Edward D. Wood Jr.
portrait

Date of Birth: Oct 10, 1924

Country: USA

Biography: In the 1950s, Wood made a run of cheap and poorly produced genre films, now humorously celebrated for their technical errors, unsophisticated special effects, idiosyncratic dialogue, eccentric casts and outlandish plot elements, although his flair for showmanship gave his projects at least a modicum of critical success. Wood's popularity waned soon after his biggest "name" star, Béla Lugosi, died. He was able to salvage a saleable feature from Lugosi's last moments on film, but his career declined thereafter.

I Woke Up Early the Day I Died (1998)

Take It Out in Trade: The Outtakes (1995)
TAKE IT OUT IN TRADE is a sex film that consists of footage discovered by archivists and assembled to make some sort of sense.

One Million AC/DC (1969)
One Million AC/DC is a heretofore-unrecorded era in prehistory when sources of food other than grapes and the concept of personal shame were complete unknowns. So was hygiene and soap for that matter, as the skinniest, dirtiest, and vilest actors alive cavort in a Styrofoam cave and shark down on each other like jackrabbits on industrial strength Spanish fly. In between sex acts, they mutter mindlessly and avoid the savage onslaught of a gumball machine plastic dinosaur.
