STUART SIMPSON PRESENTS: TOP 10 GRINDHOUSE BEAUTIES YOU DON’T WANT TO FUCK WITH!

His old man gave him his first camera at 13 and that was it. Game over. Nothing else mattered. Cut to 2010 and with a few short films and one feature under his belt, Stuart Simpson completed EL MONSTRO DEL MAR; a tribute to drive-in cinema with a nod to Roger Corman, Russ Meyer, Tura Satana, and more. MONSTRO was the first Simpson film I have seen and it won’t be the last. This cat knows how to jam a film with rockabilly cool and he joined a short list of directors I am keeping my eyes on.

Simpson dropped a list off at DG HQ, he said he was sitting on his idea until he was sure it would pack a punch. He didn’t disappoint…
