Four Recent Passings

As the weeks have slwoly moved by,with myself basically taking it easy doing nothing and spending lots of time buying and viewing Blu Rays,four noteworthy figures in the media have recently passed away and moved onward to the big blue sky…

* Bill Hinzman: the first zombie that’s seen in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD also appeared in many Pittsburgh indie films which included the likes of THE BOOBY TRAP, THE MAJORETTES,and his solo directing debut FLESHEATER(a.k.a: REVENGE OF THE LIVING DEAD),and was a regular celebrity fixture on the Mideast and East Coast convention circuit.

* Whitney Houston: the singer,the Diva,and the actress(THE BODYGUARD,LEARNING IN EXHALE,and the upcoming SPARKLE)who had a long associated problem with drugs,was Mrs. Bobby Brown for a while,and was found drwoned in a bathtub(of what’s said to have been a possible presciption drug overdose).

* John Severin: the longtime comics artist who worked with EC and Marvel comics,was one of the fouding artists of Mad magazine,and worked for Cracked magazine(the Mad clone/rip-off/knock-off/spin-off) for 45 years.

* Fred Adelman: aside Sleazoid Express’ Bill Landis and Gore Gazette’s Rick Sullivan,Fred was also one of the pioneering DIY zine guys with his longtime running Critical Condition,which started as a long running zine that later was one of the first zines that made the switch to the Internet. Fred had a longtime struggle with leukemia and was known on the ‘Net for his numerous on-line feuds with various folks,but was still a hella nice,outgoing,and friendly fellow and was one of the few trustyworthy and reliable film critics on the planet.

That’s all the time for now…

I'm just a simple genre cinema fan(NOT a fanboy and NOT a geek)who widely glimpses onto the latest in cinema news,cinema events,and world news of the day events,and just to warn you(especially if you're one of those politically correct elitists,or strongly despise folks that never brownnose the genre cinema media press):I do sharply bite.
