Belated RIP, John Llewellyn Moxey

Sadly, there wasn’t much coverage on the death of British director John Llewellyn Moxey, who passed away last April 2019. He was 94. Horror fans will identify Moxey immediately for helming two classics: Horror Hotel and The Night Stalker. However, his range was much broader and he successfully directed crime, drama, and other genre in TV and Screen. The circus heist film “Circus of Fear / Psycho-Circus” is a personal favorite. Moxey’s sharp wit and bear-trap memory are exemplified by Blue Underground’s Blu-ray commentary for COF. RIP John Llewellyn Moxey.

Indicator’s The Camp on Blood Island arrived! This is part of Indicator’s Hammer Vol. 3 “Blood and Terror” box set. I even have the pulp paperback reprint from 1974, originally published in 1958 by Panther Books. The novel was adapted from the screenplay co-written by Val Guest and J.M. White.

RIP Little Richard

Visceral. Flamboyant. Gifted. The mold was broken with Little Richard. Jerry Lee might be the last man standing. All the great ones have left us.

I love the British show The Repair Shop now streaming on Netflix. These talented fixer-uppers can repair and restore anything including vintage Dalek toys, clocks, furniture, musical instruments and music boxes. In Episode 4 this fellow even dons “Joe 90” glasses! Nothing like a pat on the back to Gerry and Sylvia!

Ha!

RIP Brian Dennehy

Posted in RIP with tags on April 19, 2020 by MONSTERMINIONS

Award-winning actor Brian Dennehy has died. He was a versatile tough guy probably best known as the asshole sheriff in Rambo, but he made many movies. I liked him in the F/X films opposite Bryan Brown.

Oscar-winning animator Gene Deitch has died. If you ever saw those weird noisy Tom and Jerry cartoons you’ve seen Deitch’s work.
