A Taste of Blood [DVD] [1967]

Unseen for many years, this vampire epic from cult director Herschell Gordon Lewis runs over two hours in length. Bill Rogers (Shanty Tramp) plays John Stone, who becomes a modern-day vampire after drinking some imported brandy. The usual phony gore and wretched dialogue follow, and Lewis appears as a British sailor. The director considered this his masterpiece, which could be why he allowed minor scenes to go on for far too long and included more dialogue than in most of his other, more enjoyable gore trifles combined. Luckily, Lewis was yet to deliver his most outrageous and entertaining films, The Wizard of Gore (1970) and The Gore-Gore Girls (1972).
