'I Drink Your Blood' helmer David Durston dies

David E. Durston, a writer and director best known for the 1970 cult horror classic "I Drink Your Blood," died May 6 in his West Hollywood home of complications from pneumonia. He was 88.

Durston wrote for such ground-breaking TV shows as "Playhouse 90," "Studio One," "Rheingold Playhouse," "Tales of Tomorrow" -- one of the earliest science-fiction anthology shows -- "Kraft Theater" and "Danger."

He also produced the NBC musical variety show "Your Hit Parade" as well as the annual broadcast of the Tournament of Roses Parade for all three major TV networks during the late 1950s. Durston continued to write and develop original screenplays into his late 80s.

In the mid-'60s, he made the jump into directing his own low-budget, independent features. The first of these was "The Love Statue," a 1966 black-and-white fantasy that explored the effects of LSD on a group of Greenwich Village bohemians.

Later, Jerry Gross of distributor »
