Plot – Spoilers:
Sardus runs his Theater of the Macabre show in New York featuring S&M acts, torture and killings – something he claims is all staged. Though his show attracts a fair-sized audience, it’s the mainstream and eventually Hollywood that Sardus really craves. His desire to expand isn’t just about a pompous man seeking wider appreciation for his artistry. Instead, it has a lot to do with his side business that’s actually become the main show – white slavery. Sardus is ably assisted in his perversions by his dwarfish S&M companion Ralphus, who’s also nifty with a blowpipe.
Bloodsucking Freaks is deceptively B-movie exploitation trash that will surprise you with its host of very impressive moments. It’s claimed that at the time of its showing – during the straw slurping scene, crowds would have their drinks and straws ready, to join in.
