Product description

Product Description

EXCLUSIVE TO AMAZON.CO.UK

In 1963, director Herschell Gordon Lewis pulled a cow s tongue out of an actress mouth on camera, and in doing so, changed the landscape of horror cinema forever. That sequence was just one of numerous gruesome gags featured in Blood Feast, the film credited as being the world s first gore movie. It s no exaggeration to say that the modern gross-out movies of today owe their very existence to the pioneering efforts of H.G. Lewis.

But whilst Lewis is most widely celebrated for his blood-and-guts epics (Two Thousand Maniacs!, The Wizard of Gore et al.), there s more to the prolific director than splatter. From tales of sordid photographers (Scum of the Earth) to sex robots (How to Make a Doll), from biker girl-gangs (She-Devils on Wheels) to youths-run-amok (Just for the Hell of It), and from psychic witches (Something Weird) to hard liquor-loving hillbillies (Moonshine Mountain), the filmography of H.G. Lewis reads like a veritable wish-list of exploitation movie madness.

Now, for the first time ever, Arrow Video is proud to present fourteen of the Godfather of Gore s most essential films (including nine Blu-ray world debuts), collected together at last and packed full of eye-popping bonus content. So put your feet up, pour yourself a glass of good ol moonshine, and prepare yourself for a feast H.G. Lewis style!

    I am assuming, if you are interested in this set, that you already have most of these films in some version or another. So the question becomes, what do you gain by laying down your money for this product? Not only is there duplication of blu-ray/dvd -- elaborate permanent packaging for a temporary/transitional state of affairs vis-a-vis the slow phasing out of DVD by Blu-Ray -- but also, for all the "new" stuff included with this set, there is not one new audio commentary, and they've retained the commentary on 2000 Maniacs where Lewis draws your attention to Connie Mason's feet, which you cannot see because this "HD" widescreen transfer obliterates that portion of the frame. Ironically they're good enough to include "full frame" 1.33:1 versions of 5 films, but not of 2000 Maniacs. So you'll have to look elsewhere for Connie's weird stance which HG Lewis felt compelled to comment on.

    A HG Lewis fan who has all the Image and Something Weird DVDs has already heard and seen most of this stuff. It doesn't look or sound all that much better in Blu-Ray and really isn't the dingy character of these films part of their charm?

    The "extra features" vary from found video to little 10 minute features of people talking about HG Lewis. It's entry-level stuff and fans won't learn a great deal from it.

    But despite these complaints please look up and see that I rated the set "GOOD" because I imagine it could really lift the spirits of someone who has seen only Blood Feast or 2000 Maniacs and wants to see more of the maestro's product. Ultimately the 16:9 presentation may impress some viewers even though I find it annoying since all these films were shot in 1.33:1 and I believe they look better that way.

    A brilliant release by Arrow, giving both the well known and some of the more obscure films of Herschell Gordon Lewis the red carpet treatment.
    The packaging is stunning with great artwork and solid sturdy cardboard pages holding the discs. Ignore the small amount of moaners & pick this up while you still can!

    The Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast Box-set looks stunning, but like some reviews on amazon have already said, the inner casing could scratch the DVD's, now the Blu-rays are hard to scratch, but i would of preferred better protection.

    I have checked all the Films to see what the Blu-ray quality is like and to be honest its abit hit and miss. Some are very poor but Arrow do warn you before the film about the possible damage, ie lost frames, missing audio and grit and dirt that coudn't be removed, just like "Moonshine Mountain" and "The Gruesome Twosome" , but films like "The Gore Gore Girls" and "Color me Blood Red" look very good.

    All in all i like this Box-set even though its abit large and haven't got a clue where to put it in my collection, but i am just happy to have all films from Mr Herschell Gordon Lewis, who sadly died at the age of 90 this September. Great age.

    Great to have all these movies together in 1 set in honour of the late H G Lewis, but the packaging is oversized and far too gimmicky for my liking. The transfers are hit and miss, but i suppose they could only do what they could do with the master copies provided. These are old movies so some most likely suffered damage over the years. I would also much rather have a book with more info on H G Lewis himself and the movies than a kids activity book. The packaging is also way too big! I've actually got to pull out a shelf and raise it to fit this in.

    I agree with previous reviewers. This set is well worth the price. Another brilliant piece of work from Arrow. Fantastic presentation, lovely restorations and copious extras. Arrow are the leaders in the field and never short change their customers. This beautiful collection is a fitting and moving tribute to the maverick genius of the late, great H.G.L.

    All I can say about this is WOW !!! Arrow and Amazon UK have REALLY hit the jackpot with this release.Absolutely stunning box set.Get it now before they're gone,as I believe they're limited to only 2500 copies.Total value for money,and a must for any serious horror collection.

    I agree with the previous reviewer. Given the amount of work that appears to have gone into this box set, it seems somewhat churlish to criticise it, sight unseen, as a lack of value for money. Putting projects together like this is extremely expensive and the producers obviously need to recoup their costs at the very least. From the amount of material available in the set, I'd say it looks like a good deal and have awarded the five stars to attempt to address the rating imbalance created by the naysayers. Of course, a proper review and rating will follow when I actually have the set in my hands, and I would hope that the negative reviewers may be open to revising their opinions then also.
