As the years go by and countless new horror projects hit the big and small screens, it becomes increasingly important to not forget the legends of the genre's past. Horror fans consistently do a wonderful job paying respect to the past while enjoying the present, but in the short film Titano, the late, great Irwin Keyes plays a former horror movie villain sadly forgotten... until the opportunity arises one night for his resurrection.
As many horror fans know, Irwin Keyes (House of 1000 Corpses, Intolerable Cruelty) passed away last month at the age of 63. He is missed dearly, but his passion for film will live on forever through his memorable onscreen roles, including his turn as the titular character in Ben Chavda's short film Titano, which you can watch below.

American actor Irwin Keyes has died at the age of 63.
He passed away on Wednesday (July 8). He had suffered from acromegaly, a pituitary gland disorder.
The actor also appeared in several horror movies, including House of 1,000 Corpses and Dahmer vs Gacy in 2009.
"It's with deep sympathy that I'm writing this post," his niece Rene Galarza said on Facebook. "Early this morning my family was informed that our beloved uncle, brother, teammate and friend, Irwin Keyes, has had his last curtain call.
"He is now an angel for us all and will be watching down. Our family wishes to thank all of you who have been a part of his life. He will be missed very much."
Irwin Keyes, a horror character actor best known for his roles in “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Warriors” and “Intolerable Cruelty,” died on Wednesday. He was 63. He also had a recurring role as Hugo, a burly, but dimwitted bodyguard on the ’70s-’80s CBS sitcom “The Jeffersons.” Keyes passed away in Playa del Rey, California, of complications from acromegaly, a rare disorder caused when the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone.

It's so rare to find a summer blockbuster that isn't based on a comic book or video game, that when one comes along, I'm immediately drawn to it. I'll admit that is my primary reason for wanting to check out Tomorrowland (2015), which stars George Clooney as a former boy genius who embarks on a quest to a fictional world where science and imagination know no bounds.
Tomorrowland also looks to give Clooney a role unlike any other he's taken on as a paranoid recluse with powerful secrets lurking inside his head. In honor of Tomorrowland's release, I thought I'd revisit one of my favorite Clooney roles which, although unknown to many, remains loved by those who have seen it.
Written and directed by the Coen Brothers, Intolerable Cruelty (2003) stars Clooney as Miles Massey, Los Angeles' most cunning divorce attorney, who is able to make any cheating spouse in town »

Popular stars Huang Xiaoming and Mini Yang (aka, Yang Mi) are poised to set the Chinese box office alight in May with upcoming young adult romance “You Are My Sunshine.”
Rights to the film are being offered for the first time at FilMart by Le Vision, the film arm of the LeTV online video group whose “big data” resources helped steer the “Tiny Times” franchise releases.
The film has many of the ingredients of the biggest recent hits in China, and already boasts a massive online following.
Le Vision, which handled the release of the “Tiny Times” movies and is also producer and investor, is confidently forecasting that “Sunshine” will gross over RMB700 million ($115 million) following a wide release on May 1, a national holiday in China.

Two months after the recording was first posted by TMZ in October 2014, Collins sat down with Yahoo Global News’ Katie Couric.
