H.G. Lewis restoration project on Kickstart
I figured maybe this would be of interest to some. I plan on donating something, just not sure how that all works.
The Lost Films Of Herschell Gordon Lewis - FOUND!
R!S!P! wants to help spread the word about this pretty awesome project, full details of which can be found here.
"Through a combination of luck, happenstance and a lot of negotiating, we've acquired the negatives for acclaimed cult filmmaker Herschel Gordon Lewis' three lost sexploitation pictures, LINDA & ABILENE (1969), ECSTASIES OF WOMEN (1969) and BLACK LOVE (1971) and are seeking funds to properly restore and preserve them and, ultimately, allow the public to appreciate them for decades to come."
So yeah, these not seen since their theatrical release trio of HGL movies, long thought lost, have been found and are in the process of being restored. I know not everyone does the kickstarter thing BUT this time around, it's not much different than pre-ordering a disc - check out the rewards system in place:

You pledge a certain amount, and then you basically commit to it with your amazon account. If the goal is reached, your account is billed...if it isn't, you aren't billed.
I'll be making my contribution next week.
Smut is good.
Cool man, thanks. I didn't see you had it up already.
I've always got it up, Todd.
And I'm gonna make this thread sticky for a while.
I just put in what I could.
Nice to see this is over 1/3 of the way there. They dug up some trailers and are working on some extras too. Good stuff!
Just bumped up my pledge.
