Howard Witt passed away on June 21st, at the age of 85. May he rest in peace.

He will always be most famous to me as the title character of Mr. Boogedy (aka William Hanover, prior to becoming a ghost in the film) from Mr. Boogedy (1986) and its sequel Bride of Boogedy (1987).

That first film caused me weeks of nightmares at the age of 4, but I was over that by the time of the sequel...which I had my grandmother record on her VCR, along with a family friend, and the one at this house at the time. So in case one failed, the other could get it. (While I watched it as it aired in a hotel, in Nashville, on the way back from a shopping trip in case everyone else messed up; power went out on the first two VCR's, but the family friend got it from what I recall.)

Those two movies could be part of why I fell in love with the horror genre.
