This Day in Death

9.12.12: Catholic News Service Film Reviewer Henry Herx – DEAD!

Filed under: Dead —James @ 9:53 pm September 13, 2012

Howzabout putting that combover up for review, Herx? SLAM! Wait, he’s dead. That was kinda mean.


Henry Herx, film reviewer for the Catholic News Service and the closest thing we had to a real-life Ned Flanders, died yesterday at the age of 79. That is, if you think you can honestly call yourself a film reviewer despite completely ignoring the cinematic oeuvre of Max Hardcore. Look, I’ve only got one fistful of quarters, Herx; Am I seeing Max World 7: Tube Steak Boogie or am I seeing Girls from Butthole Ridge? This has been a fun post to research.

“It’s time to get a little more serious about the art of what they’re doing instead of the self-indulgent twaddle that comes out,” he said in an interview upon his retirement.

This does not bode well for my new film, Self-Indulgent Twaddle. It’s about ex-cop Frankie “Hogwash” Twaddle, coming out of retirement to solve the one case he could never crack: His own murder!!! You try looking McG in his sad puppy eyes and telling him he doesn’t get to direct that.
