Tuesday, November 20, 2018 | Poll

Should iconic horror characters be retired when the actor who portrays them retires?

In the first corner, D.D. CROWLEY argues Yes, stating that “characters such as Freddy Krueger and Hellraiser’s Pinhead rely too much on the attitude and persona informed by the actor’s performance”.

In the opposite corner, RM columnist JACOB TRUSSELL counters with No, arguing that “new actors in these roles can give us a fresh appreciation of the character.”
