A MUST for anyone interested in the evolution of the horror genre
Packed with more gore and nudity than any documentary I can think of, THE GODFATHER OF GORE is almost like watching a "Greatest Hits" list of Lewis' films, so I'm hoping new comers will be enticed to go back and check out these precursors to Friday THE 13th and HALLOWEEN, and the haters may see what a great guy (if not the greatest director) Herschell Gordon Lewis was (and still is).
Even though I've been a fan of Lewis since reading about him in the 4th issue of FANGORIA way back when, have read 3 books about him, and have met and spoke with him and David Friedman, I still learned some things about him in this wonderfully entertaining and educational tribute that any horror fan interested in the roots of modern horror cinema would be crazy to miss.
