Alexander shot part of the film using his iPhone and stated that "my recurring effect of swirling blood and colored chemicals are captured by the iPhone with absolutely no color correcting or post-production interference." Of the film's inspiration, Alexander wanted to create a "vampire version of Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, the Wrath of God, and, so, I wrote a theme that reminded me a little bit of the late, great Popol Vuh’s work on Aguirre".

  • Reception

    Ain't It Cool News gave Queen of Blood a mostly positive review, comparing it favorably to early Jess Franco vampire films. NOW Toronto was more mixed and commented "Part prequel, part sequel and full-on homage to the moody Euro horrors Alexander grew up watching, it's perhaps a little less effective than its predecessor, but if you're tuned in to the Mario Bava/Jean Rollin vibe, you'll like what it's doing." DVD Talk wrote a mixed review for the film, stating that while they didn't care for the way Queen of Blood was shot while stating that they did enjoy the soundtrack and dialogue-free approach.
