Multiple sources report that Ulli Lommel passed away Saturday due to heart failure. He was 72.
Director of the cult classic The Boogeyman (1980), he was at the forefront of the New German Cinema movement and was behind genre films such as Tenderness of the Wolves (1973), Brainwaves (1982) and Blank Generation (1980).
In recent years he was behind a slew of horrid direct-to-video titles from Green River Killer to B.T.K. Killer and Black Dahlia, among many more.
We send our best to his family and friends, and say goodbye to another horror legend in a year filled with loss.
