Here’s some (more) sad news that we missed earlier in the week: Rod Daniel, the director of Teen Wolf, has died, at the age of 73.

Daniel’s directorial career also covered films such as Like Father Like Son, K-9, Home Alone 4 and Beethoven’s 2nd. He notably was quite dismissive of his own work in a later interview he gave, telling reporter Christopher Borrelli that “I hold no illusions. I wouldn’t buy a ticket to any of my movies”.

“It's going to sound like a cop-out, but when I retired, I never once thought about it. Does that answer your question? I don't rank with the greats. I made these [expletive] movies because I could, and because they paid me a great deal of money. Which is not to say I didn't believe in what I did”. 

Yet Rod Daniel still made films that many enjoyed, and certainly for lots of us growing up, Teen Wolf was and is a favourite. And it can't just be us that watched K-9 a lot as well.

Rod Daniel died over the weekend, and is survived by his wife and two children.

Rest in peace.
