Fulci films like The Beyond and Zombie were a huge influence, as were Bava films. But the best grindhouse experience was seeing "The Last Hunter" in a 42nd street theater with a truly insane audience of degenerates. The other film that really nailed me was Supervixens - which is just the greatest of Meyer's later works, funny, sick and everything in between.
Many times as a kid, growing up in Poughkeepsie NY. Being broke it was our only real affordable family outing, bringing soda, popcorn and snacks from home. Seeing Planet of the Apes Movies at the 9G Drive in was a landmark childhood experience.
My name is Bill Burke, and I guess I'm an exploitation Producer/Director based in Toronto. I have produced several Cinemax series including Sin City Diaries, Forbidden Science.
