Blood Feast, also known as Night of 1,000 Cats, is a 1973 horror exploitation film by Mexican writer/director Rene Cardona, Jr. It was released in the United States in 1972.[1]



The film centers around a wealthy man named Hugo. He spends most of his time driving his helicopter picking up beautiful women in Mexico. After he wines and dines them he decapitates them, grinds them up, and feeds them to his pack of cats who live in his basement. He adds their severed heads to his collection of human heads which he keeps in jars.[1]

Fan Fare

"Blood Feast" supports little fan base, but has made a home for itself amongst exploitation film fans. The film caused mild controversy due to its seemingly cruel treatment to the cats. One scene depicts Hugo violently grabbing a large white cat and tossing him over a high wall into its pen. The camera does not cut away, thus indicating that the real cat was thrown.


"Blood Feast" is in color and was released in the US in 1972 with an 'R' rating by the MPAA. Unedited it runs 93 minutes; the American version, however, runs 63. The movie was filmed in Spanish, but has English dubs.[1]
