The Godfather of Gore is back with an offer we can’t refuse.
After six long years since 2009’s “The Uh-Oh Show,” director Herschell Gordon Lewis will be giving us what is being billed as “a new horror anthology” and we couldn’t be more excited.
BloodMania doesn’t give us many clues as to what the plot is other than it revolving around an all-girl rock band, murder (of course) and apparently “the worst day of Brewster Bricabrac’s life.”
Seeing as Bricabrac (who we can assume is the film’s main protagonist) gets run over by a steamroller and has one of his eyes gouged out it has to be.
Other than copious amounts of gore set to Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”, there is some kind of demon/poltergeist lurking about and a disgusting old man who’s severed head winds up in an air vent. There’s also two women making out in a shower (which we can safely assume will die during the feature) and a pretty hilarious interaction between two homeless men (because why not?).
From the man who brought us such classics as “The Wizard of Gore,” “The Gore Girls” and “Blood Feast,” “BloodMania” looks to be a fit for every gore fan. While it won’t be up for an Oscar or mentioned in the same sentence as “Titanic” or “Good Will Hunting,” “BloodMania” will certainly cater to the niche audience that Lewis intended it for.
