Long Island Cannibal Massacre Homage In Pulp Fiction

I know I can’t be the ONLY person that has noticed this.

This has been making me fuckin’ nuts. Nobody knows what I’m talking about. In “Pulp Fiction,” there’s that famous quote where Butch says, "Zed’s dead, baby. Zed’s dead."

There is a little cult movie that very few people know about (sometimes I think I’m the only person in the entire universe that’s seen it) called “Long Island Cannibal Massacre.” It was directed by a great director named Nathan Schiff on a Super-8 camera when he was 18 years old. In this movie, there is a guy that rides a motorcycle, named Zed. Towards the end of the movie, Zed is stabbed in the face with a large piece of metal. When Zed’s buddy finds him, he goes back to this other guy, and when the guy asks him where Zed is, he says, “Zed’s dead.” I know I’m stretching a bit, but it’s a well-known fact that QT is a fan of obscure horror movies. This could be a coincidence, but I think it’s an homage.

You all probably think I’m a whacko, but tell me what you think. And, for God sakes, please tell me at least one of you has seen this fucking movie!

This is my first post, BTW! ;D

sorry dude…dude i don´t get to use that word very often…anyways no i haven´t can you buy it ??? and if so were?

This guy mentions it… so you’re not the only one who’s noticed the connection…

[quote]Besides Pillow-head, there’s a murderous biker named Zedd (oddly enough, Peter Greene played a biker/psycho named Zedd in PULP FICTION. Coincidence? Or another Quentin T. homage?)[/quote]
