The behind the scenes documentaries on the DVD releases of most of his movies are legendary in length and scope (especially Killing Spree (1987) and Creep (1995), creating quite the inspiration for aspiring no budget horror moviemakers. Ritter is affectionately known as 'The Godfather Of Video Gore'.
Ritter states that he has read every issue of Fangoria magazine cover-to-cover from issue #1 on. It's one of his very few addictions.
Has written two novels, The Hammer Will Fall (1999) and Unreel (2004). Hammer saw publication in South Korea, as well.
Did a radio show with legendary horror director Herschell Gordon Lewis, who Ritter idolized when growing up, only to have Lewis verbally trash his movie Killing Spree (1987) live on the air. Lewis was later apologetic when he found out the movie was dedicated to him as 'The True Godfather of Gore.'.
