In 1963 Herschell Gordon Lewis, an independent filmmaker known for making limited release "cutie" pictures, changed forever the face of American cinema when he released "Blood Feast." This film, as low budget as you could possibly get, ushered in the era of the gore film. While it would be quite some time before Hollywood caught on to the fact that certain segments of the movie going public hungered for films containing nauseating scenes of explicit violence, H.G. Lewis took one look at the receipts for "Blood Feast" and decided he better quickly make another movie similar to this one. What followed was a series of gruesome zero budget shockers, films like "The Wizard of Gore," "A Taste of Blood," "2000 Maniacs," "Color Me Blood Red," and "The Gruesome Twosome." Lewis lensed the downright offensive "The Gore-Gore Girls" before retiring from the film business in 1972 in order to devote his time to the advertising industry. It wasn't until 2002 that the director returned to form with "Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat," a movie which proved beyond a doubt that the Godfather of Gore still has what it takes to gross out an audience. It's elevates the soul to see something as audacious as a "Herschell Gordon Lewis Collection" hit stores. They even threw in a couple of Hersch's non-gore flicks for good measure.
I just can't get over a Lewis boxed set. First up is Lewis's ghastliest film, "The Gore-Gore Girls," a movie so repulsive that one must see it to believe it. What's the plot, you ask? What are you, somebody who needs a coherent plot? Well, there is a plot here if you look hard enough.

If you've watched the movie Juno, you probably remember one scene that shows an excerpt from an old horror movie, The Wizard of Gore. As a fan of such movies, this had piqued my interest, so I eventually picked up a box of three movies by Wizard's director, H. Gordon Lewis. The movies (his "Blood Trilogy" of Blood Feast, 2000 Maniacs and Color Me Blood Red) were schlocky but fun, motivating me to pick up a second collection which, among other movies, includes Wizard of Gore. This set is the H. Gordon Lewis collection.

H. Gordon Lewis directed and produced movies from the 1960s into the early `70s. All independently made on shoestring budgets, they hardly have the look of studio fare. In addition, Lewis knew that to make money, he'd have to cross certain boundaries of "good taste", at first with sex, then with violence. It was great stuff for teens and young adults. By the time of the movies in this set, Lewis had really carved his own little niche: he knew he was not making classics, but he also knew he was bringing in the audiences.

The first film in this set is Gruesome Twosome, a comic movie about an old lady who runs a wig shop with her demented son (she's not all there, herself). She advertises a room for rent to attract young college girls, who too late find out that they are to be killed and scalped to provide new material. I guess it's one of those things you learn about places to avoid, like those shops that offer "special meat" dishes. Along with the movie is a short on wig making.

A Taste of Blood, by far Lewis's longest horror movie (at nearly two hours), is a reworking of the Dracula story, with an heir of the legendary vampire taking on his ancestor's traits.

The Gruesome Twosome- This was the first Herschell Gordon Lewis I've ever seen! What I loved about this is that it has the classic look of the 1960's and was extremely gory for a movie made in that time period. The thing I found very annoying was the old lady always talking to her dead stuffed cat! Her and her son have a wig shop and the wigs are made from women's real hair, because the son scalps the women and kills them in gory ways. I think this movie should be remade. I'd probably recommend THE GRUESOME TWOSOME!!!

A Taste of Blood- I found this movie to be incredibly boring, and slow. A businessman named John Stone receives a package in the mail from London. It's two old large bottles of brandy filled with vampire blood. Everytime he drinks it, he slowly transforms into a vampire. I would not recommend A TASTE OF BLOOD!!!

Something Weird- This movie is so awful, that it's actually funny. It's like a crazy acid trip. A man named Cronin Mitchell becomes horribly disfigured, and gains psychic powers. He soon meets a witch who will make him handsome if he becomes her lover. Everybody else in the world sees the witch as a pretty woman named Ellen. Mitchell is asked by the police to help stop a killer in the streets. If you love bad movies, and killer bed sheets, you'll love SOMETHING WEIRD!!!

She Devils on Wheels- This movie is crazy bad, and has laughable dialog. It was basically plotless. I thought Honey Pot was adorable. A gang of women called The Man Eaters ride their motorcycles, race each other, and have wild parties at their clubhouse afterward. Soon, a rival gang of men led by Joe-Boy come in on their territory. If you love Grindhouse style films, you might like SHE DEVILS ON WHEELS!!!
