The Incredibly Strange Film Show: Tsui Hark & Stuart Gordon (1989)
This British television show was hosted by Jonathan Ross and featured interviews with various "B" movie makers. When viewed today this series is all the more important because so many of the filmmakers are no longer with us.
This episode takes a look at two different cult directors. Tsui Hark who is best known for A Chinese GHOST STORY and Stuart Gordon who of course is best known for RE-ANIMATOR. Both filmmakers are given equal time in the episode but there's no question that the main attraction is the better known Gordon. We hear about the making of RE-ANIMATOR and there are also some clips shown from DOLLS. Overall this wasn't the greatest episode in the series but both interviews with the directors were good and we also get interviews with John Carl Buechler and Jeffrey Combs.
