Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: BRIAN YUZNA

Some creators are so indelibly linked to a certain franchise or film that it becomes the thing for which they are known, and the title of that film is always located in parentheses after their name. In the case of “Re-Animator,” you might think of director Stuart Gordon, actor Jeffrey Combs, or even original story author H.P. Lovecraft. However, you’d be missing the most important piece of the Herbert West franchise: writer/director/producer Brian Yuzna.

Retro Poster: "Silent Night, Deadly Night"

It wasn't the first Christmas themed horror film, but "Silent Night, Deadly Night" would prove to be the most controversial upon its wide release in 1984. Director Charles E. Sellier Jr.'s slasher film caused quite a stir with its provocative promotional campaign. Not only did the national PTA fight to have it pulled from theaters due to the potentially scarring image of a killer Santa, the film was given the best reward an exploitation film could hope for, a condemnation by Siskel and Ebert. It was so controversial in the UK, that it wasn't officially released there until 2009.
