R.I.P Herschell Gordon Lewis

I just heard the news about the passing of The Godfather of Gore and it me very sad, because I enjoyed watching his movies.


I remember watching Blood Feast and I knew that every viewing of one his films would be a very special one. I loved the gore in them and all the creative kills and my favorite film is Two Thousand Maniacs, but I also do love the remake 2001 Maniacs, it was a very nice homage to H.G Lewis.


Other movies that I really like are Wizard of Gore, Color me blood red and The Gore Gore Girls. I haven’t seen all of his films yet and I really want to see The Gruesome Twosome. Lewis did a lot of great things for the horror genre and opened up a whole new world to gore by making Blood Feast.
