Mini Bio : Claudio Fragasso

imagebam.comBorn the 2nd of October, 1951, in Rome, Claudio Fragasso's name will forever be synonymous with crappy films with ultra-low budgets. He worked extensively with Bruno Mattei, and has 32 writing credits, 13 assistant director credits, and an astonishing 8 acting credits in addition to the 23 films he directed. Not bad for no budget. Today he works in the Italian TV industry, and has appeared at Troll 2 screenings and the Troll 2 documentary, Best Worst Movie. Not surprisingly, he's directed under numerous pseudonyms, including Clyde Anderson, Clide Fergusson, Drago Floyd, Drake Floyd, Claudio Fracassi, Claude Fragass, Werner Knox, and Claudio Sansevero.
