It was on this day in 2013 that we lost a good man- a great friend- and a fine mentor. RIP- Jerry G. Bishop- the original Svengoolie- who got me into this business and decided that I should follow in his footsteps as a horror show host. Still miss him so much.
Also, the great horror artist Basil Gogos has passed- his artwork of famous monsters, many of which appeared on the covers of -what else/- Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine are instantly recognizable.
One final note- horror director Tobe Hooper passed away last week- we’re sorry that we did not get to mention it.
One final suggestion- we are all here for such a short time- please make sure to tell those you care about how important they are to you.
Many thanks and warm wishes to you all.
