Exhumed Films presents
The HG Lewis Gore-A-Thon!
Hosted by the “Godfather of Gore” himself, Herschel Gordon Lewis!
Writer/producer/director Herschel Gordon Lewis forever changed the face of genre cinema when he unleashed the gruesome 1963 horror comedy BLOOD FEAST, creating the first ever “gore” film. Over the next 10 years, HG Lewis directed some of the most iconic splatter movies of all time--including fan favorites such as 2000 MANIACS, COLOR ME BLOOD RED and THE WIZARD OF GORE—and earned himself the moniker “The Godfather of Gore,” inspiring a generation of independent filmmakers such as self-proclaimed Lewis fanatic John Waters. Exhumed Films is honored to present a retrospective of Mr. Lewis’s movies and to bring the seminal filmmaker to International House Philadelphia to speak about his long career in cinema. At 87 years old, Herschel Gordon Lewis is truly a living legend—please join us in celebrating his life and works by watching five of his craziest creations in the company of the master himself! Specific titles are still being curated, but you can count on seeing some of his most infamous shockers, along with some real rarities. There will also be autograph signings, Q & A sessions, an HG Lewis sing-along, and much more!
An event of this nature will probably never happen again; you CANNOT miss this true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Tickets are on sale now, so don’t delay!
