Aww man, this is sad.

Dick Van Dyke was set to make an appearance at Manhattan's 92nd Street Y, where he was gonna be presented with the organization's first Lifetime Achievement Award for Bettering Humanity through Comedy, but after his rep told Entertainment Tonight that he can't go due to an illness, we became worried!!

Van Dyke's rep said:

"[Dick has] fatigue and lack of sleep resulting from symptoms of a yet-to-be diagnosed neurological disorder."

The 87-year-old comedian is currently staying in his Malibu home with his wife Arlene, and all we can hope is that he gets better.

Stay strong, Dick!

Spanish Horror Director Jess Franco Dies At 82 After Suffering A Stroke

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

spanish horror director jesus franco dies at 82 after suffering stroke

The horror movie genre lost a big name today as spanish director Jesus "Jess" Franco died at the age of 82 after suffering a stroke.

Jess' film career spans over 50 years, starting in the mid 1950's and continuing up until his death. In that time, he has written and directed nearly 200 films.

You might not be familiar with too much of his work, as none of his films received any mainstream success. But his 1962 breakthrough film The Awful Dr. Orlof earned him a cult following and cemented his place in the exploitation horror genre.

In addition to dealing with horror, many of Jess' films also earned X-ratings for their erotic nature, which can be seen in classics such as Venus in Furs and Vampyros Lesbos.

In 2009, he was given the lifetime achievement award at the annual Goya Film Awards in Madrid, Spain.

Rest in peace, Jess.
