Earlier today news broke out that Spanish genre filmmaker Juan Piquer(J.P.) Simon had passed away,for that brings forth another tragic loss in genre celebrity talent for 2011,for if anyone reading this is unfamiliar with this filmmaker may know that he made the much-celebrated(and extremely gory)PIECES(which is his best known film),as well as the likes of SLUGS(another extremely gory,and highly celebrated film),ENDLESS DESCENT(a.k.a.:THE RIFT),MYSTERY ON MONSTER ISLAND(which united Peter Cushing,Terence Stamp,and Paul Naschy),THE POD PEOPLE(a MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000 favorite),SUPERSONIC MAN,WHEN TIME BEGAN(a.k.a.:JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH),SATAN’S BLOOD,and CTHULHU MANSION(which almost starred Peter Cushing,but instead featured Frank Finley and Melanie Shatner[daughter of William]),and worked straight till the end of the 90s.
Whether his work has widely hailed or critically slammed,one has to admit that Simon had quite an impressive film resume and quite a list of actors(and actresses)that he worked with,for we’ll always have his many films to celebrate his memory by(and thoroughly enjoy[in repeat viewings]).
