Farewell to The Tallman, Angus Scrimm. Summed up nicely at MonsterZero NJ’s blog post.
Angus Scrimm (Lawrence Rory Guy) 1926-2016
Today, it is with a heavy horror heart that I announce the passing of horror film legend Angus Scrimm, at age 89. Renown to horror fans worldwide as Phantasm’s Tall Man, he has terrified and delighted us with his legendary performances as one of horror’s greatest icons for over four decades with a 5th Phantasm film on the way! MonsterZero NJ’s Movie Madhouse wishes him a tearful farewell and RIP! Scrimm also appeared in genre flicks like Subspecies, The Off Season and Don Coscarelli’s John Dies At The End and appeared on the TV show Alias.
