‘Day of the Dead’ actor, Joseph Pilato has passed away

More sad news from the horror and genre world today. Joesph Pilato has passed away in his sleep. He was best known as playing Captain Rhodes in George Romero’s Day of the Dead film. Pilato played a ton of small parts in a slew of 80’s and 90’s films. Including Knightriders, Terminal Force, and even a Pulp Fiction. As I mentioned before, he is best known for playing the power hungry Capitan Rhodes in Day of the Dead. His death scene in Day of the Dead was one of the most (and still is) impressive examples of practical effects in a zombie film. Check out a few clips of his below.
