He called himself Reverend. His church was lost souls. Prissy preacher Algernon Ford (Gavin Reed) is actually an ancient vampire organizing a family reunion. Despondent over his "deteriorating bloodline," the good Reverend, his hunchback servant and a trio of green-faced bloodsuckers rent Carfax Abbey and, using three of his female descendants, prepares to rebuild the family... Sex and violence courtesy of cult director Andy Milligan, who made some of the most notorious and highly eccentric micro-budget sexploitation and horror films that ever assaulted the public. One of Milligan's best, The Body Beneath is presented completely uncut, permeated with lunatic characters, goofy gore, and a disturbing atmosphere of decadence and decay that climaxes with an effectively nightmarish vampire soiree.
A blasphemous reverend who hides his vampiric nature behind the pulpit is searching for new blood to rehabilitate the deteriorating bloodline of his ghouls. His beautiful female companions are the perfect draw for drawing the blood they need in an orgy of sex and gore.
