David DeCoteau is a film director best known for his love of unnecessary punctuation marks, as well as young, fit males in their underwear.  His dozens and dozens of movies are all ultra-low-budget and generally feature 1960's-level special effects, and 1990's-porn-level acting. His movies A Talking Cat!?!, A Talking Pony!?!, and An Easter Bunny Puppy were reviewed on Episode 28, 41 and 54 of the podcast respectively.

Facts[edit | edit source]

  • Started out directing cheap, hardcore straight porn under a fake name
  • Actually got his big break in filmmaking through Roger Corman
  • Wasted this by spending most of the 90s making late-night Skinimax films in between schlock and Puppet Master sequels
  • Generally uses pseudonyms in place of his real name in the credits of his movies
  • One such fake name is Richard Chasen--if you need that joke spelled out for you, then clearly you aren't paying attention
  • His 1313 film series is literally nothing but an excuse to put 20-year-old men in their boxer shorts for 70 minutes
  • Establishes establishing shots to death.
  • Uses his lavish Malibu mansion to film many of his softcore porn movies
  • It was also featured prominently in A Talking Cat!?! and most of his talking animal films
  • Does do the occasional exploitation film featuring women in homoerotic situations so he's at least an equal opportunity filmmaker
  • Most of his later films are still rather chaste with little to no nudity and mostly heterosexual love scenes, albeit with often multiple male participants that the camera focuses on more
  • Truthfully, he's harmless as far as directors go, and has an Ed Wood-like genuineness to his movies that hacks like Uwe Boll and Michael Bay most certainly do not
  • Directed Greg Sestero in Retro Puppet Master which, in a roundabout way according to Sestero's book, makes him indirectly responsible for The Room
