If you are a fan of horror, you no doubt know the name Herschell Gordon Lewis. He is nicknamed "The Godfather of Gore" as he first brought gore to the mainstream with the films now known as his "Blood Trilogy", BLOOD FEAST (1963), TWO THOUSAND MANIACS (1964) and COLOR ME BLOOD RED (1965). His latest film was 2009's THE UH-OH SHOW. I am glad to see Mr. Lewis coming back with a new project so soon! His last feature before THE UH-OH SHOW was in 2002 (BLOOD FEAST 2), but before that film, his last feature was THE GORE GORE GIRLS back in 1972!!
Well Mr. Lewis is coming back with the just announced ZOMBIFICADOR! I am not really sure what that title means, but here is the synopsis from the official press release:
ZOMBIFICADOR is an old-style anthology movie, with several stories that interconnect with each other in some point. From big fat monsters with the ability of transforming people into savage creatures, to human-sized mutant bugs, along with talking puppets and silent psycho killers, that’s what ZOMBIFICADOR is all about. With five (5) different stories, ZOMBIFICADOR will be the goriest and grossest movie ever made by Herschell Gordon Lewis! In a comeback to his classic gore films, we are proud to present you with the wildest movie ever made by the “Godfather of Gore,” the most important horror filmmaker and the inventor of Gore and Splatter.
In order to get the movie funded, the production company, Mugworth Productions, has started an indigogo campaign in order to raise funds for the film.
Here is a little more info about the Indigogo campaign from the press release:
A crowdfunding campaign is currently underway through Indiegogo. This is an attempt to raise the $100,000 necessary to keep this production entirely free of studio interference, making it truly independent. It will run until July 7th 2013, with initial filming scheduled for the fourth quarter of the year. As a contributor, you are entitled to these great perks: exclusive signed and personalised memorabilia are being offered to funders, in addition to cameo roles and executive producer credits on the movie.
Please help support this awesome new film from a true living legend of horror!!
