Dan O'Bannon R.I.P!
This was sad news. Dan O´Bannons was one of the best screenwriters out there, and when he didn't get the full credit he at least contributed with some marvelous ideas and concepts. He was involved in many of the best screenplays I know, and some cheesy but great ones. All these are favorites of mine and I think all of them bear typical O'Bannon trademarks like good dialogue, interesting characters and truly shocking moments:
Dead & Buried
The Return of the Living Dead
I know the last two isn't the most loved movies out there, but they are two favorites of mine. Hemoglobin is a daring and provocative horror/monster movie about incest and inbreeding and Screamers is a VERY underrated sci-fi movie with great violence, actors and storyline.
The genre movie-industry just got a bit more boring...
