The Wizard Of Gore (1970) Herschell Gordon Lewis Sadistic Classic Grand Guignol

When video stores first came out I was sweatin’ the box for this film

The Trailer

A TV talk-show hostess and her boyfriend investigate a shady magician whom has the ability to hypnotize and control the thoughts of people in order to stage gory on-stage illusions using his powers of mind bending.

A magician performs a show where he selects a female volunteer and appears to put swords, drills, and such through them. They walk away and everyone applauds, then they show up somewhere else, dead of the same injuries they sustained in the magic show. Police are baffled and can’t tie the murders to the magician. A man whose girlfriend is infatuated with the show begins to investigate on his own.

-IMDb

The film is about a magician called Montag the Magnificent (Ray Sager) who delivers hectoring speeches about the nature of reality to his audience and then performs mutilation tricks on female “volunteers”. The women appear unharmed immediately afterward but later collapse, dead, in public or at home–mutilated in the same grisly fashion suggested by Montag’s stage tricks (cut in half with a chainsaw, drilled through with a punch press, etc.). Audience member Sherry Carson (Judy Cler), a local TV talk show host, and her boyfriend Jack (Wayne Ratay) begin to suspect that Montag is somehow involved in the murders. He and fellow reporter Greg (Phil Laurenson) attempt to research the case but are unable to come up with any solid evidence.

Wikipedia

The film is cited as one of the most influential “gore porn” movies in cinematic history.

Herschell Gordon Lewis (born 15 June 1929, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.) is an American filmmaker, best known for creating the “splatter film” subgenre of horror. He is often called the “Godfather of Gore” (a title also given to Italian director Lucio Fulci) though his film career included works in a range of exploitation film genres including juvenile delinquent films, nudie-cuties, two children’s films and at least one rural comedy.

Wizards (1977) Ralph Bakshi Bites Vaughn Bode

Wizards is a 1977 American animated post-apocalyptic science fiction/fantasy film about the battle between two wizards, one representing the forces of magic and one representing the forces of technology. It was written, produced, and directed by Ralph Bakshi. This is 20th Century Fox’s first animated film.” –Wikipedia

“In a post apocalyptic future that appears as a blend of World War II Europe and J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Middle-earth, a pint-size wizard named Avatar must save the world from a band of fascist mutants controlled by his evil twin brother, Blackwolf, who likes to confuse enemy armies by projecting films of Adolf Hitler speeches during attacks. Painted live-action footage of advancing Nazi armies contrasts with Saturday-morning-cartoon-style animation of fairies and elves as Avatar travels through various magical and radioactive realms on his quest. Aiding him are a sexually promiscuous fairy queen, a hot-blooded warrior elf and Peace, a misunderstood robot rebelling against his Blackwolf-controlled programming. A bizarre and psychedelic meditation on magic vs. technology, this ultimate futuristic fantastic epic cult film still finds an audience on college campuses and will prove quite rewarding to viewers in the right frame of mind.” –IMDb
