With skid-row budgets and a healthy disregard for the rules of cinema, Ray Dennis Steckler’s gift for churning out groovy, untamed, psychotronic and confounding films has yet to meet its match. From mixed-up zombies to Lemon Grove kids to Hollywood stranglers, Steckler’s passion for writing, directing and producing B movies created a body of work that remains a testament to an auteur the likes of which the world will never see again. 

Steckler’s guerilla-style filmmaking not only brings charm to his DIY flicks, but it also provides a time capsule of Steckler’s world. Sweeping across genres, he worked in everything from family friendly features to adult entertainment. In spite of this, his point of view remained consistently Steckler, thereby ensuring that each frame was as fascinating as the one that came before it.   

Originally included in Severin’s box set The Incredibly Strange Films of Ray Dennis Steckler, The Incredibly Strange Filmmaker Who Stopped Living And Became A Mixed-Up Legend is a loving tribute to the self-proclaimed “Hollywood outsider.” Affectionately written by Zack Carlson, co-author of Destroy All Movies!!! and Bleeding Skull: A 1990s Trash-Horror Odyssey, with contributions by Charles Devlin, this beautifully illustrated 96-page overview of Steckler’s astonishing and inspiring career offers a comprehensive and detailed accounting of the filmmaker’s life in front of and behind the camera. The book includes a detailed rundown of his films, their alternate versions, trivia, release dates, as well as a breakdown of the box set's discs with their technical specs and much, much more.
