Welcome to “This Day in Horror History” January 5th
David DeCoteau born on January 5, 1962
You may or may not be familiar with the work of David DeCoteau, but he’s a filmmaker with a very devout following. He’s been behind the lens on more than one Puppet Master film, and he is hugely popular in the queer community for his darkly erotic series like The Brotherhood and 1313.
Vinnie Jones born on January 5, 1962
At 6’2″, Vinnie Jones makes an impressive figure no matter what role he steps into, but when that role is Mahogany in the stellar adaptation of Clive Barker’s The Midnight Meat Train, he takes sinister to a completely different level. I know I wouldn’t want to cross him in a dark alley.
Marilyn Manson born January 5, 1969
He’s one of the world’s most famous shock rockers, and he’s very good at what he does whether it’s filling seats in an arena or starring Let Me Make You a Martyr. Manson’s very presence is enough to make some shudder, and the fans love him for it.
