RIP Danny Steinmann

We've received word that Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning director Danny Steinmann has passed away. Details are non-existent at this point, but we're inclined to believe Melanie Kinnaman, who posted the news to her Facebook page less than an hour ago.
Dread Central - Rest in Peace Danny Steinmann

RIP, sir. The Unseen and Savage Streets are great, and A New Beginning is the most underappreciated film of the Friday the 13th franchise.
Everyone is entitled to one good scare.

Most unappreciated director of all time indeed. Thank you for the memories gone but not forgotten!

Sad News. Danny Steinmann was one of my Favorite Directors, those 3 Films are among my all time Favorites too!! Friday Part 5 is an unsung Slasher Classic!! One of my Favorite Friday Films of all time and some of the most brutal and creative Death Scenes in the Series!! Savage Streets is an 80's Sleaze Classic, and The Unseen is an overlooked Horror Gem! RIP Danny. You will be missed but you will forever live on through your Films!!

The newest episode of Deadpit has a nice tribute to Danny Steinmann during a call-in portion. Sean Clark, who represented Danny at conventions, and Michael Felsher, who interviewed him on the commentaries for Savage Streets & Friday V, both recall their time working with Danny. You can see the link for this episode in the upper left hand corner at the main page of www.deadpit.com
