Karen Black passed away recently and as usual the news media messed things up as shown by the obituary in the August 9th Chicago Sun-Times. The paper's piece focused on Blacks few major motion picture credits. As everyone familiar with Black's career knows, it was in made for TV movies and low budget movies that she really shined.
Black starred in such classic flicks as Burnt Offerings, Killer Fish, Killing Heat, The Hooker Cult Murders & Trilogy of Terror. To be sure, Black also had her share of turkeys such as Airport 1975, Capricorn One, House of 1000 Corpses, Invaders from Mars & The Day of the Locust.
Karen Black most definitely will be missed.
