Rest in Pease: Leonardo CiminoThe world became a little less fun today as The Monster Squad has lost one of its own. We’re sorry to report that Leonardo Cimino, known best to horror fans as the “Scary German Guy”, has passed on.

According to The New York Times, Cimino died on March 3rd at his home in Woodstock, New York. He was 94.

On television he appeared in the original version of the science-fiction mini-series “V” and in shows like “Naked City,” “Kojak” and “Law & Order.” His many movies included Dune, Monsignor, The Freshman and Moonstruck.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Cimino’s family, friends, and constituents. You will be missed, sir. Thanks for all that you gave and for reminding us that there will always be time for pie. Godspeed.
