Stuart Gordon


Born - 11 August 1947, Chicago, Illinois, USA
Died - 24 March 2020

Big, bespectacled, balding, fiercely bearded American director (and often writer) of horror films filled with nudity and grisly violence - but a cult figure among horror aficionados who also provided the original story idea for the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movies. He occasionally returned to children's themes among gorefests that included Re-Animator (1985), From Beyond (1986), The Dolls (1987), Robot Jox (1989), Daughter of Darkness (1990), The Pit and the Pendulum (1991), Fortress (1993), Castle Freak (1995), Space Truckers (1996), The Wonderful Ice-Cream Suit (1998), Dagon (2001), King of the Ants (2003), Edmond (2005), Stuck (2007) and Bunker of Blood Chapter 5: Demon Freaks (2018), his last. He was married for more than 50 years to actress Carolyn Purdy, who appeared in several of his films and, with their three children, survives him.
