Help Fund Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Zombificador!
I have long been a fan of Mr. Herschell Gordon Lewis! His film The Gore Gore Girls was the inspiration for my moniker and the man’s nickname is the Godfather Of Gore! How could I not love a director whose nickname is the Godfather of Gore? Mr. Lewis’ films Blood Feast and Two Thousand Maniacs made my top ten lists for 1963 and 1964 respectively. I am also particularly fond of Something Weird (1967), Scum of the Earth (1963), She-Devils on Wheels (1968), Wizard of Gore (1970) and Blood Feast 2: All You Can Eat (2002)! Needless to say, I was beside myself with excitement when I learned Lewis was working on a new film! Zombificador is an anthology of five stories featuring among other oddities mutant insects, talking puppets, psychos and monsters. Actors Bill Moseley and Michael Berryman are already lined up for roles! Most of my favourite directors have already shuffled off this mortal coil. It is a big deal to me when a director I love releases a new film; especially when I can help fund it! Lewis is running a crowd-funding campaign for Zombificador! Yep! You can help fund the Godfather of Gore‘s next film! I contributed and received a 2000 Maniacs perk! The perk comes with a private link to see a rough cut of the film before anybody else and a DVD of my favourite Herschell Gordon Lewis movie and more! I am genuinely thrilled to have a chance to help one of my favourite directors get his film made! Mr. Lewis has given me countless hours of entertainment! You can read about the production plan and other details by going to Indiegogo and checking out the funding page here. I am excited and frankly honored that I helped fund a H.G. Lewis film…I can now die happy!
