[glow=red,2,300][/glow]In the last week or so, we've lost two horror movie legends ..... Dick Smith, make-up F/X pioneer and guru to the industry and now sadly Marilyn Burns who played heroine Sally Hardesty in the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre  :sad

R.I.P. to both of you and thanks for all the scares X

I'm dedicating this thread to future losses from our beloved genre.

I'm still sad about Marilyn's sudden death; I know so many people who met her at cons and said she was the sweetest.

It struck me hard but I feel comforted by the fact that her portrayal of Sally Hardesty will continue to inspire and scare and amaze people and that she is immortalized in that role.

So sad about the loss of both of them.

Just to note, Robert Z'dar's family is having trouble paying expenses for his funeral and they have a go fund me page up that's getting close to goal, for those who'd like to contribute.

You're welcome :)

Apparently they have enough to cover burial expenses now and have up a stretch goal to get him his own marker, versus sharing one with his parents.

Christopher Lee is a true legend in every sense of the word, and will be missed dearly.
