Another one of our genre's unsung heroes has passed on, and while he's not exactly a huge name in the industry, two of his films have been nothing if not influential to a lot of filmmakers still toiling away today.
Filmmaker Charles Pierce who was best known for his two films The Legend of Boggy Creek and The Town that Dreaded Sundown, has passed on quietly at the age of just 71 in his Dover, Tennessee, Nursing Home.
Charles also worked on such other classics as Boggy Creek 2: And the Legend Continues, Sudden Impact, Coffey, Killer Bees, and The Outlaw Josey Wales.
