RIP Dan O'Bannon

At a measly 63, genre icon Dan O'Bannon has sadly passed away from what I gather would have been sometime earlier tonight. One of the best writers of Science Fiction and Horror, Dan O'Bannon will be greatly missed.

  1. I knew Dan O'Bannon had struggled with health issues for pretty much his whole life but I still feel blindsided by this news. It's very sad to know he's gone.

  2. It's a wicked surprise considering his age. I guess he has been very ill and in the hospital lately, but I had no clue. I hope he gets some recognition by mainstream media...he was super influential and it would be a shame if he was ignored so people could yap about Tiger Woods fucking a bunch of chicks.

  3. One movie that he wrote that I really love and is severely underrated is Dead & Buried.

    This is very sad.
    He'll be missed greatly by me.

  4. Agreed Chris, Dead & Buried is terribly underrated.

    R.I.P.

  5. Dead and Buried is one of the only movies he wrote that I haven't seen, but it's floating around the queue somewhere. I'm gonna have to move it up so I can check it out sooner.
