GoreTrilogy

Alfred Hitchcock created the recipe with the shower scene in Psycho; Herschell Gordon Lewis copied; more masters of gore followed. Blood Feast, Two Thousand Maniacs! and Color Me Blood Red form the Lewis’ “Blood Trilogy.” Two  Playboy playmates (Connie Mason and Ashlyn Martin) provided the titillation in the Miami movie – Blood Feast. Mason returned for the St. Cloud — Two Thousand Maniacs! Lewis didn’t score any playmates for his Sarasota movie, Color Me Blood Red, but he still found quality bodies to paint red.

I mentioned Allison Louise Downe, in another post; she wrote Blood Feast. I suspect I will have some Bunny references in this chapter, I’m working on. The Ishtar and the human sacrifice theme, in Blood Feat, goes well with this chapter.
