oct 1, 1968 - Splatter Films

Description:

Popularized by the release of George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" in 1968, the Splatter Film subgenre typically involves graphic portrayals of gore and violence. Heavily censored by a government that had previously not dealt with simulated violence of such a scale, the subgenre was extremely popular nonetheless, with film-makers such as Herschell Gordon Lewis building entire careers around Splatter Films. Some films in the genre include "Blood Feast", "The Gruesome Twosome", "The Wizard of Gore", and "Psycho".
