The blissful stew of elements seems to be thrown together as though to see how many gonzo exploitation ingredients can be combined at once topless aerobics massacres; wrestlemania with Carl Crew thrown in the ring against a goose-stomping Adolf Hitler lookalike; and a marvellous climax that mingles green disco dancing zombies clambering for a potful of human limbs, a goddess with a toothed vagina in her stomach blasting lightning bolts. The film is scored with both classical music and parodied punk. The gore is hilariously absurd when a guard is whacked over the head his eyeballs go flying out; there is a scene where the entire diner is sprayed in vomit; another with the diner owner trying to drive with his hands severed at the wrist. However, the funniest of all is one scene where Rick Burks, promising kinky thrills, coats a bimbo in batter and then shoves her head into a deep fry vat, which she emerges from her head a beehive of fried batter that Burks proceeds to swat across the other side of the room with a large stick. The idea of an Egyptian goddess being worshipped two-million years ago is just one of the films deliberate non-sequitirs.
Blood Diner was originally intended as a sequel to Herschell Gordon Lewiss Blood Feast (1963).
Jackie Kong had originally made the B-budget mutant splatter film The Being (1983). Blood Diner is her best film. She had only directed two other films with the non-genre comedies Night Patrol (1984) and The Underachievers (1987).
