As I’m sure most of you know, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper passed away on July 31. While most people are aware of his reputation inside the ring, I encourage you to check out his endeavors in film.
First, I would have to insist that you check out John Carpenter’s They Live. A wonderful film about creatures hidden in plain sight, and their methods of controlling the human race. It also happens to feature the longest streetfight scene in movie history. Here’s the trailer:
Second, I am a huge fan of Hell Comes to Frogtown. It is a low-budget post-apocalyptic film with Roddy Piper as Sam Hell, a man that has to go save a group of women from the frogs. This film is still a fun watch. Check out the trailer below.
Recently, Roddy had been working on a film where he fought C’Thulhu. I know they finished the short film, but I don’t know about the feature. Either way, it is sure to be a good experience. Farewell “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.
