Angus Scrimm - RIP

Angus Scrimm has died. He was 89 years old.

Scrimm is best known among horror fans for playing The Tall Man in the Phantasm series, including an upcoming fifth entry coming out later this year. Playing the giant intergalactic alien dressed up as a menacing mortician, Scrimm brought much terror in the cult horror franchise, as he stole dead bodies to create his dwarf servants and snuffed out intruders and pests with his drill-equipped flying metal balls. But it was the disturbingly quiet moments that truly made him a scary presence, including the famed ending of the original where he bellows out "BOY!!!"

He will be missed.
