Paul Kelman – Rest in Peace

With all the slasher films that came out in the late ’70s and early ’80s, one of my favorites has always been My Bloody Valentine (1981). Not sure if it was because the location where the killer was stalking was different than all the summer camp ones, or that the killer looked so damn scary in all that miner getup, but either way, I think the film worked, and still works, even today. But we recently lost a cast member from that memorable film, Paul Kelman, who played T.J., one of the minors stuck down deep in the earth with a killer with a pitchfork!

While he only played in one other horror title, Black Roses (1988), he will still be remembered from fans, not only because of that role, but also his relationship with his fans. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family during this difficult time.

  1. Very sad loss.paul was so excellent in my bloody valentine and helped that film attain cult status, which it truly deserves. One of the better slasher films from that era. I was friends with him on Facebook and he was wonderful to all the fans. He is really going to be missed. Rip.
