A welcome and overdue career-overview/bio of the gore Godfather.
on June 26, 2011
A friend and I were lucky enough to see this on the big screen in NYC last Spring, and we both loved it. A funny, illuminating, and overdue love-letter to the Godfather Of Gore, the film delves deeply into Lewis' career (if not his personal life) and we follow it's trajectory film by film. Narration and interview clips with Lewis, producing-partner David F. Friedman, cult auteur Frank Henenlotter, and Trash reviewer Joe Bob Briggs keep the viewer in the loop - providing context, and lots of laughs. Fans of Cult/Trash/Horror/Exploitation cinema need to have this dvd nestled between their copies of 'Blood Feast' and 'Color Me Blood Red', as it serves to provide much-needed backround info on one of our unsung horror-heroes, and works as an unusually entertaining shlockumentary.
