Herschell Gordon Lewis
It's been over 50 years since Herschell Gordon Lewis pioneered the art of the splatter film, and it makes us happy to see he's still doing his thing all these years later. At the ripe old age of 85, the "Godfather of Gore" is readying principal photography on an anthology called BloodMania.
How'd you like to get a piece of gore from the Godfather of Gore himself? If you order an Ultimate Deluxe DVD of Herschell Gordon Lewis' The Uh-Oh! Show, that's exactly what you'll get... and more!
He’s been hailed as both a visionary and a provocateur but what sets iconic writer/director/producer Herschell Gordon Lewis apart from the rest of his peers is how business-minded his approach to the horror genre has always been since the very beginning.
"Godfather of Gore" Herschell Gordon Lewis is back - with his biggest and bloodiest film yet! Film Ranch and Cult Movie Mania have announced the August 30th DVD release of The Uh-Oh! Show, the all-new horror/comedy by acclaimed horror film legend H.G. Lewis, director of Blood Feast and Two Thousand Maniacs.
And the list of folks we want to kiss today continues to grow. Next up for our affections? Image Entertainment for their announcement that they're bringing The Godfather of Gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blood Trilogy to Blu-ray! According to High Def Digest Image Entertainment has listed Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blood Trilogy for Blu-ray on September 27th.
Any time that we get to report on a classic horror film hitting DVD in style, we cannot help but smile. Especially when the title is something as obscure as Monster A-Go Go! From the Press Release
Fantasia 2010 is in full swing, and one of the films that has already screened is the mostly well received documentary Herschell Gordon Lewis - The Godfather of Gore. Dread Central's favorite cartoonist Rick Trembles is also a resident of Montreal and a regular attendee of the annual film fest so of course he had to weigh in with his 2 cents on the film.
