RIP b-movie director Ray Dennis Steckler

Passed away on January 7 in his sleep. He was the director (and starred in) of numerous 60s b-movies. I know some folks here have seen the atmospheric horror camp classic The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? His others were The Thrill Killers and Rat Pfink a Boo Boo. The worlds of his movies were really wild and out there too. I bet he's riding around that Cyclon Racer with Ortega in the sky.

The Thrill Killers is actually not bad - Steckler jettisons the usual goofy humor and delivers a surprisingly watchable, creepy, down-beat film.

Quite shocking news. Judging by his career in film, his age appeared to be reasonable for the passing. But he sounded young on his audio commentaries!

R.I.P, Antonioni fan!
