4.0 out of 5 stars One Simply Ghastly Film!
Andy Milligan's Ghastly Ones ,hmmm where to begin? Well, I guess a good place would be by comparing it to other movies - closest I can think of is a cross between early John Waters and Edward D Wood jr. There is some gore (most of it so hilariously amateur that you can't really take it seriously) and a couple of sex scenes but mostly it comes across as a homemade costume...

1.0 out of 5 stars Blood Rites- Video Nasty
The Ghastly Ones or Blood Rites as it was known in this country when it was released in the early 1980's is another awful film on the video nasty list. On for just over an hour it does feature some violence(severed heads and hands, stomachs gutted and garden forks through the neck) however this is so badly done in all ways the film becomes truly terrible. Far too much...

1.0 out of 5 stars Blood Rites- Video Nasty, 24 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghastly Ones & Seeds of Sin [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The Ghastly Ones or Blood Rites as it was known in this country when it was released in the early 1980's is another awful film on the video nasty list. On for just over an hour it does feature some violence(severed heads and hands, stomachs gutted and garden forks through the neck) however this is so badly done in all ways the film becomes truly terrible. Far too much talking through out also makes this a tedious watch, the best scene is over within a heartbeat when a severed head is found on the dinner table. Unless you are nasty collector avoid this cheap Andy Milligan effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Simply Ghastly Film!, 17 Feb 2012
This review is from: Ghastly Ones & Seeds of Sin [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Andy Milligan's Ghastly Ones ,hmmm where to begin? Well, I guess a good place would be by comparing it to other movies - closest I can think of is a cross between early John Waters and Edward D Wood jr. There is some gore (most of it so hilariously amateur that you can't really take it seriously) and a couple of sex scenes but mostly it comes across as a homemade costume drama with gore. Which pretty much covers most of this directors output. Ghastly Ones should appeal to fans of the two directors I just mentioned as well as a whole slew of cheap and cheerful films in the manner of Blood Feast, Microwave Massacre, The Corpse Grinders, The Headless Eyes, Axe, Date with a Kidnapper and Don't Answer the Phone - it's place as a banned movie on the infamous DPP list is slightly unwarranted really compared to some of the vicious dreck that has since been passed uncut that was also part of that particular lynch mob. Seeds of Sin, also included on the fabulous Something Weird disc, is slightly less watchable due to an unsteady master. Fans of Milligan shouldn't really have a problem with the lack of adequate lighting, poor camera work or muffled dialogue because those are part of what makes his movies, well, Andy Milligan movies. And Michael Weldon was right when he said "If you're an Andy Milligan fan, there's no hope for you"
