Welcome to This Day in Horror History January 13th!

Robert Stack born on January 13, 1919

For an entire generation, Robert Stack was the creepiest man on television. His voice is synonymous with the classic series “Unsolved Mysteries” telling some of the scariest stories we ever heard.

Frances Sternhagen born on January 13, 1930

She’s one of the finest character actresses of the last century, and she’s been a steady presence in adaptations of Stephen King’s novels for almost 30 years. If you don’t remember her, it’s time to revisit MiseryGolden Years, and most of all the big screen version of The Mist!

William B. Davis born on January 13, 1938

This man might have been one of the most menacing presences we ever experienced in the 1990s as the Cigarette-Smoking Man in “The X-Files”. What you might not know is that his very first film credit was as an ambulance driver in 1983’s film adaptation of The Dead Zone.

Richard Moll born on January 13, 1943

At 6’8″, Richard Moll is almost unmistakable in and out of the genre from House in 1985 to Circus Kane in 2017.

John McNaughton born on January 13, 1950

Horror fans have a lot of reasons to thank John McNaughton, but one of the most important just might be that he wrote and directed Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.

You’ve seen Jwaundace Candece thousands of times and never known it. She’s a stuntwoman who has worked on “The Walking Dead”, “Stranger Things”, “The Originals”, and so many more!
