Carol Lynley – Rest in Peace

Carol Lynley RIPCarol Lynley is another one of those actors that didn’t make a ton of appearances in the horror genre, but when she did, she was always memorable. I think my first memory of her was playing Darren McGavin’s girlfriend in The Night Stalker movie. She made other horror titles like Beware! The Blob (1972), the remake of The Cat and the Canary (1978), and even showing up in Howling VI: The Freaks (1991). Years later, I would discover her in the much sought after The Shuttered Room (1967) as well as Bunny Lake is Missing (1965). She passed away on Sept. 3rd from a heart attack. 

Lynley started acting on Broadway when she was only 15 and went on from there. She had such a recognizable face and was always fun to see on screen. She will be missed but not forgotten.
