Alex, you are my hero. This is the most hardcore work of Russo-hating that I've ever seen, and believe me, I've seen things. I think you're absolutely right about Romero: he would certainly sh*t his pants if this were real.

Re: Ben's Revenge - mock poster & letter


Well, I don't really hate Russo, I just didn't like his involvement with Children, that's all. I have nothing against the guy; he's one of the innovators of the genre helping create Night. I'm sorry if this offends Russo or whoever else, but thought at the time it was funny. I must clarify I’m not a RUSSO-HATING nut job, just someone who got bored and did something creative with his free time.


I also found this, another piece of Russo-hating material at [sign in to see URL] and thought it was amusing -

Speaking of free time, in the music forum I asked people what they are listening to, so please tell us all.

Is it me or does the Ben Robot-zombie pic, top, make him look like a member of the jackson five clan?

That would explain Ben's maniacal character turn.

Actually, I don't hate Russo, either. What bothers me is that he seems to want to cash in on Night's success. I suppose he becomes the poster-child of those people in the horror genre that claim to be artists but are only waiting for a paycheck. Due to his involvement in the original Night, I believe he deserves a paycheck and a reputation to cash-in on. To his credit, I don't think he was closely involved in the demise of Children of the Poo-Poo God.

Here is part of Russo's monument in ]Kitley's Tomb of Shame(an abandoned site?), entitled ]"John Russo-The Man, The Myth, The Pimp":
  "My theory is that since Russo let himself get set on fire for the film, Romero & company figured they’d give him a screenwriter’s credit."

While Kitley's site was being regularly updated, I suggested director/copycat Tommy Lee Wallace as a candidate for Kitley's Tomb of Shame. If there were to be a Night 2, there is a 30 percent chance that Wallace would be either writing or directing.

The only thing that Russo seems to be good at is pimping his own products to the fanboys out there who haven’t figured out just what a hack he is. They’ll stand in line to either to buy his ‘official Zombie dirt’, which probably came from his back yard, or drool over his scream queens ([sign in to see URL]. some girl who’s willing to take off their clothes to be in one of his movies). It never ceases to amaze me.

Thanks for the link, I enjoyed that.

Re: Ben's Revenge - mock poster & letter


An American comedian recently suggested that we, as a nation, pick out one person and hate him. Hate his clothing, his mustache, his accent, and maybe everything else about the guy in order to focus our racism, regionalism, fashion sensibilities, and any other unreasonable form of hatred. All this would be done in the hope that we would be a little nicer to the rest of the humanity(except the ONE GUY, but maybe he's imaginary?). Here, John Russo becomes the ONE GUY. In reality, Sean Cunningham might better exemplify the evils that we associate with Russo.

Still, I remember Abbot Hayes. Where was Russo the artist when Abbot Hayes was unleashed?

God man, Abbot Fuckin' Hayes, what the hell was up with that guy. Although I've only seen this dreadful movie once, wasn't there a spot of bad casting when it came to Abbot. Why, I asked myself did they hire some !@#$ male model for Abbot in the flashback sequences.
God this is stupid, what the hell am I on, I think all the casting was alful, though don't blame Russo, just the guy who directed the turkey and the writer, who from what I've read, was a nutty control freak, and she-devil, according to the director.

Re: Ben's Revenge - mock poster & letter


Abbot Hayes totally sux. It seems that there may have been a real script for Children that largely pertained to the zombie ordeal, but the producer's daughter changed all that with the inclusion of Abbot Hayes. I guess she believed that the zombie sub-genre needs an icon, like the teen-death-opera sub-sub-genre has in the form of Jason Voorhees. Of course, the conclusion of Children does lead one to believe there will be sequels(ahem). Stupid b*tch.

Another point of interest: One of the lead zombies in The Dead Hate the Living looks very much like Abbot Hayes. I've wondered if this is coincidence, or perhaps this is a duplicate. The other lead zombie of Dead Hate the Living is an homage to Fulci's obese zombie from the first boat scene of Zombie. Hmm?
