DENNIS HOPPER (MAY 17, 1936 - MAY 29, 2010)

Dennis Hopper, who appeared in many roles including EASY RIDER and APOCALYPSE NOW, has died at his home in Venice, California, of complications from prostate cancer. He was 74. Of note to readers of MONSTER MOVIE WORLD, Mr. Hopper starred in NIGHT TIDE, a 1961 low-budget horror movie. Ironically, it was shot in and around Venice and Santa Monica. NIGHT TIDE, often cited as a moody, atomosheric and underrated mystery/horror film, was also director Curtis Harrington's first full-length feature film. Harrington died in 2007.
