We were saddened to wake to the news that the horror universe has lost special effects maestro, #JohnCarlBuechler. His contributions to the genre are some of what we consider to be the most important: continually delivering inventive practical effects, puppetry and wicked monster makeup to the screen -- tackling some the biggest names in the slasher world but also some of the most creative cult-favorite creature flicks. John's expansive career ran the gamut, finding him acting, producing, directing but ALWAYS sticking with the genre. He was one of us. He was a monster kid. His absence is palpable and we will truly miss him. This week, in his honor, we will be screening a double feature of Friday the 13th VII: The New Blood and Never Hike Alone to review @wompstompfilms stellar homage to the Friday franchise including the work of John Carl Buechler. We encourage you to celebrate John with a screening of one of his films this evening or taking a deep dive into some behind the scenes coverage of your favorite of his creations. Continue your Horror Education. Celebrate special effects magic. Take your #MonsterKid passion with you. Demand amazing monsters. John, we'll miss you.
