JONATHAN DEMME 1944-2017

**************************************************

It is with a heavy heart that MonsterZero NJ’s Movie Madhouse reports the passing of Silence Of The Lambs director Jonathan Demme. Demme got his start with Roger Corman directing such cult classics as Caged Heat and Crazy Mama and was an original visionary who came to direct one of the greatest thrillers of all time, one that earned him an Academy Award for best director. He also directed other renown films such as Stop Making Sense, Married To The Mob and Philadelphia. He was battling cancer when passed away today at age 73. A unique talent who will be missed.

FAREWELL AND R.I.P. ERIN MORAN!

MZNJ_NEW_news

ERIN MORAN 1960-2017

**************************************************

While most folks remember actress Erin Moran as Richie Cunningham’s spunky little sister, Joanie on Happy Days and it’s brief running spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi, MonsterZero NJ will always fondly recall the actress for her role in the cult classic Corman flick Galaxy Of Terror as psychic, and very claustrophobic, Quest crew member Alluma. Sadly, the actress was found unresponsive in her Indiana home and the cause of death has yet to be determined. She was only 56.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHANTASM!

MZNJ_NEW_news

MonsterZero NJ wishes  a very happy (belated) 38th birthday to one of my all-time favorite horror films and a true horror original… Phantasm! The Don Coscarelli classic was released on March 28th, 1979 and spawned not only a beloved franchise, but added The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) to the list of immortal horror icons!
