Rest in Peace Film Legend Michael Gough

Michael GoughToday we’ve lost a true icon. A man who was whipping ass in the film industry longer than most of us have been alive. It is with an extremely heavy heart that we report Michael Gough has passed away at the ripe old age of 94.

The film legend worked up until age 92 and has appeared in dozens of movies throughout his decades long career, including his most celebrated role as Alfred Pennyworth in the original Batman movie franchise launched by Tim Burton. More of his genre-specific credits include Sleepy Hollow, Trog, Konga, The Skull, Horror Hospital, and the still frightening after all of these years The Legend of Hell House.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to not only offer our deepest condolences to Michael’s friends, family, and constituents but also thank and revere the man for all the movie memories he has given us. You were one of the great ones, my friend. Godspeed.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    A real class act. RIP.

    I grew up with those Batman movies, and was always pleased when I saw him in other things throughout the years. It’s good to know Jesus’ Batcave is in good hands.

    RIP good sir.
