I'm afraid I've only seen Death Wish but I've been meaning to explore more of his work.  RIP.

Borrowed the original Death Wish from the library after I heard this news. Haven't seen it in many years, hoping to get to it sometime in the next couple of days. R.I.P.

The ending of that film still gives me the chills: no spoilers to those who haven't seen it but it is a great ending.  Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
