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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
that unwanted guest to leave in haste get these ,most people will run screaming out the door never to be seen again !!
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!!!Read more ›
