Not sure if anyone knows this but Zedd passed away this year.

Yeah, like mentioned above, it was first mentioned in Deaths topic, by singer of Contortus. Curiously he was the guy who sent me the Thrust In Me VHS copy back in the mid 90's. It was VHS tape with couple XXX flicks or mondo-gore kind of stuff, and as there was few minutes blank in the end, this short film was dubbed there without prior request. In in 90's, when you lived in small town Finland, it was rare that anyone would have extensive video collections. All K-18 films were still illegal to sell back then (until turn to 00's, which now seems ridiculous). I don't know if the youngsters even really remember that horror, gore, even regular hardcore porn was illegal to sell, therefore pricy and harder to get.
Then getting surprised with Nick Zedd film, which was like all misfits engaging into sex, death and blasphemy with neat punk soundtrack and very much DIY ethos, it had big impact. There is something in use of FILM that makes a lot of things work. Often with later days independent movies, I just dislike the typical look of digital video, that can't really rate it as... movie. As a FILM. The early cinema of transgression, the film itself makes a lot of short bits work that are nothing that unusual when compared to what has been published since mid 80's.

In deaths topic mentioned Nick Zedd.
His works was real inspiration, especially back in the day.

Some good articles:

That filmmaker I interviewed Michael Bilandic, talented guy in his own right, told me that he was at an Oliver Stone talk and out of nowhere Zedd barged in to lambast Stone for his uncritical support of the Iraq WMDs NatSec plot line and then accused Stone of ripping Zedd's aesthetic off with Natural Born Killers. Zedd said he wanted royalties. LOL.
