William Lustig receives the Career Achievement Award

William Lustig directed a whole set of genre films in the 1980s, including Maniac and the Maniac Cop trilogy. Maniac was shown yesterday after William Lustig’s Career Talk, the first part of the Maniac Cop trilogy can be seen today on Imagine. Lustig is a real genrefan who spent a large part of his childhood with all kinds of horror, grindhouse and exploitation films in the dingy cinemas on 42nd Street in New York. He has meanwhile hung his director’s chair, but he is still fully engaged with his passion through his own DVD and blu-ray label Blue Underground, on which he releases his favorite genre films.
