If you've read a Jack Ketchum book, there's a good chance you'll never forget it. Ketchum, who was mentored by Psycho author Robert Bloch early in his career, is a household name to fans the world over for his disturbing work in the horror space, his horror novels adapted into a handful of films that are equally unforgettable.

Today we're very sad to report that Jack Ketchum, whose real name was Dallas Mayr, has passed away at the age of 71. The sad news comes to us courtesy of actress Pollyanna McIntosh, who has starred in three films based on Ketchum's characters.
