The headline sadly says it all. :(
Cirio Santiago died yesterday. He had cancer.

There's an obituary here:

http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/inquirerheadl...iago-dies-at-72

Believe it or not but he was actually working on a NEW post-apocalypse film!!! Who else but Santiago would even think of doing one of those 20 years after the genre died. Well, except Bruno Mattei and he also left the building not long ago.

RIP old buddy.

I'd like to bring to your attention a new Santiago review section over at Fred Adelman's (also a member here) eMag Critical Condition. Fred wrote this in tonight's memorial thread over at Dvdmaniacs (and I hope he doesn't mind my posting it here):

I've made no secret of my love for everything Santiago, but his death really hit me hard because I am in the middle of creating a page on my site devoted to all of the films he made with Roger Corman. While the page is nowhere near completed (I have at least 20 more films to post), I decided to release it "as is" and add reviews as I type them in. This is my tribute to Mr. Santiago and the hours and hours of enjoyment he has given me:



You'll find the Santiago review page here:
