Blood Trilogy

Overview

Love 'em or hate 'em, Herschell Gordon Lewis and David F. Friedman made cinematic history with their pioneering trio of gory early-'60s horror films, Blood Feast 1963, Two Thousand Maniacs! 1964, and Color Me Blood Red 1965. As Lewis once put it, "Prior to Blood Feast...no one had made films in which people die with their eyes open, not shut. No one had made films in which blood and gristle show at the end." While that might seem like a slightly dubious claim to fame, there's no arguing the influence of these ...

Overview

Love 'em or hate 'em, Herschell Gordon Lewis and David F. Friedman made cinematic history with their pioneering trio of gory early-'60s horror films, Blood Feast 1963, Two Thousand Maniacs! 1964, and Color Me Blood Red 1965. As Lewis once put it, "Prior to Blood Feast...no one had made films in which people die with their eyes open, not shut. No one had made films in which blood and gristle show at the end." While that might seem like a slightly dubious claim to fame, there's no arguing the influence of these movies or how they continue to fascinate fringe cinema enthusiasts, and Something Weird Video has done the logical thing and packaged the "Blood Trilogy" together in one boxed set. The DVD versions of Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs!, and Color Me Blood Red included in the Blood Trilogy set are the same ones Something Weird has been marketing individually for several years. All three films have been transferred to disc in their original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and while the source materials show occasional speckling at the beginning and ends of reels, generally they look surprisingly good, with the colors vivid especially the all-important reds and the images sharp. The audio for the three features has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, with the original monophonic soundtracks spread over two channels; the sound is good enough to reveal the flaws in the original recordings mostly lots of echo and some occasional hum, but they're also as good as these pictures are ever going to sound. The dialogue for all three movie is in English and presented without subtitles or multiple language options, except for Two Thousand Maniacs!, which includes an optional dubbed French soundtrack doubtless owing to its popularity with horror enthusiasts in France and Belgium. The three films each feature an alternate commentary track, in which Something Weird founder Mike Vraney serves as moderator as Lewis and Friedman offer their entertaining memories of the making of these films. Other bonus materials include outtakes silent with musical accompaniment, the original trailers for the pictures, and a gallery of pressbook material and advertising artwork for Lewis and Friedman's pictures the same gallery appearing on all three discs. Fans who already have these three movies on DVD will have no need and no reason to pick up this set, but horror fans who've been waiting to pick these up on disc may well find the Blood Trilogy box is the way to go.
