I Drink Your Blood Grindhouse Theater Day says
At the suggestion of local cinephile William Kennedy, celebrate the opposite of Art House Theater Day Day with this special GRINDHOUSE THEATER DAY screening.

NEW RESTORATION! Originally released in February 1971, I DRINK YOUR BLOOD was one of the first motion pictures to be rated X for violence. Aiming to outdo NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, producer Jerry Gross instructed writer/director Durston to discard all of the old monster-mash cliches and shoot straight for the gut with maximum shock value and gore. The result was pure American drive-in genius. Even after 30 years, IDYB still holds up as one of the most entertaining and wildly demented movies of its kind. After consuming rabies-infected meat pies, an LSD-addicted hippie cult goes on a vicious murdering rampage! Heavily censored since its original release, this infamous landmark of cinematic brutality is being presented in all its blood-splattered glory. Lovingly restored by Grindhouse Releasing.
