I bought this original 1967 one-sheet for Herschell Gordon Lewis' "The Gruesome Twosome" at Wuxtry Records in Birmingham, Alabama, in the 1980s. I got it for only a few bucks, not because the owner of the shop didn't know what he had, but because he was a really cool guy that was happy to pass on a good deal when one came his way.
Anyway, Herschell Gordon Lewis made numerous gore films for drive-ins in the 1960s, and he has become, along with Russ Meyer and a few others, one of the most notorious cult filmmakers of the 1960s. His most famous film is Blood Feast.
This film has something to offend just about everyone as you can see by the IMDB synopsis below:
"A demented, elderly woman has her mentally retarded son kill and scalp various young women to use their hair for her wig shop while a persistent coed tries to link various killings on a local Florida college campus to them."
