The "Godfather of Gore" does it again!
9 October 2010 | by alanmoraSee all my reviews

I caught a sneak preview of Herschell Gordon Lewis' latest gore film "The Uh-Oh Show" recently at the Cinema Wasteland convention in Cleveland OH. Mr. Lewis was in attendance for an informative Q & A after the screening and I have to say that the man who 'excreted'(his own words) such classics as "Blood Feast" and "2000 Maniacs" has definitely not lost his touch! In this film, Lewis obviously parodies himself and his own work with outrageous gore mixed with tongue-in-cheek humor. This film never takes itself too seriously and Mr. Lewis even has a role in the film as himself. There is also a cameo appearance by Troma film president Lloyd Kaufman, as a pimp of course. It's all here in gory details...arms are hacked off, heads decapitated, intestines are ripped out and yes there is even an obese drag queen thrown in for good measure. The film is a wrap around story concerning the exploits that take place on the set of a bizarre TV game show where the players are asked questions...if they are correct, they win fabulous prizes but if they are wrong...UH OH, they are brutally dismembered! There is another wrap around story surrounding a second TV show entitled "Grim Fairy Tales" (the film was apparently originally titled "Herschell Gordon Lewis' Grim Fairy Tales"). I am not quite sure what the future of this film will be, whether it will actually be released in theaters or go direct to DVD but if you are a fan of Lewis' work or of the gore film in general do yourself a favor and watch it, it will be an experience you will not forget!
