To encourage Jason X director

You may have never actually heard of Jim Isaac, but if your a fan of horror, you’ve seen his work. He started out his career doing creature effects for films like Return of the Jedi and Gremlins. He’s worked on Cronenbergs  Fly, House 2 and many other films. He directed movies like Jason X and Skinwalkers.

Jason X is one of my favorite Friday the 13th movies, right up there with The final Chapter and Freddy vs. Jason. I really love the comic book feel to it, I love that it knows when to take itself seriously and when to go camp. It’s got one of the best kills in a Jason movie ever (Head shattering towards the beginning).

Mr. Isaac is currently undergoing treatments for blood cancer. I’ve got two friends who are cancer surviors, and I know how rough this can be. His wife mentioned that he really appreaciates teh fan mail he gets and let’s face it, a positive attitude really can make a big diffrence in a recovery of this sort.

If you’d like to send Mr. Isaac a letter letting him know how much you like his movies, or a movie he’s been involved in, you can mail it to this address :
