Bob Clark

Born: 1939-08-05 - Died: 2007-04-04
Cause of Death:
Car Accident

Death Summary: Bob and his 22-year-old son Ariel were both killed in a car accident on the pacific coast highway in L.A. This was the result of a head-on collision with a drunk driver named Hector Velazuez-Nava.

Clark had been readying a production of a remake to his original film "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" at the time of his demise. He was 67 years old.

Who was Bob Clark : Benjamin "Bob" Clark was an American film writer and director, who is probably best known for his classic "A Christmas Story", which traditionally gets played for 24 hours straight on television around the holiday season each year.

Clark was also the man behind the classic teen sex comedy Porky's and it's sequel: Porky's II: The Next Day.

What many may not realize about Clark however, is that he also had a love for the horror genre, having directed the original versions of Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things and Black Christmas, which is a time-honored classic to fans of the genre. He also produced its remake.

One of Clark's lesser-known gems is the Vietnam war themed horror film Deathdream (aka Dead of Night), which is sort of like Born on the 4th of July meets Night of the Living Dead.
