Part One: Origins
Growing up in the eighties, I was one of those hundreds of thousands of fortunate kids who were given the wonderful opportunity to get to witness and be a part of not only the beginning of the Home Video boom, but it’s rise, it’s dominance, it’s influence, and ultimately, it’s legacy. The introduction of Videodiscs, Videocassettes, and Laserdiscs spawned such a monumental technological and cultural revolution and would both establish and spread the presence of video players of every size and format into homes everywhere. There was something about having that great big, bulky top-loading video cassette recorder mounted on our televisions sets like a trophy. We felt proud to have it displayed for anyone who stopped by and always made sure to point it out to our friends when they’d come over to visit. We’d smile and beam when someone would give it a compliment, »

The egendary cult director who brought you such classics as Blood Feast, The Gruesome Twosome, Something Weird, The Wizard Of Gore, Two Thousand Maniacs!, She Devils on Wheels and The Gore Gore Girls returns to the horror genre this year with the anthology film Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania, and Diabolique Films and Hgb Entertainment have released the first poster and trailer, which we have for you here…
BloodMania is a horror anthology comprised of four distinct segments that feature a raucous combination of satirical humor, horror, and enough surprises to satiate the appetites of a broad range of film enthusiasts and horror fans alike.
Hershell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania is set for release later this year.

A horror film is only as good as its bad guy. Thus films with nonsensical bad guys – like the mangle in Tobe Hooper’s The Mangler, the (titular) Leprechaun and the ridiculous Fuad Ramses in Hg Lewis’ Blood Feast – end up being as pathetic as their villains. Although Lewis would go on to create a really good bad guy in Montag the Magician in The Wizard of Gore.
Montag is inherently evil. He kills all of the women who participate in his stage act. He wants to cause death on a larger scale and he spends vast swathes of the movie having a tripped out self-debate on the nature of reality. With his bushy eyebrows and greying hair (which changes from scene to scene depending on how much talcum powder has been used), Montag is a fabulous trash horror icon.
