Mike Vraney

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Something Weird Video’s founder Mike Vraney. Mike Vraney succumbed to a battle with cancer on January 2nd, 2014. Please visit Something Weird Video’s website to read the touching words left by his colleagues, friends and family; Lisa Petrucci, Tim Lewis, Kendall Bechtel, Mark Vraney and Danielle Vraney. Mike Vraney left behind a library of unique cinema that may have otherwise been buried forever; a goldmine of underground films that capture a gone by era of moviemaking for us to embrace, love and treasure as he himself did. Thank you Mike Vraney for Doris Wishman, Michael Findlay, Joe Sarno, David Friedman, Barry Mahon, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Joseph Mawra and so many others. Your legacy will live on in the dusty bookshelves of Something Weird Video’s many fans like myself who will covet and cherish these films forever.
