He removed the headstones but not the bodies leading to an epic suburban haunting as Mr. Teague in Poltergeist. As Frank in Return of the Living Dead, he gave “Tarman’s” canister a fateful slap, releasing a toxic gas that brought the dead back to life. Tonight, we’re sadly getting word that veteran actor James Karen as passed away at the age of 94.

His Return of the Living Dead costar Linnea Quigley Tweeted her memories of the Karen:

Lauded film critic Leonard Maltin also took to social media, revealing he will be writing Karen’s eulogy:

All of us here at Dread Central send our sincerest condolences to Karen’s fans, friends, and family. He was hugely loved in the horror community and will be sorely missed.
