Stuart Gordon Has Passed Away

Stuart Gordon Has Passed Away
I'm absolutely crushed by the news that Stuart Gordon has passed away. According to multiple sources (including Variety), Gordon's family confirmed that the filmmaker passed away on Tuesday night at the age of 72. Probably best known for Re-Animator, he also directed From Beyond, Dagon, Castle Freak and much more, including the criminally under-seen Dolls.

Aside from directing, he also co-wrote Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and wrote Body Snatchers, The Dentist, and more. And on top of his film and TV work, he was also very active in theater productions, having directed Nevermore…An Evening with Edgar Allen Poe, Re-Animator: The Musical, and Taste.

We were very fortunate to team up The Stanley Film Festival back in 2015 for a 30th anniversary screening of Re-Animator, with Stuart Gordon as the guest of honor. My wife's favorite horror movies are Re-Animator and From Beyond, and I was especially excited for her to meet him.
