Personal Quotes (3)

You have to do these things for art.
To be born a male redhead is to be born into a clown suit.
[about Forbidden Zone (1980)] When "Forbidden Zone" first came out in 1982, I had lost my shirt paying for it and moved back to France for a while. When I returned, the film had played out its summer theatrical run and seemed to disappear. It wasn't until a few years ago, when I went on line with my first website and had several hundred thousand hits from people all over the world, that I realized that the film had become some sort of a cult hit. What was more surprising was that much of the following were students who weren't even around in the days of the Mystic Knights. I guess the film has "legs," although an oddly twisted, black and white set of them.
