RIP Ray Dennis Steckler
The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? really tests the "Classic" in Turner Classic Movies. (The guys who put up letters on marquees must have dreaded when that one came to town.) Industry recognition via the roll call of the dead at this year's Academy Awards is far from assured. But a one-man band of a filmmaker who called one self-made movie The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?, and another Rat Phink and Boo-Boo, and who continued to churn them out on his own, deserves a little respect on his passing.
