Trivia: BLOOD HOOK was made two years prior to the first MST episode shown on KTMA, but it's MST-related because of the people involved in making it. Besides being the premiere of the working relationship between MST3000's Jim Mallon and Kevin Murphy, this early Troma Studios release has much (de)merit on its own, with locale, dialogue and performances reminiscent of 303-POD PEOPLE. If you can get by all the blood, BLOOD HOOK is a decent little horror/comedy. Viewers will never forget the Barco-lounger out in the yard. Oooo, that music hurts the plate in my head!
