It is with great sadness that we report this morning that the ‘Godfather of Gore’, Mr. Herschell Gordon Lewis has passed away. Known for such films as Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs!, A Taste of Blood, The Gruesome Twosome, Scum of the Earth!, and She-Devils on Wheels to name only a few. His impact on the genre was felt far and wide and he was considered a true gentlemen of horror. He was 90 years old. Our founder Tom Holland was in talks with Herschell about working on a project together in the past few months and he was excited to get working again. Even after a life well lived it still feels like he is gone to soon. The news came via Something Weird Video.
Rest in peace Herschell Gordon Lewis and scare’em to death up in heaven!
