There is a little-known Australian exploitation flick known as Thirst. Launched manner again in 1979, it stars Henry Silva as the pinnacle of a large company that has made large enterprise out of vampirism, kidnapping innocents, and siphoning their pink stuff into drinks to maintain the vamps of the world satiated. It actually turns vampirism into capitalism, in addition to taking an apparent dig on the “bloodsuckers” of massive enterprise.
I’ve the sensation that Screwtape Studios, an up-and-coming indie outfit – additionally from Down Beneath – may additionally be followers of mentioned schlock, as their new arcade shooter, Damsel, dallies round these very same themes (and even has an analogous emblem). That is nice although, as a result of I get a kick out of outdated exploitation films, similar to I get a kick out of Damsel.
