Sad day. I regret to inform you that the director behind Jason X, James Isaac, has passed away. Several sources are confirming that his cause of death was due to a rare type of blood cancer. This is a loss to the horror community, whether you recognize the name or not. Here’s a brief bio of the late director.
Mr. Isaac directed three real noteworthy films. Jason X is the 10th installment in the Friday the 13th, which was released in 2001 and was a minor box office success. Skinwalkers, a werewolf action film, was released in 2006 mostly straight-to-DVD, but has become one of the most popular movies on the SyFy Channel. Lastly, the creature feature Pig Hunt was released in 2008 and won several awards at various film festivals.
James also has miscellaneous credits on films including The Horror Show, The Fly, Gremlins, Virtuosity, House II, and Children of The Corn: Fields of Terror.
Thank you for all your contributions to horror, James, and may you rest in peace.
