Some sad news this morning as it appears that director James Isaac (Jason X, Skinwalkers, and Pig Hunt) has passed away at age 51. Isaac was heavily influenced by David Cronenberg (note Cronenberg’s appearance in Jason X) and also did special effects work for eXistenz (as well as non-Cronenberg films Virtuosity and House 2: The Second Story).
This morning screenwriter Todd Farmer (who wrote Jason X) tweeted, “RIP Jimmy Issac. A wonderful man, husband and father. I never tear up. I thought.”
I’m not sure what the cause of death was, all I know is that he was most certainly too young. And that he gave us one of the all time great Friday The 13th kills (the frozen face).
Our sincere condolences go out to his friends and family. Put on Jason X today.
