As I was preparing to write my Halloween Viewings 2012 blog entry,another passing of yet another cinematic figure has happened,with the latest well-known figure being veteran cinematographer/directgor Mac Alhberg.
Born in Stockholm,Sweden,Mac began his career in the 50s as an assistant director,but later graduated to becoming a director via his successful mid 60s erotic film I,A WOMAN,which(along with I AM CURIOUS YELLOW) widely opened the doors for the Sexual Revolution in films and made sex and nudity a common thing in modern movies,which he followed up with two sequels and other erotic films that included THE RELUCTANT SADIST,NANA,FANNY HILL,BEL AMI,SECOND COMING OF EVA,JUSTICE AND JULIETTE,SEX IN SWEDEN,and his last directorial effort HOODLUMS.
Mac then later moved to becoming both a cinematographer and director of photography in Hollywood and often worked on many genre films that include the likes of RE-ANIMATOR,CHAINED HEAT,PARASITE,GHOULIES,YOUNG WARRIORS,AREA,ROBOTJOX,HOUSE and its sequel,PRISON,DEEPSTAR SIX,THE HORROR SHOW,and his last film EVIL BONG.
He was 81 and passed away from complication from congestive heart failure,for his passing is a major loss to the filmmaking world.
