A direct-to-video film shot in Hong Kong, Pale Blood tells the story of Michael Fury (George Chakiris, West Side Story), who is a vampire out to preserve the honor of being a bloodsucker by stopping whoever is killing people and draining them of their blood. He’s helped by occult-obsessed investigator Lori (Pamela Ludwig, City Limits).
This has a cast of people who will delight those of us who rented way too many videos in 1990, including Wings Hauser and Darcy DeMoss (Vice Academy 3, Hardbodies).
It was written and directed by female director V.V. Dachin Hsu, who was also the second unit director of a movie that was often discussed in my home, Phat Beach. Her co-director was Michael W. Leighton, who also made 1989’s Rush Week and wrote the Hauser and Sybil Danning-starring L.A. Bounty. He also acted in Carter Stevens’ 1979 adult film Punk Rock (which also has Robert Kerman from Cannibal Holocaust).
Speaking of punk rock, Agent Orange appears in this movie. It has plenty of on-location images of the Sunset Strip to make you think that more of this movie was made in the U.S.
You can get this from Vinegar Syndrome.
