"Nick Zedd makes violent, naked, perverted art films from Hell -- he's my kind of director."
John Waters

"Nick Zedd's films are legendary -- he is a truly seminal figure in the New York underground. Now we have his first book, and I recommend it to anyone interested in the rough underside of our overly-processed culture."
Jim Jarmusch

"I knew I was in love with Nick when he walked into my troll museum looking like a creature from another dimension. I knew it wasn't trolls he was interested in. Luckily, free vodka at a party I'd thrown for Shout, served as a social lubricant, which allowed us to throw off our inhibitions and get together. Nick is a brilliant art star with perfect lips and giant blue elf eyes. He does not fit into this world in any way shape or form yet continues to make art that comes from whatever world he inhabits. He is not afraid to wear pink, which I admire."
Rev Jen

"The elf seared my cornea. Hope my health coverage can handle it!"
Jim Steranko

Tatum O'Neil, 1996

Steven Dourff

"That's the worst possible thing you can say to an artist, Steven."
John Waters

"Oh. Sorry. I mean, I think they're cool." --Steven Dourff, 1996
