Blood Feast ★ Feast of Flesh 1963

The first of Lewis' gore-fests, in which a demented caterer butchers hapless young women to splice them together in order to bring back an Egyptian goddess. Dated, campy, and gross; reportedly shot in four days (it shows). 70m/C VHS, DVD . Connie Mason, William Kerwin, Mal Arnold, Scott H. Hall, Lyn Bolton, Toni Calvert, Gene Courtier, Ashlyn Martin, Jerome (Jerry Stallion) Eden, David Friedman; D: Herschell Gordon Lewis; W: Allison Louise Downe; C: Herschell Gordon Lewis; M: Herschell Gordon Lewis.
