RIP: John McGarr

RIP: John McGarrThe loss of life can be all the more tragic when the reason behind a loved one being taken from us is absolutely senseless. Such is the case with up and coming actor/producer John McGarr.

While his name may not jump out at you right away, we’re confident that should he have been allowed just a little more time here, it would have become very familiar — and in the hearts of horror fans, probably household. John McGarr was just getting started in the horror biz with his brother, Eben, but the duo already had two quality indie features under their belts with both Sick Girl and the upcoming classic horror movie homage House of the Wolf Man.

On March 25th while walking to breakfast during the HorrorHound convention weekend in Indianapolis, at 10:30 am McGarr was struck down by a drunk driver.

At this time we here at Dread Central would like to offer our most sincerest of condolences to John’s family, friends, and constituents. It was great meeting you on the road the few times that we did, my brother. You’ll be missed immensely. Godspeed.

    Tragic news indeed. My sympathies to his family and friends.

    I’m so over drunk drivers. At least five times a week here at work (security officer on an overnight shift) I see some intoxicated dipshit hurtling through our community at roughly seventy miles an hour. As part of their punishment, anyone who causes an injury or death while driving drunk should be forced to have a permanent tattoo inked across their foreheads which reads “I’m a stupid asshole.”

      Cinemascribe, I’d be there holding the needle. How can anyone be so stupid?
