R.I.P. JESS FRANCO, ROGER EBERT, & RICHARD BROOKER

Death, it would seem, always seem to happen in threes. Recently 2 figures in the horror/exploitation community: Jess Franco and Richard Brooker (the first actor to ever wear the quintessential Jason Hockey Mask), and a great critic who would, at times, wage war against the genre, but always knew art when he saw it: Roger Ebert.

After the break, you’ll find obituaries celebrating the lives of these men who entertained and, at times, enraged us, but all the same, had our respect.
