The It Came From Schenectady's 3rd annual 24-hour movie marathon. A cinema smorgasbord of the very best and worst of movies from SciFi, horror, fantasy and comedy.
Take an outrageous ride through a wild world of exploitation films with this fascinating documentary: Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore!
Featuring cult director John Waters, drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs, legendary David F. Friedman, Herschell himself, and testimony from the people who were actually there! You'll witness the innocent bare-naked era of Nudie Cuties, just before Lewis shocked the world with Blood Feast, the first ever gore film!
But that's not all! Lewis continued to assault audiences with such retro campy classics as Two Thousand Maniacs!, She Devils on Wheels, Blast-Off Girls, Just for the Hell of It, and the incredible The Wizard of Gore!
Experience a decade of motion picture madness - with tons of film clips, rare outtakes, and unintentional hilarity - Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore will leave you laughing and screaming at the most amazing movies to ever play American theatres!
Presented by Something Weird, the film is directed by Frank Henenlotter and Jimmy Maslon, produced by Mike Vraney and Jimmy Maslon and edited by Frank Henenlotter.
As with all ICFS movie events, prizes, surprises, special guests, and comfy couches will be part of the party... how long can you stay awake?
