I want to acknowledge the passing of a horror legend: John Carl Buechler. You might not recognize his face, but you'd recognize the horrible faces he created in his career as a special effects make-up artist, director, producer, writer, and even as an actor. I know I especially appreciate his contributions to several of my favorite movies including "Friday the 13th: Part VII: The New Blood," "Ghoulies," "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers," "Hatchet," "Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master," "Re-Animator," and "Troll," amongst so many others. 

His battle with cancer and passing has left his family with abundant medical bills. Please consider making a donation to help his wife and three children. Even a little bit goes a long way.

Thank you, and keep it spooky,
