PAUL HUNT PASSED AWAY AT AGE 67
PAUL HUNT DIES AT AGE 67
CODE RED has learned that PAUL HUNT, director, producer, and writer of many exploitation films has passed away on September 13. Paul wanted CODE RED to release TWISTED NIGHTMARE, DEMON WIND, and THE GREAT GUNDOWN, but we were unable to find 35mm prints of these films. The last conversation I had with Paul was back in April when he called me at 1:00am telling me that his mother was in the hospital. He wanted to talk to me to get his mind off what was happening and he started to tell me all these crazy stories about his past films (e.g. Quincy Jones was originally supposed to do the music for ERIKA'S HOT SUMMER!!!) He kept telling me that Gary Graver's family have his 35mm prints and that we can put out deluxe editions of the films he made, but it's a shame nothing was found and we never were able to do anything. We'll miss you Paul and will remember you for all the films you worked on.
