One year ago yesterday, we lost Angus Scrimm.
The Phantasm franchise came to a fitting end last year with Phantasm: Ravager, which featured one of Angus Scrimm’s final performances. Scrimm, who is most known for playing the terrifying Tall Man in the Phantasm series, passed away last January, and in memory of the great horror icon, Gigi Bannister just shared some behind the scenes shots we thought you’d like to see.
Gigi, the longtime wife of Phantasm star Reggie Bannister, was a co-producer of Phantasm: Ravager and she also worked in the special effects departments for both Oblivion and Ravager. She was a close personal friend of Scrimm’s, and she paid touching tribute on Facebook yesterday. Bannister wrote:
On this day, we’re feeling melancholy. So photos we took on set behind the scenes of Phantasm 4 and Phantasm 5 are here. Reggie and I are missing Angus (Rory) Scrimm on this day – the first year of his passing. It is also the 3rd year my daughter Autumn Cerenil-Lee has been missing without word. So, let’s enjoy these moments and happy memories.
The photos take you behind the scenes of the films as well as an Oblivion wrap party and even personal hangouts. Head over to Gigi Bannister’s Facebook for captions and more photos.
