A virtual history of early exploitation cinema
21 August 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

More than just a review of Lewis's career, this excellent film presents a history of early independent exploitation film production, an era - says Lewis - that had its fate sealed when Sam Peckinpah adapted what Lewis was doing and released THE WILD BUNCH with major studio money behind it.

Includes interviews with John Waters, Joe Bob Briggs, Frank Henenlotter, Drew Friedman and - of course - the master himself, H.G. Lewis. And naturally, there are clips and/or trailers from many of his films, incl. "Blood Feast", Two Thousand Maniacs!", "She-Devils on Wheels," "Just for the Hell of It", "Blast-Off Girls", "Gruesome Twosome" and "Wizard of Gore". It really doesn't get much more fun that this.
