I'm a big Herschell Gordon Lewis fan, having seen most of his films at least a dozen times apiece. It pains me to say anything overtly negative about his work, but if you could point to any single film and say "this is where he screwed the pooch", undoubtedly it would be this one. The intent is clear enough: Lewis and screenwriter Alan J. Dachman were trying to make a horror comedy. But this mix of genres is always a dodgy proposition, requiring a delicate balance to be successful, and there's nothing delicate about "The Gore Gore Girls"; it's an ugly, squalid production from start to finish. (For once, HGL's low budget worked against him: the shooting locations--and the performers!--are too wretched-looking for any of this to be funny.) Worse yet, the zany energy that was such an integral part of Lewis's other movies is missing here. Even with all the nudity and graphic gore effects, this is a tired, halfhearted film, and the banter exchanged by private eye Frank Kress and strip club waitress Hedda Lubin falls embarrassingly flat. Yes, Henny Youngman also puts in an appearance, and it's not hard to understand why he later denied any involvement. Oh, well...everybody falters occasionally, and one clunker doesn't diminish the greatness of Herschell Gordon Lewis's body of work. Rest easy, sir.
