RIP Richard Franklin

Jul. 13, 2007by: Eric Walkuski

Im not great at this kind of thing, so Ill just lay it out.

Australian director Richard Franklin, known primarily as being the man who directed PSYCHO 2, has passed away. He was 58. (he would have been 59 on the 15th of this month.) In addition, he directed CLOAK AND DAGGER, LINK, and F/X 2, as well as some t.v. (Beauty and the Beast; The Lost World).

PSYCHO 2 is a movie that gets a bad rap just because it has the balls to be PSYCHO 2" but in actuality it is not a bad film at all. In fact, while not a great movie, in many ways its the most perfect a sequel to a seminal movie can be - at least in terms of its story and atmosphere.

As well, his ROADGAMES is just a hoot, and you owe it to yourselves to check it out. Its like a tongue-in-cheek DUEL, with a really enjoyable performance from Stacy Keach as a truck driver who encounters a serial killer in the lonely Australian outback.

I suppose that's all I can say, but if you have something to add about one of his flicks, feel free to post below. Once more, RIP Richard Franklin.
