  Wayne Southworth R.I.P. [read more]
  Farewell Wayne - we won't forget you.
  This is probably the worst news I've heard for years. I've known for a few weeks but this is so hard to write I'm still not sure I'm really up to doing it justice.

Wayne Southworth, resident editor of The Spinning Image, died on the 18th March. Wayne had been diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 17 (he died aged 28 - no age!) after suffering a massive epileptic seizure and was found on the 21st.

Although I never met Wayne, I spoke to him often via email and never found him anything short of friendly and eager to help. He could turn a review round in hours and wasn't afraid to call a shite film a shite film.

Wayne's writing was always witty, sharp and showed his vast knowledge in the area he loved best - trash movies. Some of his favourite movies were House at the Edge of the Park, Love Camp, The Smuggler, Bloodsucking Freaks, Black Dragon Revenges The Death of Bruce Lee, Cop in Blue Jeans, Emanuelle Queen of Sados... you get the idea. No floppy haired Hugh Grant movies here!

Wayne will be missed by all at The Spinning Image and there's no doubt that this site is a greyer place without him.

Farewell Wayne, The Spinning Image will forever be dedicated to you.
