One of the Godfathers of Gore has vanished off the face of this planet. We are extremely sad to report that Herschell Gordon Lewis has passed away at age 87.
During his time alive he delivered some of the most memorable splatter films ever created insuch as Blood Feast (1963), Two Thousand Maniacs! (1964), Something Weird, The Gruesome Twosome, and A Taste of Blood.
Although the cause of his death is currently unknown, Mr. Lewis will undoubtly missed by many horror hounds, especially ones who grew up during the early 60s. The last film he was involved in is called Zombificador, an old-fashioned anthology movie with five interconnecting stories, which is still in development.
R.I.P. H.G. Lewis!
