betsypalmerfridaythe13thbannerThe horror world and Eddie’s 31 Days Of Halloween are saddened to learn that the legendary Betsy Palmer has passed away at the age of 88. The Character actress passed away in a Conneticut Hospice care center this past Friday. She tarred in various shows like Lux Video Theater, Inner Sanctum, and The Web, but it’s her rejection of he role as Mrs. Voorhees that had us all capitatved. She once said this about the film, “What a piece of shit! Nobody is ever going to see this thing. What an awful thing this is.” It was said that she too the role in order to be able to purchase a car. She did eventually embrace the role later on in her life after realizing how much love Horror fans had for her. Check it out here in the documentary His Name Was Jason and check out my review of the film here. She will definitely be missed. R.I.P. Betsy Palmer (1926-2015).
