Happy Birthday John LLewellyn Moxey!!!

My favorite TV movie director turned 86 years young today! YAY! I have loved this man for as long as I can remember. While he directed films in different genres, it was his thriller and horror films that allowed him to showcase his deft skills at generating copious amounts of suspense! I'll just link to his IMDb page because it's ridiculously long (and amazing), but I will say the world would not be the same without The Night Stalker, Home for the Holidays, The House that Would Not Die or Smash-Up on Interstate 5, or Where Have all the People Gone, or... or... there's just too many!

Turns out Panic in Echo Park is currently playing in its entirety on YouTube! This drama is not quite as good as his horror films, but it is a lot of fun and Dorian Harewood puts in a marvelous performance! Enjoy!

And Happy Birthday Mr. Moxey... Here's to 86 more!

This should have been called Dr. Shaft.
