Description by OLDIES.com:

The Thirsty Dead (1973, 88 minutes): A stewardess and a go-go dancer are just two of the young women brazenly kidnapped off the streets of Manila, hustled through underground sewers and taken to the jungle caves of The Thirsty Dead. Ruled by a 500-year-old disembodied-head-in-a-box and a dragon-lady high priestess, the "dead" are actually a cult of immortals who can live forever by dining on blood. But when the stewardess is chosen to be one of them, she instead decides to escape with the help of a love-starved blood-drinker named Baru (who looks like a cross between a seventies swinger and a Mexican vampire). Trouble is, the farther from the cave they get, the more Baru starts to age, and the poor guy quickly turns into a prune...Imagine Lost Horizon done as a Filipino horror film, and you'll have some idea of The Thirsty Dead's utterly loopy charms...

The Swamp of the Ravens (1974, 87 minutes): Zombies, necrophilia and even autopsy footage all bubble to the surface of The Swamp of the Ravens. That's also where freaky Dr. Frosta dumps the dead after he's experimented on them. Unfortunately, the dead are now undead, and the swamp water is littered with living corpses. Worse, when Frosta's girlfriend tries to leave him for a lounge singer, Frosta takes her to his shack in the swamp, straps her to a gurney and...well...shows her how mad doctors do it....But while watching this ultra-rare horror oddity, please remember: "There is no explanation biologic, scientific or human! It's impossible but there it is!"

Product Description:

Double-feature from the twisted minds at Something Weird Video, including:

THE THIRSTY DEAD - A cult known as The Thirsty Dead are snatching women from the streets of Manila. A motley crue of go-go dancers, stewardesses, and other assorted lovelies are all held in a cave ruled by a 500 year old disembodied head in a box. To find out why, capture THE THIRSTY DEAD on DVD before they capture you!

SWAMP OF THE RAVENS - A crazed doctor is about to get his just deserts in this environmentally-friendly zombie pic! Having dumped plenty of corpses in a nearby swamp, the dead remnants of the goofy doc's deadly deeds come back to life, hell-bent on getting their revenge on the medical deviant!

Description by Image Entertainment:

This Halloween you're on the menu for two full courses of fright! First, the jungle caves of The Thirsty Dead are the new residence of a kidnapped stewardess, a go-go dancer and other young women snatched from the streets of Manila. Ruled by a 500-year-old disembodied head-in-a-box and a dragon-lady high priestess, this cult of immortals can live forever by dining on blood. Imagine Lost Horizon done as a Filipino horror film and you'll have some idea of this drive-in classic's loopy charms. Then zombies, necrophilia and even autopsy footage bubble to the surface of The Swamp of the Ravens, where Dr. Frosta dumps the dead rejects from his experiments. Unfortunately the dead are now undead, and the swamp water is infested with living corpses bent on a showdown with the mad doctor!
