A Lifetime Achievement Award to Stuart Gordon:

From his 1985 debut as a cult director with Re-Animator to his 2002 H.P. Lovecraft film “Dagon”, Stuart Gordon has consistently delivered quality horror to the masses, and is now considered by many of us to be one of the most important exploitation film-makers of the past 30 years. Gordon will likely always be best remembered for “Re-Animator,” but his other films have always been great works. We are please to honor him. His films Include:

RE-ANIMATOR (1985)
ROBOT JOX (1989)
DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS (1990)
THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM (1990 film) (1990)
FORTRESS (1992)
SPACE TRUCKERS (1996)
DAGON (2001)
KING OF THE ANTS (2003)
EDMOND (2005)
STUCK (2007)

Other great guests include Tom Savini, Jim Wynorski (of course), Conrad Brooks and many many more.

Hope to see you in Franklin, Indiana September 26th thru 28th, 2008!
