    Reportedly, Italian filmmakers gave multiple unrelated films alternate titles to fool people into thinking they were all part of the same “Zombie” series (i.e. Zombie 2, Zombie 7, Zombie 12, and so on and so forth and what not and what have you). I keep forgetting to look more closely into that.

    Which, like its fellow 1964 monster musical “The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies,” also referred to its “monsters” as, well, as “zombies.”

    Some time later, in 1968, George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead” did NOT, in fact, refer to its “monsters” as “zombies; IIRC it referred to them as “ghouls,” which happens to be the ACTUAL folklore classification for creatures that rise from the grave and eat human flesh.

    And yet, which interpretation of “zombies” has indelibly engraved itself onto the American psyche?

    Really makes you think, don’t it…? ;-)

    From dvdtalk.com:

    “I Eat Your Skin” (1970) – here rechristened ‘Zombies,’ which was the film’s working title before it was picked up to be the second half of a cheapo double bill with ‘I Drink Your Blood.’ The film was produced in 1964 but went undistributed for six long years, and one look explains why: it’s an utterly square attempt at early-60s hipness, with a jazzy soundtrack and a hero (William Joyce) who fancies himself a Connery-era James Bond, surrounding himself with platinum blondes…Zombies reveal themselves to be ethnic extras with faces covered in dried oatmeal; they wander about and occasionally attack, and Tenney pads the picture with a couple exploitation scenes of witch doctor rituals, and we fall asleep.”

    Sorry to see you go. You’ve helped me keep track of RT developments.

    I got excited thinking this was the movie by Lucio Fulci. Alas

    What happens is that movies get released under different titles in Italy, and then they make a supposed sequel using the Italian name.

    Like Dawn of the Dead was released in Italy as “Zombi”. So Lucio Fulci made a movie called Zombi 2 to cash in on things.

    While that’s not the case here (this is just an old crappy Hollywood movie), they did do Ghost House, which was apparently a fake sequel to Evil Dead 1 & 2 (apparently called La Casa in Italy for some reason, with Ghost House being La Casa 3 there)

    I remember the(I assume revival) drive-in promotion when it was paired with ‘I Drink Your Blood’. The narrator read “They Eat Your Skin, They Drink Your Blood! They Rip Your Guts Out!” over a soundtrack of screaming women. This ad aired during afternoon cartoons in the early 1970s after “Dark Shadows”, and all us little five and six year olds thought it was hilarious. I remember the ads for ‘Don’t Go in the Basement’ giving the more sensitive kids pause.

    I would sneak a bag of extra crunchy pork rinds into the theater just to add audio authenticity to the zombie scenes.

    “I Drink Your Blood” is a Much better, non-boring as H–L movie worth checking out. I remember The Monster Times magazine (70s) reprinting the poster for the double bill of “I Drink Your Blood & I Eat Your Skin,”/ back when horror movies weren’t so pretentious…

    Sorry; that sounds very nosy. I’m just more stunned and sad than anything. You’ve been a great promoter of all things MSTie, pointing toward things I might otherwise have missed. Thanks!

    Thank you and Kenneth Morgan for the kind words and to all the members who gave my post the likes.

    Actually, thanks to everyone who liked my posts throughout the years.

    I’ve enjoyed my time here as Lavendare (before I messed up on creating a DISQUS login) and as MST3Kme.

    As unfortunate as the situation is, I got the sense it was time for me to leave here.

    Yeah, they should’ve played in a triple-feature with “I Puke Your Pants”…if that movie actually existed.

    Whatever/whomever gave you that sense can go to hell. You’re as welcome here (and in some cases, *more* welcome here) as anyone else. I hope you reconsider.

    By the way, I noticed last night that Kevin replied to your tweet. Cool!
