5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous! July 6, 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential viewing for fans of "bad" movies! January 15, 2008
This is a fantastic DVD collection from everyone's favorite source of strange, bizarre, and just plain trashy films: Something Weird Video. I have a few of their DVD collections, but this is definitely my favorite. There is such a range of watchability in so-called "bad movies", that SWV titles are sometimes hit-and-miss. You can have awful movies that are hilarious all the way through (Plan 9 From Outer Space), cheap movies that are actually amazing (Carnival of Souls), or movies that are just painful to sit through. The films need to be engaging and that's exactly what Herschell Gordon Lewis spent his career doing - terrible films that are always entertaining and never dull.

SWV collects six of HGL's best goresploitation flicks, minus the Trilogy of Blood, which has its own SWV box set. Although HGL fans probably know what to expect, I'll give a little summary of each of the titles.

"The Gruesome Twosome" - This is classic HGL - plenty of gore, plenty of inexplicable filler, so bizarre that it's fascinating. You'll find some interesting weapon along the way including a motorized kitchen knife (think Sharper Image from the 60s). Grade: A

"She-Devils on Wheels" - HGL's female biker movie. It's low on gore, but high on camp. It feels like a less edgy version of Russ Meyer's "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" It's not my favorite, but still fun. Grade: B+

"Something Weird" - It's the weakest of the set. It sort of deals with witches and LSD. There are some interesting hallucination scenes and some decent music, but not much gore and not too many creative deaths. Even HGL himself declines to provide much of a commentary on this one. Grade: C

"The Wizard of Gore" - My personal favorite HGL film of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars It ain't art but it's fun July 27, 2008
Verified Purchase
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.
