Happy 82nd Birthday, Herschell Gordon Lewis
Herschell Gordon Lewis, the Godfather of Gore, was born today, June 15, in 1929.
After successfully conquering the nudie picture genre, Lewis invented the modern splatter movie with his 1963 classic, Blood Feast. Fast forward to the present and the man is still proving he’s got what it takes with his latest film, the satirical gore-fest The Uh-Oh Show, which will be released on DVD this August.
