It’s been well documented that 2016 was a year that claimed the lives of many true icons of the entertainment business, and here in the horror world, one of those huge blows was the death of the iconic Angus Scrimm. Best known for playing the Tall Man in the Phantasm franchise, Scrimm passed away at the age of 89 last January, but he leaves behind one more movie.
Much like last year’s Phantasm: Ravager, the upcoming film Dances with Werewolves is unfortunately being released posthumously, and it’s home to Angus Scrimm’s final performance. Courtesy of The Phantasm Archives, we’ve learned that Scrimm plays a vagrant named Neumann in the film, which will screen on January 27th at Santa Fe’s Jean Cocteau Cinema.
The cast also includes Aqueela Zoll, Tatiana DeKhytar, Omar Paz Trujillo, Lauren Parkinson, Jim Tavare, and Jane Park Smith.
Check out the trailer below.
