Rest In Peace Director James Isaac


It is with tremendous sadness that we’ve just learned about the passing of director James Isaac; the helmer of JASON X, THE HORROR SHOW, SKINWALKERS and most recently PIG HUNT. He was 51 years old.

Isaac got his start primarily in the special effects world and worked on several David Cronenberg productions including THE FLY, NAKED LUNCH and eXistenZ. In turn Cronenberg popped up in a cameo for Isaac’s directorial debut JASON X as Dr. Wimmer in the opening scene.

The entire ICONS crew has very fond memories of seeing JASON X together, and I was fortunate enough to meet Isaac at a Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors show where we got to talk with the very gracious and appreciative filmmaker about JASON X. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends.
