We have some very sad news to share with our readers. David A. Prior, a filmmaker perhaps best known for such movies as Killer Workout, Lost Platoon, and the beloved cult flick Deadly Prey, among many others, has passed away. Prior had recently celebrated his 59th birthday.

According to reports, Prior passed away over the weekend following a “battle with failing health.” The news of the director’s death first broke on Facebook, and it didn’t take long for friends and fans to celebrate Prior’s life and work. It’s clear the man and his movies were loved by many.

On Monday (August 17), Art James wrote on Facebook, “Hey everyone, Ted has asked me to pass on to all of David’s friends and acquaintances that he thanks you sincerely for all the kind words that have come his way about his dear brother and our friend David Prior. David passed away over the weekend after a long battle with failing health. We don’t know the official cause yet but will soon. For now, Ted and Jodi send their love and deepest thanks to you all.
