Well, it had to happen eventually. Ignore all previous efforts of combining hardcore sex with horror films (trust us - Porno Holocaust really is much worse than it sounds, and that's saying something - read our review here of you don't believe us), it seems that newly-established film company Midnite Films are intent on producing the first 'mainstream' horror / sex flicks.
Set up by Hustler Magazine and VCA Pictures, Midnite Films' first picture will be Blood Lake from first time director C.L. Gregory.
Speaking to the website Horrorchannel.com, Gregory explained what he hoped to accomplish;
"I wanted to take the hard hitting horror thatís out in the market today and take the sex already in most good horror films even further, basically giving the viewer the same horror and suspense, and hot looking girls having sex. But of course they got to die in the end."

Synopsis: BLOOD LAKE
In the 1890's a small band of religious followers disbanded from the other religious sects on the eastern mainland under the leadership of preacher Jacob. His strict obedience to the Bible to flee the lust of the flesh and rebuke the sins of men, made many want to follow him. No one knew who he was, no one knew his true intentions, but they followed.
For many months they travelled west, searching for the place where Jacob was told by God to settle his faithful followers.
They were never heard from again.
A search party was sent but all that was found was a gruesome site of dead bodies, each with the look of terror on their faces, but never could they find the one who led them to their death - PREACHER JACOB.
All that was found was a book - a blood book which listed the names of all who went with him.
The book was supposedly destroyed along with all of the remains of the families and nothing was ever spoken of it again.
That was in 1890 and for over 100 years nothing has changed - until now.
