RIP Dan O'Bannon

Dread Central is reporting that screenwriter and director Dan O'Bannon has passed away. He was the writer of such films as 'Alien', 'Blue Thunder', 'Dead and Buried', 'Total Recall'. Plus he wrote and directed the zombie classic 'The Return Of The Living Dead'. This is truly sad news. He gave us so many great films and he will be missed.

Here's a shot from his role in the John Carpenter film he wrote and acted in when they were both still in film school 'Dark Star'.

Requiescat in pace!
