R.I.P Andy Copp

This weekend we lost a cult cinema mentor in independent film maker Andy Copp, who died at the age of 40 of a reported suicide in his home in Dayton, Ohio.

In addition to unleashing a handful of bloody low-budget films, Andy also spread the gospel of sleaze and bad taste through his numerous 'zines, VHS mix tapes, his outstanding public access show Pirate TV, and by hosting cult and horror film screenings and festivals at local mom 'n pop cinemas in Dayton.

Junk Food Dinner salutes Andy Copp. R.I.P, pal. We'll miss you.

Check out this excellent interview with Andy from former JFD announcer Juliet Fromholt.
