Stuart Gordon passes away aged 72

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announced that famed Horror maestro Stuart Gordon has passed away at the age of 72 years old. Gordon’s family confirmed the news to Variety, but have yet to announce the cause of Gordon’s death.

Gordon was best known for his movies Reanimator, The Dentist, Robot Jox, From Beyond, Dolls and Space Truckers but he also co-created the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids franchise and wrote a number of episodes for the television series E.R. Also, he founded the Organic Theatre Company with his wife, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon. The theatre premiered a number of acclaimed plays, including David Mamet’s Sexual Perversity in Chicago.

“The Lovecraft purists are always very upset with me because I’m always throwing all of this nudity into these movies, and there is no nudity in Lovecraft. But my argument is that there is a tremendous sexuality about Lovecraft, and a fear of sex, taking the reproductive act and turning it into something monstrous. Although he doesn’t get explicit with it, he’ll refer to it constantly in his stories. And in a movie, you have to use images to show things.”
