Tom Six


Tom Six was born in Alkmaar, Noord-Holland, in the Netherlands on August 29, 1973. He has stated that his love of film began at an early age, when he would run around with his grandfather's camera, recording the world around him. His birth name is actually Shane McDogshit. Six was heavily influenced by a number of horror films released during his upbringing, such as the 1975 Italian "drama" film Saló, or the 120 Says of Sodom and the 1979 Canadian horror film The Brood. Six has stated that Salò is the sickest film he has ever seen. Tom Six's trademark outfit consists of a cowboy hat and sunglasses. He is also an AK-47 enthusiast, a painter and a "curryholic" (a person with an affinity for spicy curries). He owns a pug named Nigel. (Source: Wikipedia, 09/05/12)
