The Inheritance

Visually slick, even when it’s unimaginative


Horror

Rod Lott
When Image Entertainment splashes its “UNRATED” label across its covers — as it has of late with “Chain Letter,” “Harpoon: Whale Watching Massacre” and now “The Inheritance” — you can at least be guaranteed that the films will make good on that promise, even if they fall short in other areas.

The Blood Trilogy

Let it bleed, in high-def.


Horror

Rod Lott
While Herschell Gordon Lewis has made a fortune in the advertising business, it's his earlier career as a drive-in filmmaker that fuels his still-going legacy. He's still kicking — 2010's gruesome game-show parody "The Uh-Oh Show" is his latest, while several of his movies have been remade — and Something Weird Video and Image Entertainment have released a new documentary about him, "Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore.” But more importantly, they’ve unleashed arguably his most notorious works on Blu-ray.

Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore

Thanks for the dismemberies!


Documentary

Rod Lott
Released in conjunction with "The Blood Trilogy" Blu-ray from Something Weird Video and Image Entertainment is their companion DVD documentary, "Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore." Helmed by the great Frank Henenlotter ("Frankenhooker," "Basket Case"), the feature-length doc is longer than any one entry in that trilogy, which is comprised of "Blood Feast," "Two Thousand Maniacs!" and "Color Me Blood Red."
