Blood Beat (1983)

Anybody ever see or at least heard of this crazy lookin' obscurity from back in the day? Not sure if it's worth tracking down or not....

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088822/combined

and here's a wonderfully awful Japanese trailer:

Update:
I stand corrected:
http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Christma...rds=Blood+Beat

But maybe I should just leave well enough alone, based on the feedback

Seen it. Pretty wild flick. I thought the cheese was highly entertaining but that's just me.

I watched it off YouTube last year... really strange flick. The story doesn't make much sense at all. It's like whoever wrote/directed it was really high on something at the time.

I thought it was worth seeing in a "so bad its good" kinda way.

most of the feedback seems to be about the dvd quality not the film, definately seems worth a watch if you can find a decent source.

It doesn't make much sense but I really enjoy this weird little cheese ball film.

I actually have the over-sized clamshell TransWorld VHS - haven't watched it yet though.

Really?? All I could find was the trailer. Any chance you could post a link? here's hoping it's still available.

It may have been taken down by now, as it was well over a year ago. I can't locate it on there now either...

Wow, so Ninja III isn't alone in the 80s 'Woman possessed by a Samurai' genre.

Well, I just watched this and am left a little confused. I can understand the appeal with the early 80's campy slasher-esque routines, but a little more explanation please?

Spoiler:
Who is the little girl in the picture in the room upstairs in the bedroom? Some third child that died? Was the Samurai there all along or did it come with the girlfriend? I'm assuming the latter, but this ghost seems to cruise around on its own without her - she doesn't really get possessed until the end seemingly. And the part with her masterbating while the Samurai is killing the neightbors - wtf?


How about that musical score in the final scene? I assume that's some public domain material, or this flick was low-budget enough that no one cared. I dunno, it's definitely one of the most odd slashers I've ever seen, but I wouldn't say it's necessarily good.
