R.I.P. Dan O’Bannon

On Thursday December 17th, writer/director DAN O’BANNON lost his ongoing battle with Crohn’s Disease at the age of 63. O’BANNON is best known to horror fans as the screenwriter of ALIEN, DEAD AND BURIED, and of course the 1985 punk zombie comedy THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, which also marked his directorial debut.  His films had a great impact on both the  modern science fiction and horror genres, his presence will be missed.
