Rest in Peace: Toshiharu Ikeda

It’s always sad to report on the passing of people taken before their time. It’s even sadder when those taken are responsible for their own deaths. Evil Dead Trap was a strange little Japanese film that garnered a lot of notoriety here in the West. Sadly, the director of it is no longer with us.

According to Japanese websites Hochi Yomiuri and Ameblo, filmmaker Toshiharu Ikeda has been found dead, believed to have committed suicide by drowning.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Ikeda’s friends, family, and constituents. Arigatō, sir. May you find the peace in death that eluded you in life. You will be missed.

Thanks to DC reader Dick Winchester for the heads-up.

Rest in Peace: Toshiharu Ikeda
