For more information follow the category link. as well as what many fans and critics agree is THE DEFINITIVE JASON VOORHEES.. Buechler’s work in cinematic monster-making is legendary. His amazing design and visual effects artistry has graced the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET film franchise, the HALLOWEEN franchise and multiple other classic horror and visual fantasy films.When he ran the make-up effects department at New World Pictures, 'Roger Corman' called him "...the best in the business..."He was the first person in history to make his way into the director's chair by way of make-up effects superstardom.With over 87 movies and someone who truly goes the entire nine yards, John Carl Buechler has made his name known as an accomplished writer, producer, director and special effects artist. Since his early years, Buechler was filled with a passion for filmmaking and special effects and formed his own company Magical Media Industries, for production and the creation of special effects for a handful of motion pictures in the science fiction and horror/fantasy genre.Although he is known for his fascinating make-up work, as a writer/director, Buechler made his debut on an anthology fantasy film entitled The Dungeonmaster. From here we went on to helm a long list of successful and distinguished motion pictures, and television shows, including: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Cellar Dweller, Ghoulies Go To College, Land of the Lost, Tarzan the Epic Adventures, Watchers Reborn, Ice Crawlers, A Light in the Forest, Curse of the Forty-niner and many others…Premiere Magazine has quoted him as saying," if you can pull a performance out of a piece of latex, you can do it with actors..."John's outstanding visual effects work can also be seen in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the Ghoulies franchise, HALLOWEEN 4, 6 and H20, Nightmare on Elm Street 4 & 6 and more recently Hatchet.Though well known as a visual effects creator, it was his acknowledgement as Troll’s critically acclaimed director that led him to direct the seventh sequel to the ever famous Friday the 13th for Paramount Pictures. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, like its many sequels was another box-office success. The rest is cinematic history. Wikipedia
