James Isaac, Director of such films as Jason X, Skinwalkers, and Pig Hunt passed away from a form of blood cancer May 7th at the age of 51. Isaac also did special effects work for films such as David Cronenberg’s eXistenz, and non-Cronenberg films such as Virtuosity and House 2: The Second Story.
On the morning of the 7th, Jason X screenwriter Todd Farmer tweeted: “RIP Jimmy Isaac. A wonderful man, husband, and father. I never tear up. I thought.”
I may not be a fan of the films he directed, but it was obvious that he put everything he had into them. RIP James.
