Deathdream (1974)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Deathdream (1974) In Vietnam, a soldier named Andy is caught in the middle of explosions and gunfire and he gets shot. Then, we go to his family in the States, who is having dinner and wondering when he'll be back home from the war. Then there's a knock--and a soldier gives the father a telegram with bad news--that their son is dead. Yet Any mysteriously appears home the next day. His parents and sister are happy and they think the telegram was a mistake. Then, there's a local murder, a man with his throat cut and puncture wounds on his arm. Witnesses say the man had a hitchhiker in his car--and we can't help but think this was Andy. And Andy is acting very strange, remote and creepy. The family dog does not like him, a dog which he ends up strangling in front of some local kids. His father sees this horrible act and calls his son crazy.

The father calls in a local doctor to have a look at Andy and the doc quickly connects him to the murder. So Andy, looking more sickly, pays him a visit that night. Andy asks him to feel his pulse and he doesn't have one. Nor does he have a heart beat. The doctor freaks out and tries to get away but Andy kills him and takes his blood. The next day he looks healthy, not like a rotting corpse.

This is a decent low-budget, gritty vampire movie which reminds me a bit of Romero's MARTIN and Cronenberg's SHIVERS. Recommended. Directed by Bob Clark (BLACK CHRISTMAS) and features special effects by Tom Savini. Also known as DEAD OF NIGHT.
