JOHN POLONIA DEAD AT 39
It is with a heavy heart that I report that John Polonia of the Polonia Brothers has passed away yesterday from a heart aneurysm. This truly sucks and there is no nice way of putting it. We here at Divine Exploitation mourn the loss of a true pioneer in micro budget film making. He will be sorely missed. Hopefully, his brother, Mark, will continue the legacy began by this prolific duo back in their teen years.
The Polonia Brothers managed to make thirty movies in a twenty year span. Not bad for movies that sometimes had a budget of less than a hundred dollars.
Do yourself a favor and seek out a couple of the Polonia Brothers films today and bask in the glory of films made for the pure love of films. Recommendations would be SPLATTER FARM, FEEDERS and AMONG US.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, his wife and young son and all who knew John Polonia for what he was, a kind, caring human being.
We miss you already.
