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!

This is a celebration of a great man, a fantastic, unusual, unique box set, yes, like some others, i already have most stuff, not all, but most on Tartan DVD, so what??
This is the ULTIMATE collection, this is a MUST buy if you are a fan of Herschell Gordon Lewis.
Arrow have done the great man proud, what are you waiting for???!!!
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.Read more ›
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!
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.
