In Memoriam: Antonia Bird

antonia birdBorn 1959 in London, England.

Died October 24, 2013.

Antonia Bird, film and television director, has passed away at the age of 54.  No cause of death has been revealed.

Antonia Bird came to my attention with the wonderful film Ravenous, starring her longtime collaborator,  the actor Robert Carlyle.  Bird was the third director attached to the film.  Filming began under another director who left the production.  The film was taken over by another director who left as well.  At the urging of Carlyle, Bird came on and crafter one of my favorite horror films of all time.

So, in the honor of Miss Bird, let us all watch Ravenous for Halloween and remember this prolific filmmaker.  Let us all send good vibe to her family at this time and let them know she will not be forgotten.
