The film was not released until six years after it was made. Film distributor Jerry Gross bought it and paired it on a double bill with I Drink Your Blood and renamed it I Eat Your Skin, although the two have nothing in common. Previous titles of the film include Zombie Bloodbath and Voodoo Blood Bath.
In a review of a box set, David Cornelius of DVD Talk wrote, "The film was produced in 1964 but went undistributed for six long years, and one look explains why: it's an utterly square attempt at early-60s hipness". Paul Pritchard of DVD Verdict wrote, "This is just the type of cheap crap that sullies the good name of exploitation cinema." In The Zombie Moving Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle wrote, "Nevermind the title—this is as mild as horror gets, and nobody eats any skin."
