  Farewell Larry Cohen [read more]
  Cult auteur dies aged 77
  Larry Cohen, the proud New Yorker whose films brimmed with wild ideas that did not always match his budgets, has passed away, it has been announced. He had his start in television in the 1950s, writing countless scripts in his incredible work rate, and in the sixties his profile was raised sufficiently to create his own series, Western Branded and sci-fi thriller The Invaders.

It was only a matter of time before he started directing his material, and the 1970s saw him helm horror (It's Alive), science fiction (God Told Me To) and blaxploitation (Black Caesar and its sequel Hell Up in Harlem). The 1980s were fruitful too, with favourites Q, The Stuff, Best Seller and Maniac Cop flowing from his typewriter, leading to the 1990s when he wrote The Ambulance, Body Snatchers and Guilty as Sin, among many others, also directing Original Gangstas. With a truly maverick approach where what was on the screen justified almost everything it took to get it up there, he was a hero to independent genre filmmakers across the globe.
