The Incredibly Strange Film Show (1988) "Herschell Gordon Lewis"
This British television show was hosted by Jonathan Ross and featured interviews with various "B" movie makers. When viewed today this series is all the more important because so many of the filmmakers are no longer with us.
Fans of Herschell Gordon Lewis will enjoy this episode, which has the famous drive-in director talking about some of the more popular movies in his career. Once again Ross plays the host as he interviews Lewis and they discuss films such as BLOOD FEAST, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS, THE GRUESOME TWOSOME and THE WIZARD OF GORE. We even get John Waters adding a few comments about seeing these films when he was younger. For the most part this is a fine episode but be aware that we only get discussions on his gore movies and SHE DEVILS ON WHEELS. His nudie, kids and other movies are pretty much overlooked but we still get some fun stories about how these films broke new grounds.
