Stuart Gordon, the director of the 1985 cult horror film Re-Animator, has passed away aged 72.
The Chicago-born American filmmaker and playwright came to fame with the gore-filled comedy-horror movie Re-Animator, based on a number of H.P. Lovecraft stories.
Gordon and business partner Brian Yuzna would then successfully pitch a story to Disney which would inspire the smash-hit Honey, I shrunk the kids in 1989.
His career continued on mostly low-budget sci-fi films like Fortress (1992), Space Truckers (1996), and Dagon (2001).
Gordon’s cause of death has not been released, but he was known to suffer from hypertension.
