    Canuxploitation master William Fruet did the Canadian grindhouse scene proud with his fair share of risky, ribald cult pictures. It's time to celebrate the man with Code Red's release of TRAPPED. Which is your favorite?

    I've seen all his work except for Trapped. I doubt it is any better than Death Weekend so I'm voting for that.

    Wow, I have never heard of him nor seen or heard of any of these movies!

    What rock have I been hiding under?

    I really enjoy Spasms. That's an evil little movie. And it has Oliver Reed in it - always a plus. Greetings from Amsterdam btw.

    I never realized how many movies this guy made that I like. Went with Death Weekend...but I also really enjoy Spasms, Blue Monkey, and Funeral Home. It is a shame how little of his work is on DVD.

    I feel really ashamed. I've read all about these films (They Came From Within: A History of Canadian Horror Cinema), and I'm Canadian, but I haven't seen a single one...

    Yeah, Funeral Home. The artwork alone is great.

    And to think I bought an Egoyan film from you...I feel so cheated...so wrong...

    Get on it, man! Hell, book one for your next Bad Monster screening. :)
