FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Exploitation auteur Greydon Clark to appear at HorrorHound Convention, March 2011
December 16, 2010 - Detroit, MI - Cashiers du Cinemart and mondo-video.com in conjunction with HorrorHound Weekend are thrilled to announce the addition of legendary grindhouse/horror director Greydon Clark.
Greydon Clark will make his appearance March 25th-27th, 2011 at HorrorHound Weekend Indianapolis, Indiana signing exclusively at the Cashiers du Cinemart and mondo-video.com table.
Michigan native Greydon Clark made his way out to Hollywood in the mid-'60s where he befriended schlock auteur Al Adamson. The two paired up to create such low-budget exploitation staples as Satan's Sadists, and Dracula Vs. Frankenstein.
Clark branched out on his own in the '70s where he directed over-the-top cult classics like Without Warning, The Bad Bunch, Black Shampoo, The Uninvited, The Hi-Riders, Satan's Cheerleaders, Angel's Brigade and Final Justice (as seen on MST3K) along with '80s cult comedy classics like Wacko, and Joysticks.
Clark will be signing exclusively at the Cashiers du Cinemart and mondo-video.com table in support and promotion of the 2010 book release, Impossibly Funky: A Cashiers du Cinemart Collection by Mike White.
Known as Quentin Tarantino's Public Enemy #1, Mike White released a short film in 1992 called Who Do You Think You're Fooling? which showcased the cinematic thievery of Tarantino. White uncovered the proof that Tarantino's crime classic Reservoir Dogs was a direct rip off of the Ringo Lam Hong Kong film City On Fire. Upon it's release, Who Do You Think You're Fooling? received national attention, gaining distribution via Film Threat magazine, as well as landing White on MTV.
White's 2010 book, Impossibly Funky features dozens of classic entries from the legendary zine Cashiers du Cinemart. The book includes White's experiences with Tarantino, as well as one-of-a-kind interviews with Bruce Campbell, Paul Williams, Chicago TV horror host Svengoolie, Monte Hellman, blaxploitation actor John Daniels, and director Greydon Clark.
Teaming up with Greydon Cark and mondo-video.com, White will be selling and signing copies of his best-selling anthology at the 2011 HorrorHound Weekend.
