Exploitation Film Pioneer, Producer of Blood Feast David F. Friedman Dies at 87

"Producer David F. Friedman, who many say created the splatter film when he collaborated with director Herschell Gordon Lewis on the 1963 film Blood Feast, has passed away at 87 from heart failure. Blood Feast had a thin plot involving a murderous Egyptian caterer who decapitates women (usually naked ones) and contained copious nudity, buckets of blood and not much else. From what I recall, it didnít even contain sound effects during the murder scenes, besides dubbed screaming. He went on to produce cult classics like Ilsa: She-Wolf of the S.S., and the clever, often hilarious gore film Two Thousand Maniacs!"

I can say after meeting him a couple years ago that he was a fascinating man to listen to and will be missed.

So sad to have lost Tura and Col. Dave so close to the Drive-in challenge.
