Amazon Prime Set To Debut Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Horror Anthology BloodMania

Diabolique Films and HGB Entertainment Ltd. reveal that legendary horror director Herschell Gordon Lewis‘ last film BloodMania will premiere on Amazon Prime.

Over the course of his 50-year career, Lewis pioneered the “splatter” film genre and became known for mixing elements of horror and erotic cinema. Some of his movies include Blood Feast, Scum of the Earth!, Two Thousand Maniacs!, and A Taste of Blood.

Set to start streaming this Friday, BloodMania was the last movie Lewis made before his death. Described as a horror anthology film, the project languished in post-production before being finally completed., the source of this story, quoted two of the figures involved with the project as follows:

Diabolique Films Vice President and HGB Entertainment and Producer James Saito had this to say, “It is extremely gratifying that Herschell’s final film can now be enjoyed by his loyal international fan base, and to be able to introduce his work to a whole new generation of horror fans.”

The horror anthology film consists of four tales – each representing a different genre of classic horror cinema. Lewis himself described the film as, “… a perfect combination of horror and satirical comedy.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
