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.
