Mr. Schell Gordon Lewis was often „Godfather of Gore“ called and he turned the first splatter film history. Now the US filmmaker is aged 87 Years died. The director of films „Blood Feast“ and „Two Thousand Maniacs!“ died at his home in Pompano Beach, Florida, his spokesman said James Saito.
H.G.Lewis had with his Blood Trilogy (Blood Feast (1963), 2000 Maniacs! (1964) und Color Me Blood Red (1965)) invented the splatter / gore subgenre early 60s. For his first film „The Prime Time“ (1959) Lewis worked as a producer. Then he began, to work as a director. With „Blood Feast“ he turned the first splatter film in history. His films, which originated with low production costs, turned to blood, Violence and nudity. With Blood Feast Lewis attacked the high culture of the cinema at; his film, where an Egyptian caterer Women kill, them for obscure rituals Eating to process, made at the time, almost without exception for outrage. With Herschell Gordon Lewis gentility was over.
Already in the Trailer to „Blood Feast“ the audience was warned: Who devices easily from the socket or have heart problems, Let now the hall leave; for Children and pregnant women should, which can be seen now, not suitable. A bumbling affront to the fine spirit was the, in every way an amateur work, to say nothing of the writer quite. Probably all true, but it paved the way for a bubbly before productivity grindhouse scene, without which there would not be someone like Quentin Tarantino today. In H.G.Lewis film it went to the point, not only injected the glowing red fake blood on the canvas, also were fortified- and unsuspecting victims - mostly boy, pretty, mostly scantily clad women - of a certain Fuad Ramses, the owner of a small Egyptian catering services, except downright with a long butcher knife. Everything was to be seen and the injury and dismemberment of the human body is no longer a taboo in the film.
The 1929 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-born director was aware of the disturbing effect of the violence and he put them, that was his actual discovery, their Schauwertes because a. Only it came to him, moral doubts about his actions he had not. came to film the trained journalist was rather quiet. After graduation, he taught English literature at the Mississippi State University, but bored quickly with his students, he began to work for radio and television and turned finally some erotic- and softcore movies. He understood, that with low production costs, but huge display values good money was. He finally came to the explicit, certain extent pornografisierten violence of all-show.
On „Blood Feast“ followed other violent excesses, „Scum of the Earth!“ (1963), „A Taste of Blood“ (1966), „The Gruesome Twosome“ (1967), „She-Devils on Wheels“ (1968) and „The Wizard of Gore“ (1970). In the 70s, Lewis worked in the advertising industry, not until the new millennium he turned to filmmaking and turned „Blood Feast 2“ (2002) as well as „The Uh-Oh Show“ (2009). The horror comedy „BloodMania“, where he last worked, could he not unfortunately finish. Although Lewis arrived with its splatter orgies never in mainstream cinema, he influenced but a number of important directors, most notably John Waters, Roberto Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino and James Gunn. Take care, Herschell – and thank you for the massive blood!
Hagen Liebing, former bassist of the punk rock group „The doctors“ ist tot. He died suddenly today Sunday at the age of 55 Years after a short, but serious illness, like the Berlin city magazine tip on its Facebook-announced Page: „The news came at the end for us not surprising and yet we are very sad“.
Hagen Liebing was 1961 born in Berlin and grew 1986 and remained until its interim resolution at the doctors 1988 in the band. When the doctors themselves 1993 reunited, The Incredible Hagen was no longer there. About his time with the doctors he published 2003 his book „The Incredible Hagen – My years with ‚The doctors'“. Early 90s worked first studied media studies as a music journalist for the „Tagesspiegel“, later he moved to „tip“. In addition Liebing headed temporarily publicity of the sports club Tennis Borussia Berlin.
Hagen joined 1986 to the doctors, as Bela B. phoned him and asked, if he wanted to be a pop star. The first joint Concert was a benefit concert for „the true Heino“ Tempodrom in Berlin. It was the first big time of doctors, when the band was on the one hand on the way into the charts, On the other hand, with its deliberately provocative songs always again got into trouble with the authorities. An official scandal band. Unlike Rodrigo González and Hans „Sahni“ Runge he was employee bassist and not a member in the strict sense, therefore was at any doctors-CD, when he participated, the memo „featuring The incredible Hagen“ find. Farin and Bela had tried him in joining the choice, either to be hired, what a hard job meant or completely enter, what profit sharing, would have meant but also of the thoughtfulness of losses of the band. As Hagen at that time was still studying, he opted for the appointing. He was brought into the band, because Farin and Bela after Sahnie in Hagen a peaceful people found. Annual 1988 detached themselves doctors, and each went his own way. On spOnline he had written a few years ago about:
Eventually we decided, to play our very last concert in Westerland. In Kursaal. Because there is only about 1.500 purely fit people, we wanted to play two concerts, but that has not been approved. The city had administrative Fear, that there is a „Punkerinvasion“ would. This happened of course still. Because it was the last concert, came many friends and companions to the island. Rocko Schamoni and the Golden Lemons, Rod Gonzales, of now in the „doctors“ is my successor on bass, Lanrue of One Ton. Moreover Tour people came, Crew members, Roadies, old friends from the Berlin punk environment and a lot of fans, who are always behind us traveled. With which we then made the afternoon the beach chairs uncertain.
