Nightmare in Blood is a 1978 American comedy horror film directed by professional late night television horror movie host, and writer, John Stanley.[1]


Attendees at a horror-film convention in San Francisco keep disappearing. It turns out that the guest of honor is a real vampire, and his henchmen are kidnapping the convention guests. A horror writer, a Sherlock Holmes fan and an Israeli Nazi-hunter set out to stop him.


Primary filming occurred at the Fox Oakland Theatre in Oakland, California.[2] The Fox was renamed the "Palace" in the film.


The film ran in the drive-in theater circuit for nearly a decade and had a wide VHS release in the 1980s.

In 2004, Image Entertainment released the film on DVD.[3]

It had its broadcast premiere with a national syndicated showing on Mr. Lobo's Cinema Insomnia.[4]
