Wow. I loved "Exorcist III" and "The Ninth Configuration" (even the novel). He will be missed, but his films are still alive.

RIP.

He has a rare distinction in South African censorship history as both the book and the film of The Exorcist were banned here for many years.

    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.
