Death of director Andre De Toth (House of Wax)

In spite of the fact that he had only one eye, and therefore no depth perception, he directed what is considered to be the best of the 3D movies!

Re: Death of director Andre De Toth (House of Wax)

Don't know which is worse - The bump or the fact that no one responded to his death back in 2002.

Re: Death of director Andre De Toth (House of Wax)

I'll never forget where I was when I found out he had died : sitting in this chair, at this computer, reading this thread, about thirty seconds ago.

Re: Death of director Andre De Toth (House of Wax)

Mods should start warning people for bumping threads with unfunny responses. I actually enjoyed House of Wax (2005)....

He would have been 101 in a couple of weeks.

Re: Death of director Andre De Toth (House of Wax)

What's funny (yeah it's an ad lib but still) is that Lloyd can read that sentence instantly but had extreme difficulties reading earlier in the movie.
