  1. Paul Mallinson's rating of the film Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore

    Revealing and expertly-crafted documentary about the films of HG Lewis. Hilariously self-deprecating and wonderfully nostalgic. Made by the guy who created Basket Case and Brain Damage, no less. Definitely worth a watch if you like grindhouse cinema.

  2. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore

    A splendid tribute/history of the accidental birth of one chapter of midnight movie history. The volume of people that Hennenlotter and Maslon dug up for interviews would be staggering enough if each weren't so fascinating and charismatic. For something that received all the fanfare of a DVD extra, it's one of the most engaging documentaries about filmmaking I've ever seen. Course, I could watch Lewis footage all day
