Critic Reviews for Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

There are myriad reasons why the term "torture porn" never made sense and one of the most important is the irrevocable impact Herschell Gordon Lewis's schlocky gore cinema had on American movies.

This entertaining portrait of the legendary exploitation filmmaker is probably more fun than actually watching his films.

March 10, 2011 | Full Review…

It would be naive not to expect bad taste in a movie about bad taste.

September 2, 2011 | Rating: 3/5

Initially enjoyable, the doc grows overindulgent of its subject.

September 2, 2011 | Rating: 2/5

Crammed with clips, behind-the-scenes footage and other archival material, this documentary love letter to pioneering exploitation filmmaker Herschell Gordon Lewis is aimed squarely at fans of his boundary-testing gore and nudie movies.
