[[NightmareRetardant Though about as scary as a child's Casper costume the day after Halloween]], the film is notable for being the first [[{{Gorn}} really, really gory movie]] -- the first "Splatter Movie", as they're called -- ever made in the west. It's also notable as the first film in Lewis' unofficial "Blood Trilogy" (the other films are ''Film/TwoThousandManiacs'' and ''ColorMeBloodRed''). It has two spoof remakes: one from 1987, titled ''Blood Diner'', and the other from 2002 by Lewis himself, titled ''Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat''.

* {{Gorn}}: This is the first splatter movie ever made in the west, though not the first splatter movie made period -- that honor belongs to the 1960 Japanese horror movie ''Jigoku'', a.k.a. ''Film/TheSinnersOfHell''.
** This movie is still quite gory even by today's standards, which probably led to more than a few people in the 1963 audiences tossing their lunch.
** Much of the even ''more'' violent content was cut from the film as well before release, and is lost forever.
