H.G. LEWIS TALKS NEW FILMS

?Godfather of gore? Herschell Gordon Lewis gave Fango an update on the status of all the films he?s been involved with recently. As an actor, Lewis has appeared in two movies, HUNTING FOR HERSCHELL and CHAINSAW SALLY, both independent productions. ?I still don?t understand that project,? he says of HUNTING, about a pair of aspiring gore filmmakers who murder in homage to their idol (Lewis, playing himself). ?Nor do I understand why it seems to be sitting around, as though making a movie is parallel to distributing a movie. But the fellows who made it are bright, literate and pleasant. As the saying goes, it?s a puzzlement.?

As for SALLY, he seems to be impressed by the crew who made it, but was nonetheless surprised to be asked to take a role in it. ?Why they asked me to be in that, as an amiable hardware store proprietor, is another mystery. But certainly I can?t fault the professionalism I witnessed on their set,? he says. However, he had a blast on the set with fellow horror vet Gunnar ?Leatherface? Hansen. ?I had a great time with him,? Lewis raves. ?Quite a personable chap.?

As all gore fans know, 2001 MANIACS is coming from director Tim Sullivan and producer Eli Roth, so Fango couldn?t help asking Lewis how he feels about the whole thing. ?I haven?t seen 2001 MANIACS, and I?m not sure I want to,? he says. ?As the entire world is aware, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS! is my personal favorite, and no matter what they?ve accomplished, I feel some corruption.? Lewis recently sequelized himself with BLOOD FEAST 2, which will see a new and bigger special-edition DVD release this fall from Media Blasters, he?s on the verge of getting behind the camera again with GRIM FAIRY TALE. ?It?s about a TV show called TRUTH OR UH-OH!? he says. ?If the contestant gets the answer right, he or she wins prize after prize. But get it wrong? Uh-oh! Chris Tuffin is the producer, and it may go into production before this year is out. But in the film business, one learns to avoid predictions,? he jokes.

Lewis also confirms that we?ll hear him sing again soon (he composed the music for most of his movies, and also has a record out in which he sings songs from his films). ?Sure. Just set it up. It?ll be out soon.?
