Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore [2010]

This is a very informative documentary which covers Herschell Gordon Lewis’s filmography show casing all of his films, paying particular attention to his gore films.  It also features many legendary filmmakers such a David Friedman, Doris Wishman, Bunny Yeager, and John Waters.  The filmmakers, cast and crew members, and film historians discuss the legacy of Herschell the Great through a series of interviews, commentary on behind the scenes footage, and commentary on clips from his films.  This documentary also explores his personal and his business relationships with David Friedman, which is interesting because Friedman too is legendary in the world of exploitation films.  This is a very well made, well-informed documentary which documents a classic era in filmmaking that may never be again.  Lewis set a new standard for horror and exploitation filmmaking whose influence is deep-rooted and far-reaching.

Directors:  Frank Henenlotter &  Jimmy Maslon

  1. That may seem odd, but in fact, it is a very effective mode for people with some degrees of
    visual impairment, since when you focus on white letters, you are focussing on light itself.
    The sites mentioned here provide basic templates
    that can be used for both personal and commercial publications, but aren’t always readily compatible with online publishers. You don’t have to
    add that you are also being a cheapskate, or maybe
    you could take advantage of a teachable moment about sticking to
    a budget.

  2. Persistence helps us to stack the odds in our favor.
    With the beautiful flowing melody, brilliant harmonies and poetic lyrics, “White Winter Hymnal” gets
    its fair share of play on my mp3 player. com, “I just don’t really feel like rapping anymore.
