Subject: 'Godfather of gore' Herschell Gordon Lewis dies aged 87

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/27/16 at 7:49 am

Herschell Gordon Lewis, the horror filmmaker known as the "godfather of gore", has died at the age of 87.
He directed films such as Blood Feast, The Gruesome Twosome and Two Thousand Maniacs.
Gordon Lewis died in his sleep at his home in Pompano Beach, Florida, his spokesman James Saito confirmed.
The director pioneered the horror genre in the 1960s known as the "splatter film," which intentionally focused on gore and gruesomeness.
Blood, violence and nudity usually featured heavily in his films - many of which he financed himself.
Other horror films directed by Gordon Lewis included A Taste of Blood, The Wizard of Gore, Colour Me Blood Red and Just for the Hell of It.
