Another star has been taken from us just too damned early for our liking as we’re very sad to report that actor Glenn Shadix has passed away well before his time.
Shadix, age 58, was best known to horror fans as the hilarious Otho, the very eccentric interior decorator in the much beloved horror comedy Beetlejuice. He also performed in two other Tim Burton-helmed films, The Nightmare Before Christmas and the Planet of the Apes remake.
According to the Huntsville Times Shadix died this morning following a fall at his Birmingham, Alabama condo.
“He was having mobility problems, and he was in a wheelchair,” Susan Gagne, Shadix’s sister, said. “It looks like he fell and hit his head in the kitchen, and that’s the cause of death.”
We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest condolences to Glenn’s family, friends, and constituents. Thanks for the great memories and smiles, big guy. Save us a comfy spot up above.
Now, once more, in your honor and with style …
