat, truckin' veggie burger expert), monsters and the such. If you’re a fan of sleazy, trashy cinema this should be right up your alley.
Available to watch on YouTube.
It's it possible to like a movie that is terrible . . . Yup I guess so. It's so bad it's good. For horror enthusiasts only!
Bizarre and hilarious. It's a throwback to Roger Corman and Herschell Gordon Lewis, but with the sensibility (and gore) of the 80s.
