Four More 2013 Celebrity Passings

    Looks like I’ll have to put off my planned reviews of films that I watched on December 2012(and boy,are they a lot of them !!) and TEXAS CHAINSAW 3-D(which I’m still slowly recovering from the sheer awfulness of it[as abudently gory as it was,and better than THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE:THE NEXT GENERATION[{a.k.a.: RETURN OF THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE}]),four more top celebrities have passed away this past week,for here’s who we’ve sadly lost to the Big Blue Skies above…

    * Fred Lincoln: best known as Weasel in Wes Craven’s LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT,he was also an accomplished porn filmmaker and actor(with acting bits in DEFIANCE[OF GOOD] and DOMINATRIX WITHOUT MERCY]),as well as directed the 1988 DTV actioneer WILD MAN(with Michelle Bauer,Ginger Lynn Allen,and SLAVE GIRLS FROM BEYOND INFINITRY villain Don Schriber as the title hero) and acted in CASE OF THE FULL MOON MURDERS,FLESHPOT ON 42ND. STREET,and HERE COME THE TIGERS. His passing was sadly ignored by the likes of Fangoria,Dread Central,Bloody Disgusting,and the Mobius forum(possibly because of his asscoaition with the porn industry[since his passing occurred on the eve of this past weekend’s AVN Expo]).

   * Nagisa Oshima: Japanese filmmaker who’s best known for his controversial erotica drama IN THE REALM OF THE SENSES(featuring semi-hardcore porn scenes,and a gory castration finale),as well as the likes of EMPIRE OF PASSION,MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. LAWRENCE,BOY,THECEREMONY,and his final film TABOO(about gay samurais).

  * Conrad Bain: best known as the Dad of DIFFERENT STROKES,a sitcom family comedy which is nowadays best known for its eerie deaths of its co-stars(such as Bain,Dana Plato,and Gary Coleman),and co-star Todd Bridges’ post-series criminal escapades-turned-jaihouse stints in the late 80s and early 90s(which he fully cleaned up and has stayed straight and clean as a whistle).

  * Patty Shepard: the Spanish actress who starred in various Eurogenre films that included the likes of WITCHES MOUNTAIN,ASSIGNMENT TERROR(a.k.a.: DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN),THE WEREWOLF VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMAN(a.k.a.: WEREWOLF’S SHADOW),HANNAH,QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES(a.k.a.: CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD),SLUGS,MY DEAR KILLER,THE BURNED CITY,CREATION OF THE DAMNED,FRENCHIE QUEEN,20 PATCHES TO DEATH,ELLA,THE MAN CALLED NOON,and her final films REST IN PIECES and EDGE OF THE AXE(both directed by Jose Larraz).

    Expect the Celebrity Passings list to grow much larger in the next coming months…

Horror Cinema Mightily Triumphs Once Again,As MAMA Claims The Number One Spot At This Weekend’s Box Office(Knocking ZERO DARK THIRTY Out Of That Very Spot),Although Its Oscar Nominated Star Jessica Chastain Doesn’t Seem So Happy To Be Associated With This Guillmero del Toro-Produced Film (Tough Shit For Her[Since She’s Making Some Good Money For Herself From The Success Of This Film[As Well As ZERO DARK THIRTY])

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.
