These 5 films by the Godfather of Gore are my favorites, so they're not in any particular order. If you're not familiar with Herschell Gordon Lewis, or his films, I highly suggest these films. They're very gory and sleazy, so if seeing women getting dismembered with a chainsaw, or naked, isn't your thing... Don't watch 'em... prude.
