    Default Bob Clark is dead...

    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/32155

    Rest In Peace Bob Clark
    Fuck. Just... fuck.

    This is horrible.

    Bob Clark was killed this morning, along with his 22 year old son, in a car crash in LA. The other driver is suspected of having been under the influence and is fine, of course.

    I'm a massive Bob Clark fan. His two Christmas movies are phenomenal, classics in their respective dramas. A CHRISTMAS STORY will be a mainstream favorite for generations to come, its quirky comedy and heart destined to survive past you or me and any offspring we might produce.

    BLACK CHRISTMAS will hopefully live on while the shitty remake disappears into obscurity. This film gets looked over for HALLOWEEN, but began the slasher genre as it came to be known a good 4 years prior to John Carpenter's masterpiece.

    Featuring the jaw-droppingly gorgeous Olivia Hussey in her prime as well as Margot Kidder, Andrea Martin and John Saxon, this flick is incredibly watchable and just as important a film within the horror community as his mainstream family comedy that gets repeated for 24 hours the entire month of December.

    I'm not a terribly huge fan of his first cult film, CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS, but there's an unmistakable talent at work with that film, someone who understands how to make one squirm.

    I much prefer his next film, the one between CHILDREN and BLACK CHRISTMAS, called DEAD OF NIGHT (aka DEATHDREAM), about a Vietnam vet who is killed and returns home, a dead killer. There was talk of Eli Roth remaking that just after CABIN FEVER, but I don't think anything ever came of it. Joe Dante's MASTERS OF HORROR episode seemed to take that premise, but make it an over the top ridiculous political statement.

    Never to be pigeon-holed as one type of director, Clark also directed the first two T&A masterpieces, PORKY'S, the Sly Stallone cheesefest RHINESTONE, LOOSE CANNONS (a movie I still love to this day), TURK 182! and that awesome AMAZING STORIES episode where the husband has the magic remote and Lou Ferrigno's HULKE comes out...

    He ended his career with the crappy BABY GENIUS movies, but his backlog of amazing work more than makes up for those. The whole situation is tragic.

    My thoughts are with Mr. Clark's friends, family and fans.

    Is Dick Clark still alive? I'd be sad when he dies.

    Mr. Nipples - there is a protocol for announcing someone's death on this board and you did not follow it.
    Hunting has been part of our society since the first Europeans came over and shot buffalo and Native Americans and whatnot.

    A sequel? Does this mean the first one was a boxoffice smash?

    I was gonna say someone needs to make a thread about coachella board etiquette, but that would be giving too much away to the newbies who haven't earned it yet.
