He wrote and made a few sci-fi flicks...you know, small things like "Alien" and "Total Recall" among many others. He will be missed.

Coincidentally, I rewatched his 1985 Lifeforce a few days ago. It's monumentally silly from start to finish yet possessive of a dizzying craziness that's quite enveloping.

It was a few years ago, but there's an interview with Mr. O'Bannon on the site while he was in my home town for the Victoria Film Festival:

And let's not forget that he also scripted the exciting "Blue Thunder".

RIP...He has given touch to many sci-fi flicks and will be missed by all sci-fi genre fans.
