R.I.P 'Friday the 13th Part V' Director Danny Steinmann


Savage Streets posterDirector Danny Steinmann passed away yesterday; details of his death are still unknown.  While the director is probably best (or worst) remembered for his addition to the Friday the 13th franchise, Part V: A New Beginning, he was also behind The Unseen, starring Bond girl Barbara Bach, and the Linda Blair exploitation film, Savage Streets.

Steinmann's filmmaking was a tribute to extremes: gore, kills and sex. Especially sex. He will be remembered for his crazy, chaotic movies and additions to the genre. Watch the trailer for Savage Streets where uncoordinated cheerleaders and bad high school girls meet '80s street punks in a "frenzy of savage violence."
