R.I.P. Gunnar Hansen who is perhaps best known as Leatherface, and again fuck (pardon my language) cancer. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/4173e3fea4c34926a3ab0d247b1b3001/gunnar-hansen-killer-texas-chain-saw-massacre-dies
Full respect to you Nik, his (now) final album Blackstar was only released three days ago ending 50 years of his career ..... and although this is supposed to be a horror genre RIP only thread, I think we can give this musician/innovater a sneaky big thank you for his performance in Tony Scott's vampire film, The Hunger ...
Everyone is dying, and I hope they don't come back as Deadites. Although a Deadite version of David Bowie would be pretty interesting, and he would be well dressed. I had no clue Rickman was sick either. Such a sad week.
R.I.P. Larry Drake aged 66 .... most people will remember him from TV's L.A. Law but Deadites will know him for his work in Sam Raimi's 'Darkman' and perhaps also one of my favourite 70's horror flics, 'Dark Night Of The Scarecrow' ..
