This cartoonish, gory tribute to the films of Herschell Gordon Lewis details the attempts of two siblings to provide a body for an ancient goddess out of the hacked-up parts of dozens of scantily clad girls. The Tutman brothers (Rick Burks and Carl Crew) follow the practices taught them in
childhood by their uncle, who later died in a hail of police bullets after going on a murderous rampage. Their first step in raising the goddess Sheetar is to dig up their uncle's moldering corpse and remove his brain, which they restore with incantations and place in a jar of liquid. The brain
instructs them to prepare the Blood Banquet, which has a menu of teenager niblets, and to build the body for Sheetar out of the other human parts. The lads serve the leftovers at their health food restaurant, attracting a large and dedicated clientele. Although directed by a woman, BLOOD DINER's
consciousness is no more heightened than that of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE or MANIAC. Jackie Kong watched most of H.G. Lewis' gore-fests before making this, and admitted that BLOOD FEAST, Lewis' 1963 gore epic, was the primary source for the plot; moreover, director Kong injects the sort of contempt
for the original material that ruins most horror satires. There's nothing the least bit redeeming about BLOOD DINER.
