A BRIEF LOOK BACK AT MICHAEL FINDLAY
Michael Findlay in SHRIEK OF THE MUTILATED
Michael Findlay ( 1938 – 1977 ), and his wife Roberta, are probably most famous for SNUFF, and the FLESH series of films.
I can not begin to describe how many mixed feelings I have about these folks, and their cinematic crapfests.
Sometimes, their films make me fall asleep. On other occasions, I've laughed so hard, that I thought I was going to lose consciousness... And yet, Mr. Findlay seemed to possess a very artistic eye... And he definitely had a way with words.

How the fuck can anyone NOT love this movie?!... The TOASTER scene alone, is worth the price of admission!
It's available on region one DVD by RETROMEDIA ( via IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT ).
Michael Findlay in WET & WILD ( aka VIRGINS IN HEAT )
I love WET & WILD. It has "wrap-around" segments with Michael.

He narrates the film, and it's worth the price of admission, just to hear his deliciously dirty dialogue. Plus, you also get to see his ultra-hammy acting.
This tawdry turd is a must have!
WET & WILD is available on DVD-R from SOMETHING WEIRD ( paired with the Rene Bond flick BAD BAD GANG ).
Truly horrific... Michael Findlay was among the victims of the helicopter tragedy that killed five people ( at the top of the PAN AM building ).
Many of Michael and Roberta's films have been released on region one DVD, and DVD-R, by SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO, RETROMEDIA, RHINO, MILL CREEK, and other companies.
