Film: I Drink Your Blood
"Let it be known, brothers and sisters, that Satan was an acid head."
I Drink Your Blood note is a 1970 exploitation horror film directed by David E. Durston.A coven of eight psychopathic Satanist hippies have descended upon the tiny backwoods town of Valley Hills, which is all but deserted due to the nearby construction of a dam. After beating up and raping a local girl for spying on one of their rituals, the girl's grandfather marches over to the abandoned hotel they're shacking up in to interrogate them; but they beat him up to and force feed him LSD. The girl's little brother and the grandfather's grandson, a little boy named Pete, takes revenge by shooting a rabid dog, extracting some of its blood and injecting it into some meat pies. He then feeds those pies to the hippies, and they go rip-roaring insane. Nuff said!Notable for being screened as a double-feature with I Eat Your Skin, which somehow is a far lesser-known film.