In the evening it was finally time. We sat backstage shortly before the performance. January has made singing exercises. I do not. For me it was fruitless, and Dirk also has not made. Then we went on stage like any other concert.
We went up, It was dark and had as all their instruments, it went off with a thump – light on, Music from! From there it was practically only a single roar of the fans. Below were the normal concertgoers, our friends were up on a gallery, once went around. It has been seen from the stage each. All people, I knew, I had constantly in view. And than all looked so agitated, there was an already clear, that this was just not a normal concert. Each of these unique situation was really aware: This is now really the last concert.
Funny it was of course still. A „Doctors“-Concert is always funny. But that was as sweet and sour – had downed both. Eventually we were through with our standard set. It was only then we realized, that we no longer wanted to quit. We played the additions … and then even more additions. Eventually we realized: Mist, now should really be an end – and then we played more encores. It really went very, very long. At the end we bowed, said goodbye to the people. Then we went off the stage. From band ran music, the Jan had specially taken. I can not remember, what it was the beginning of the concert. But was at the end „Not, I regret nothing“ by Edith Piaf.
During his time as a bassist and as a background singer at the doctors he studied Media Studies. With the founding of the band 1993 he was no longer there, however,. But when even after its end „The doctors“ played music in the lives of bassists a major role. He worked as a journalist, first in the musical department of the Tagesspiegel and later for the Berlin magazine Tip. 2003 he published his book „The Incredible Hagen - My Years with ‚The doctors'“. Hagen lived with the music boss of Radio Eins, Anja Caspary and their two Children together. For me the incredible Hagen lives on, Hagen himself of course has no clue about, he is dead. Hagen is simply no longer on demselbem timeline as we, as a photon, which can traverse the whole universe in proper time zero. Bon Voyage Hagen, mach’s gut. Rock on!
Imagine, one has just died, and finds himself in a white room again, sitting opposite someone, the one minute long answer all questions, come to mind straight. And that's not only funny and interesting, but ultimately also quite surprising. Many good stories end's often at least a bit surprising and it's not just in this short film so, but hopefully in your own story…

Two powerful arguments, a rampant Beard, piercing gaze, tiefes Grummeln – so easy: Bud Spencer. The films of Carlo Pedersoli, as Spencer was called real name, running up and down on TV and his sayings are classic canvas Story. He was Olympics-Float, Western Hero and famous for his fists, now is the cinema legend Bud Spencer aged 86 Years died. This was confirmed by his son Giuseppe Pedersoli: „He has not suffered, He had us all with him, and his last word was thanks“, said Pedersoli the Italian news agency Ansa According.
Children wished for his strength, Men dreamed of his cheeky gab and hockey players vied unsuccessfully his wild beard by. The popularity of the Italian actor is still unbroken. Bud Spencer had an eventful life, the lot was more than uppercut, Cinema and slapstick. Actor, Jurist, entrepreneur, power float, music producer, Inventors – all this would have in one way or another, the authorization, to stand on his business card. With Terence Hill Bud Spencer is due to its countless „Haudrauf-Movie“ remembered. The bearded man with small, compressed eyes was the so-called „Spaghetti-Western“ world-renowned. With the two-handed double slap and the vertical blow with his fist on the head, he taught his opponents fear.
Carlo Pedersoli, who was born in Naples, skipped school two classes. With 16 He studied chemistry, but had to stop, because the family emigrated to South America. Only after Brazil, then to Argentina. There he worked as production line workers, Secretary and librarian. When he returned to Rome, studied Pedersoli Jura and went back to South America, this time to Venezuela, to work as an Alfa Romeo Manager. Already in the fifties he was extremely successful. He took 1952 in Helsinki and 1956 part in Melbourne at the Olympic Games. A little later the massive Italians told the competitive sports „Ciao“ and focused on his acting career as a „Bud Spencer“. His father Giuseppe Amato, who earned his living as a film producer, then brought him to the show business in Contact. His nickname he put to himself, because he not be named as a swimming champion „ruin“ wanted. „Spencer, because Spencer Tracy was my favorite actor. And Bud, yeah, as the beer Bud“, explains the Colossus few years ago.
The audience liked the float as an actor. Films with titles like „Trinity Is Still My Name“, „All the Way, Boys“ or „A Friend Is a Treasure“ filled the cinemas. But swimmer and actor was only one side of Bud Spencer. The Italian was also also a lawyer, entrepreneur, music producer, Inventors, Rugby player, Water Polo National Team and womanizer. At least, before he 1960 Maria Amato married. „Did you actually ever one drawn with a sledgehammer an apex?“ Diplomacy has in "“Double Trouble Rio“ nobody learned. Instead fly in beautiful regularity fists. But with modern action heroes like Bruce Willis or Arnold Schwarzenegger Bud Spencer have nothing in common. No blood. No bombastic explosions. Simply fist on the nose. However, the staged so perfectly, that despite 1,92 Meters size and 150 recalls kilos fighting weight of Ballet.
