Editorial Reviews

Herschell Gordon Lewis' pioneering "gore" films in deluxe special editions. First, Mrs. Fremont hires crackpot Egyptian cultist Fuad Ramses to cater a party--and he prepares a Blood Feast made from the grisly body parts of nubile young women. The world's first gore film. Then the Two Thousand Maniacs of a small Southern town celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Civil War by forcing a handful of Northerners to serve as "guests" in their macabre, blood-crazed fun and games. And when his girlfriend, Gigi, cuts her finger on a frame, maniacal artist Adam Sorg discovers a new shade of crimson that will make his artwork so special--human blood--in the shocktacular Color Me Blood Red.

I thought I might mention that the widescreen presentation on this Blu-Ray seems to be created artificially by cutting off the top and bottom of the picture. This is most obvious in 2000 Maniacs and the proof is that HGL and DFF are discussing Connie Mason's duck-foot pose when she's in the police station - on the full frame DVD you can see her feet, but in this presentation they are invisible. Then you'll notice how close ups of faces frequently cut off the lower mouth and jaw, as when the mayor and other crazies are leering at the dismembered woman on the desk. It's very disconcerting. Also, notice how the audio commentary on 2000 Maniacs in this presentation is slowed down for some reason, so everyone sounds like they've been chugging cough syrup. I really think all of these films looked fine on their DVDs and they should be seen in full frame, not widescreen. On the positive side, it's cool that all three movies fit on one disc with their trailers and outtakes and such. I just don't see why anyone would prefer the false widescreen which offers only about 2/3 of the original picture and creates some jarring images that make it seem as if the camera operator was incompetent at framing a picture. Buy the DVDs instead for a better if slightly more costly experience.

It would be easy to pass this up as being a package of movies that was put cheaply together for a quick buck if you didn't know better. Don't make that assumption.

These are three examples of early gore from the pioneers of the genre, Herschell Gordon Lewis and David F. Friedman. While not exactly Oscar-worthy, they have their place in cinema history. The transfers on the Blu-ray discs aren't exactly reference quality, but they're fine for these films, and probably far better than they ever looked on drive-in screens. In some scenes, you could argue they look TOO good. The main audio tracks are PCM mono.

BLOOD FEAST - If you ever wondered where modern horror started, look no further than this cult classic. A caterer puts together a feast using body parts of his victims. Filmed on a budget of $24,500 (according to Friedman in the commentary), it is one of the most horribly acted movies you will ever see...yet there's something appealing about this film even today. The gore, cheesy by today's standards, was like nothing ever seen before in its day. The movie became a sensation at drive-in circuits around the country and birthed a segment of cinema that simply hadn't existed previously.

TWO THOUSAND MANIACS - After making names for themselves with "Blood Feast", Lewis and Friedman made "Two Thousand Maniacs" with triple the budget. A small Southern town celebrates the anniversary of the Civil War by tricking some Northern tourists into town and killing them in various community events. Most of the actual residents of the shooting location were all too happy to participate in filming, which made the movie look far bigger than it was.

COLOR ME BLOOD RED - A frustrated artist can't find his color...until his girlfriend accidentally cuts herself.

Never really cared much for the classic "Blood" movies until I decided to try this collection from Something Weird. 'Blood Feast' was more entertaining than I had expected and is my favorite for this trilogy. What I like about this collection is that there are 3 commentary tracks(one for each movie); so after watching each movie, I can enjoy listening to the enlightening comments from Lewis and Friedman(Mr. Lewis definitely dominates all the commentary tracks and doesn't let anyone else get a word in edgewise).

The picture and sound quality for each movie is pretty damn good. And similar to most SWV releases, this set contains a good deal of special features including comment tracks, featurettes, trailers, etc. As a side note, the Blu-ray case feels rather cheap and flimsy. And also in my opinion the box-cover artwork seems a bit bland compared to Something Weird's older releases. But overall this is still a great release and the price on Amazon can't be beat at just under ten bucks for the set(at the time of my purchase).

DVD Review: VERY VERY EPIC! What you'll get is 3 of H.G. Lewis evolutionary gore movies Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs and Color Me Blood Red all in it's 1:78 ratio aspect. Also included is audio commentaries from H.G. Lewis, David Friedman and some guy who runs Something Weird Video in which are very fun to listen to. Normally, audio commentaries are boring, pretentious, and stupid but these guys are funny and honest and their stories are entertaining to listen to. Also there are a couple of short films, outtakes, trailers and photo galleries.

Movie Reviews: These movies are flat out entertaining. They are also exploitation so don't expect epics like Lord Of The Rings. Of course if you did expect it, you should be shot. These movies are the very first films to ever use gore EVER! Doesn't mean they are best gore films ever made (Dead Alive and Story Of Ricky are what I consider the best) but these films did what they suppose to do: ENTERTAIN! Who cares if they are low budget and crappy looking. They ARE GREAT!!

Conclusion: 5 Stars for the DVD, 4 stars for Blood Feast, 4 1/2 for Two Thousand Maniacs, and 3 1/2 for Color Me Blood Red.
