Mardi Gras Massacre is a 1978 horror film written and directed by Jack Weis. It is a semi-remake of the 1963 film Blood Feast.


In New Orleans a serial killer wearing a welder's mask strikes during the Mardi Gras festival. He goes into a bar and asks for the "most evil" prostitute he can find. He then takes her to a basement where he ties her up and cuts off her limbs and genitals. He then kills more prostitutes to get their hearts to sacrifice to an ancient Aztec goddess. A policeman who uses a prostitute as a lover and source of information then hunts down the killer based on her tips.


The film was on the UK Government's list of Video Nasties in the 1980s and has not been resubmitted to the BBFC for a certificate since.
