James Karen, Actor in 'Poltergeist' and So Much More, Dies at 94
Oh man, this one kills me. I've been a ROTLD fan since I was way too young (7, 8?), so this is terrible news for me. Glad he had a long life at least.
I actually just watched the Mystery Science Theater version of a movie he was in called Time Walker (titled The Being From Another Planet on the episode) the other day.
Whoa. I had just finished seeing him in The Willies.
Sorry to hear this, haven't seen very many of his movies but I've always enjoyed him in The Return of the Living Dead and just the other day was pleasantly surprised to see him in The Unborn.
For me, he will always be the face of Pathmark:
But, yeah, he was alright in that zombie movie I guess.
Dang, just watched Return of the Living Dead today...RIP
Legend. RIP, sir.
Loved to hate him ever since Poltergeist. A great character actor. RIP
RiP thank you for the memories will never forget you.
One of those great character actors that most people couldn't put a name to. He improved every project he worked on. Rest In Peace.
I'll never forget when watching Return of the Living Dead for the first time. My reaction, hey it's the Pathmark guy! It wasn't meant to be an insult, just back then that's all I knew him from. Turns out he was in tons of TV shows playing bit parts, etc...
Still to this day when I think of ROLD, the first thing I think of is him and his scenes, before any other parts of the movie. Before the zombies, gore, etc... Just the truth.
Wow, I totally forgot he was the Pathmark guy! He is easily my favorite character in ROTLD. Rest in peace, sir.
What an age! Loved him in ROTLD.
Rest in piece.
Wow, I didn't realize just how old he was. ROTLD has been one of my favorite horror films since as far back as I can remember. Sad news, and so close to Halloween.
James Karen will never be forgotten. Too many great roles to list here...
