I’m honored to have written a part of The Godfather of Gore’s final film! Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BLOODMANIA has been picked up for distribution and will be available this Spring!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Herschell Gordon Lewis’ final film to be distributed by Monarch Films Inc.
Diabolique Films, and HGB Entertainment Ltd, are pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Monarch Films Inc. for their horror anthology, “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania.”
“Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania” is the final film by legendary horror director Lewis, affectionately known as the “Godfather of Gore”, who passed away in late 2016, after a career in film spanning over fifty years.
“I am very excited to add Mr. Lewis’ final film to the quality package of new films we will be premiering at MIP 2017. We have already heard from many of our key TV and DVD buyers worldwide expressing their interest in licensing “BloodMania” for their territories. We will be making “BloodMania” available to horror fans worldwide via Amazon Prime and dozens of additional VOD, PPV, and streaming platforms later this spring”.
President, Monarch Films
Diabolique Films and HGB Entertainment Vice President and Producer James Saito says, “It is extremely gratifying to work with Monarch Films to bring Herschell’s final film to his loyal international fan base, and to introduce his work to a whole new generation of horror fans.”
The horror anthology film consists of four tales – each representing a different genre of classic horror cinema. Lewis himself described the film as, “… a perfect combination of horror and comedy”.
Mr. Lewis wrote and directed two segments. The other two were directed by Melanie Reinboldt and Kevin Littlelight. The anthology stars Roger LeBlanc, Stuart Bentley, Sonia Deleo and Caroline Buzanko.
A release date for “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania” will be announced shortly.
“All of my movies can be traced back to the work of H.G. Lewis” – Eli Roth (Director of “Cabin Fever”, “Hostel”, “The Green Inferno”)
“A new film from Herschell Gordon Lewis is a treat for all horror fans!” – Tom Holland (Director of “Fright Night”, “Child’s Play”)
In case you were unaware, my co-conspirator John Hageman (artist on The Woodland Welfare Manifesto) and I have been putting together a comic book entitled CHARLEY & HUMPHREY, based on the television characters created by Pat McCormick!
These two rascals – a cantankerous horse and his sweetly naive, but well-meaning, bulldog sidekick, were staples of Bay Area TV for decades, before retiring some 30-odd years ago. With Pat’s blessing, it is our privilege to reintroduce these beloved icons back to the world in CHARLEY & HUMPHREY – illustrated by John Hageman and written by myself!
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come in Issue #1!
Hey, guess who’s gonna be at the Alternative Press Expo at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California on October 8th and 9th? That’s right, ME! I’ll be sitting with all the other fantastic artists at SLG Publishing’s table, selling my wares and taking pictures with everyone who thinks I’m a cosplay! Come on out and see all the best in indie and alternative comics (or “comix”, if you’re edgy, which I am.) Check it out at alternativepressexpo.com
A year or so ago, I started making comics for a series I called “Grim Reality”. I’ll probably continue to do them as gags come to me, but for now here are a couple for your amusement. I will probably change the name, as there have been a couple of comics made since I started it that share the title – but until then, enjoy these under their original heading!
Here it is, the official theatrical poster for the horror anthology I wrote one segment of, Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BLOODMANIA! I can’t tell you how exciting it is to have something I wrote directed by the Godfather of Gore himself! For more on the project, go to www.bloodmania.ca!
