The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore (2010)

Director: Frank Henenlotter & Jimmy Maslon

The story behind the film career of the "Godfather of Gore", Herschell Gordon Lewis.

My Take:
A fine documentary with Lewis and his producing partner talking about their start in the movie business with cheap, nudie films and then on to cheap gore movies.
A fascinating insight to exploitation movies of the 60's and 70's.

Rating: So Good
