  Maybe Frankenstein Should Be Destroyed
  William Winckler promises homage to horror's golden age
  William Winckler, the man behind the “cheerfully silly ode to larger-than-life femininity,” Double D Avenger is storming back with a “loving homage to classic Universal-style horror films of the 1940s”. The yet-to-be filmed, yet-to-be titled “monster movie” will feature a veritable who’s who of “Who the hell is that?” such as Larry Butler of Lost In The USA fame and Gary Canavello, with special appearances from The Munsters’ Butch Patrick, Raven De La Croix (Russ Meyer’s Up!), Cyberspace Adult Video Review’s Starlet Of The Year Selena Silver and that trailer-trash Cronenberg, Troma’s very own movie maestro, Lloyd Kaufman!!!

“Nobody has ever done an honest to goodness homage to classic black-and-white horror films and monster movies,” says Winckler – a tad unfair one thinks as Spain’s very own Lon Chaney, Paul Naschy, is still doing just that after over 35 years, and bemoans big-budget adventures like Van Helsing mocking and parodying them – he says he wants to give fans the type of serious monster picture that used to feature in magazines like Famous Monsters Of Filmland.

Along with Frankenstein’s monster, fans can also expect to see a number of other classic-style creatures – the make-up effects are being created by Buffy’s Rich Knight and Rufus Hearn. The movie is tentatively set for release later this year –if you have already wet your pants over this then keep an eye on www.doubledavenger.com for further information.