From a brawl, of course always against a variety of opponents, formed the bearded colossus a painting, accompanied by „Boing“ and „Batsch“. These songs with catchy potential, „Flying Through The Air“ repeated as the refrain of „All the Way, Boys“ as „Dune Buggy“ in „Two thick as thieves“. A Internet-Hit is also the legendary appearance of Bud Spencer in the choir, when he was in the classics „Lalalalala“ a „least“ installs and tightens the wrath of conductors. but particularly lifelike came especially the soundtrack of meals: „Rülps. Everything out what pays no rent.“ By the way „Rülps“, there may even Joko and Klaas pack: Hardly a Duo be perfectly matched with each other as the stubborn Bud Spencer and Terence Hill smart on the screen. Nine films revolved Bud Spencer and Terence Hill in common, the name has become a synonym of Schalk and bravado.
apply Much as some decent slaps as hallmarks of Bud Spencer – he rarely beats because of the beatings. Sometimes he puts crooks craft, times he rebels against money horny estate sharks, always it's good versus evil. Selber always short of money and painfully through life battling it shows especially in front of busybodies and officials no respect. In his films, his good-natured heart often heard the simple worker, a position, Carlo Pedersoli was all too familiar. While other idols as „Baywatch“-Lifeguard David Hasselhoff nowadays have drunk eat from the floor and Burger successfully ruined their reputation, fascinated Bud Spencer still a hero. he has clearly recognized in his autobiography The limits of his skills on camera: „I'm not an actor, I'm a character.“ This is what makes the character so Bud Spencer unmatched. He reflected all sorts of hopes and dreams, but above all he was authentic and a genre was so created.
In the 80 years I have, like everyone else, absorbed every film with Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill. I've seen all the, Trinity Is Still My Name, the flatfoot movies, They called him Mücke, The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid, Buddy haut den Lukas, Banana Joe, Hector, were called The bomber and how they all. Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill were a bank, a machine, every year like clockwork, a new comedy for us Kids get haute and where they decomposed reliably every device and verkloppten gangsters and cops. I had not ever seen the movies, they have over the years and growing cinematic bandwidth even more under „Crap I watched as a Kid“ recorded and the last two years'm come back to taste, once again what was on the box.
Now Carlo is „Bud Spencer“ Pedersoli aged 86 Years died. „He has not suffered, he had us all with him and his last word „Thank you“, said his son Giuseppe Pedersoli the Italian news agency Ansa According. „With our deepest sympathy we have to inform, that Bud flies to his next trip“, informed his family on his Facebook-Seite with. Rest in peace. In my childhood / youth had been missing without your movies something. To hilariously were your movies along with your congenial fellow actor Terence Hill, who allowed me laugh and my family to tears. You can keep this memory forever awake. I thank you. With you is a piece of my childhood. Hello great. You're a legend. Thank you so much. Fuck this year! I make today a Bud Spencer Marathon…
I know the work of Manfred Deix mainly from the U-Comix and the Titanic, his grotesque figures with bloodshot bulging eyes and drooling eyes you do not forget so quickly. His caricatures inflated politicians, psychophatischer Nazis and the horny priests formed the reality probably better, as each photo. His nonexistent work ethic and his anti-career lust then made him finally admirable. He has to ugliness Art made. And his pen was not pointed, she was a thorn. Manfred Deix revealed in his caricatures on our wittiest of all hypocrisy.
Now the Austrian draftsman and caricaturist Manfred Deix is on Saturday at the age of 67 Years died, as the director of Cartoon Museum Krems, Gottfried Gusenbauer, at the Monday the Austrian news agency APA confirmed. Here are some obituaries at Standard, Courier and Salzburger Nachrichten. Goodnite, Manfred. From an interview with Freizeit.at:
Marietta total over Manfred's lack of ambition: ‚He never tried seriously to something.‘ […]
An important Comic-Festival with all representatives of the Frankfurt School. Deix guest of honor. When he comes? Ich case: He will recall. Stimmklirren: ,What's the name of, call back? The festival begins in half an hour. 'I've net g'wusst, where he is. Just be sure net in Lucerne. "Or much of the NDR: You have the studio equipped with larger than life characters Deix. sent an air ticket. Where is he? He has in the mask! The mission took place without Deix. The art director of the mirror wanted to pick a cover. Beppo Votzi profil-Cartoon hat den urgiert. Of course, you know, I lie to, when I say, Manfred is sick. But i konnt net present, that I g'sehen him for a week never. Sure, I want to get out often, But what do I do with all the cats?
Das Design Studio Estudimoline from Barcelona, developed with the „Bios Urn“ a completely biodegradable urn, which you after death into a tree of your choice - Maple, Kiefer, Gingko, Beech or oak, transformed. How it works? The urn containing the desired seed, which is set later than the capsule on the ashes. Over time you will be so taken up again in the cycle of nature. Actually a nice idea if you consider, be that graves eh vacated after the prescribed rest period or reassigned. I would also prefer $145 invest and as a magnificent oak „born-again“ will. So you could also turn all the cemeteries in forests, what an idea!
