RIP Dan O'Bannon 1946-2009

by Paul Johnson

Director/Screenwriter who wrote ALIEN, and caused us to forever associate zombies with “BRAINS!,” has passed away at the age of 63.

Here’s a list of the films he wrote (and, in the case of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, directed) that The Auteurs’ lists in its database. Significant omissions include the creepy 1981 horror film DEAD & BURIED (directed by Gary Sherman), and his second and last directorial effort, THE RESURRECTED.
