R.I.P. David Hess (September 19, 1942 October 7, 2011)

R.I.P David Hess



Via Bloody-Disgusting.com

News is slamming Twitter that David Hess, best known to horror fans as "Krug Stillo" in Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left, and star of House on the Edge of the Park and Swamp Thing, has passed away today. He was 69.

Hess was to star in The House on the Edge of the Park Part II and Manson Rising, and more recently can be seen in Smash Cut.

His kids updated his Facebook page today with the following statement:

"It is with great sadness that we have said our last goodbyes to our beloved dad and friend to all. David passed away peacefully last night. The Mad Hessian lives on in his family, friends, and all of his devoted fans. Sing a song in celebration of his life."

Full story forthcoming as details are released. He will be missed.

Terrible news. He runs in my circle of friends. I didn't know him personally (I might've met him once), but I went to many events he was at and the guy was always a fan favorite. I'll miss seeing him with the LHOTL crew at conventions.



I'll throw on Hitch-Hike in his honor tonight.

I'm sure most people already saw this in the horror challenge thread but I'll repost here - a very short (he deserves much longer) write up I did on my blog for David Hess. RIP

edit to add- i don't know if he was a fan of wine but the party i'm going to will have plenty of it so I'll be pouring some out for him tonight.

Sad news. My first memory was seeing him in Swamp Thing at a very young age. RIP

Very sad news. I remember posting on his old Rocket City Records message forum. I think it only had four members, David, one of his sons, another guy, and me. He was kind enough to allow me to interview him for my website. He was an interesting fellow. RIP, David.

Not yet. From the end of that Bloody Disgusting article, it looks like it will be updated if any info comes along.

Oh man this hurts. One of my favourite film memories is of him playing Krug and carving his name into the thorax of a young girl he has just raped.
