It is with a sad heart that I report (via porn colunist J.C. Adams) that gay porn director and producer William Hunter passed away. Hunter, who directed such films as "Badlands" (with my all- time favorite, Johnny Rahm), "Force of Nature" (which contains one of Eduardo's HOTTEST scenes IMHO), the outrageously funny "Santa's Coming" (another Rahm film), "Tricked" (excellent film) and "Hotter Than Life" as well as produced films like "Chain of Desire" and "Rent-a-Fantasy" (a very decent little film with newbie Steve Pierce as a hippie college student's whore for the night), was a long-time veteran of the porn industry who had a penchant for plot-driven porn and twinks. Although Hunter worked for a number of studios, his primary body of work was for HIS Video. Most of his recent work had been for Totally Tight Video and All Worlds. Hunter was quite well-known in the industry, but not to fans. He was very much liked among his peers, it seems.

I'm checking on cause of death and date, but it appears Hunter passed away in mid-June. He had told associates, however, that he did not want a big fuss made over his passing. It seems his wishes were honored.

Some of Hunter's films:

  • Alley Action (HIS Video)

  • Badlands (1992, Planet Group; director)
