A Bucket of Blood – 1959 – United States

A Bucket of Blood, with The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) and Creature from the Haunted Sea (1961), forms a trilogy of horror/comedy collaborations between director/producer Roger Corman and writer Charles B. Griffith. A Bucket of Blood stars the prolific Dick Miller whose 175 acting credits include early Corman flicks: It Conquered the World (1956), Not of this Earth (1957), War of the Satellites (1958), and The Little Shop of Horrors (1960), and later blockbusters: Gremlins (1984), The Terminator (1984), and Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990). Miller’s A Bucket of Blood character is Walter Paisley, a name appearing in other Dick Miller appearances like Hollywood Boulevard (1976), The Howling (1981), Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983), Chopping Mall (1986), Night of the Creeps (1986) as “Walt”, and Shake, Rattle, and Rock! (1994) as “Officer Paisley”.
