Dries Vermeulen was a longtime movie lover from Belgium whose initially wholesome interest (kicking off with Disney’s The Love Bug at age three) turned seriously twisted when his mom allowed him, now aged thirteen, to attend a late-night screening all by his lonesome of Joe D’Amato’s Emanuelle and the White Slave Trade to “further his education!” From here on, it was a slippery slope that guided him through his home country’s sleazier cinemas where he was to discover the joys of casual same-sex experiences along with some of the wildest sexploitation and XXX offerings perpetrated by pornographers from all over the world. Gaining considerable notoriety as IMDb’s DirtyMovieDevotee opened many doors, contributing classic adult movie reviews to the Distribpix website as well as contributing liner notes to several of their upcoming releases. He married his boyfriend of many years, with whom he had been playing house since 1987, in 2012. They were living happily ever after in the picturesque city of Bruges until he untimely passed away in January 2019. He was fifty-one.
