Godfather of Gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis Returns With ZOMBIFICADOR!!
*UPDATE* – There’s a BRAND NEW video featuring the Godfather of Gore himself, Herschell Gordon Lewis explaining the campaign! Check it out and the bottom!!
Herschell Gordon Lewis, the man responsible for the term “gore”, along with such horror classics as BLOOD FEAST, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!, and an odd favorite of mine, SHE-DEVILS ON WHEELS, has enlisted the help of today’s crowd-funding craze to help his latest opus, ZOMBIFICADOR get made and on its way. An anthology that promises to be Lewis’ “goriest film yet”, the film will star genre favorites Bill Moseley (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2), Michael Berryman (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST), among other soon to be announced genre greats.
While I’m not the biggest fan of crowd-funding when it comes to big studio-ish films (here’s looking at your Braff), people like Herschell are what helped define horror and a certain type of filmmaking as well, and if they are dipping their feet into the Indie Go-Go waters, then why not give the project a look?
