Amazon Prime Set To Debut Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Horror Anthology BloodMania
Although the director tragically passed away at the age of 90 this past September, he left behind a massive body of work that earned him the title of the “Godfather of Gore”. 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.
Comingsoon.net, 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.”
