Verbatim Box Synopsis
Lock your doors... check your windows... turn on all your lights... look under your bed... because the Blood Freak is on the loose. This horrifying, addicted monster is on the loose and has an insatiable thirst for addict's blood. To survive others must die a horrifying and slow death at the hands of the half-monster half-man mutant who stalks the night.

U.S. Regal Video sleeve! Apparently the company didn't feel promoting the film's turkey-headed monster was their best marketing choice...

U.S. Something Weird Video sleeve!

U.K. Midnite Movies sleeve!

Spanish Video Dimas sleeve!

French A.V.L. Production sleeve, courtesy of Nanarland!
Its key art is actually taken from Jess Franco's Manhunter (1980)!

French Colombus sleeve, also from Nanarland! This time, 
the key art is stolen from Lech Kowalski's Story of a Junkie (1987)!

Awesomely gory theatrical trailer, uploaded by Dead End Drive-In!

Looking for Blood Freak on VHS? It's available on Amazon here. An even better choice is the excellent DVD from Something Weird Video, featuring a nice transfer supplemented with a ton of related drugsploitation and turkey shorts!
