MOONSHINE MOUNTAIN

Herschell Gordon Lewis, USA, 1964, Arrow Films, Cult

“Th' ferst of HG Lewis' likker epics is chock fulla geetar pickin', folk singin', square dancin', an’ a lil' lite gore!”
-- Evan, LETTERBOXD

The first film made by H.G. Lewis (BLOOD FEAST) after splitting with partner David F. Friedman, MOONSHINE MOUNTAIN was shot in the wilds of South Carolina. But what was supposed to be a family-friendly comedy ("A Rip-Roarin’ Screenload of Cornball Action and Excitement!") actually comes off as something far more sinister than Lewis’ infamous redneck classick, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS. A country-western singer heads back home to the hills of Carolina where he’s caught up in a feud between some homeboy moonshiners and “the Revenoores.” But of course, it wouldn’t be an H.G. Lewis movie without a psycopathic killer on the loose!
