Selected Filmography

While none of his films were certified ‘great’, they were all entertaining.  From the gory and creative death scenes in Final Destination 2 to the tension of Cellular to the wackiness of the entire film Snakes on a Plane, you could always count on him to deliver an entertaining film for a modest budget.  He will be missed.  Let’s all send out good vibes to his family today.
