In Memoriam: Remembering Our Recently Fallen Horror Heroes



SHOCK’s Kalyn Corrigan remembers the actors the horror world lost this past year.

Every year, the Academy Awards reserve a moment during their ceremony to show a segment called “In Memoriam”, which honors filmmakers who have passed away since the last reception. As touching as the gesture is, it seems that more often than not, many horror icons are left out of this little celebration of life. Therefore, I’ve decided to compile of list of important cinematic figures who are known for their contributions to the horror genre, who have passed on recently, so that we genre fans can pay tribute to our fallen comrades just as all other fans of film pay tribute to theirs.
