On this day in Horror History, Dennis Lee Hopper passed away. A brilliant and celebrated actor for more than half a century, he gave the world some of the most adored roles in cinematic history. Hopper’s resume gifted us all such films as Apocalypse Now (1979), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986), Waterworld (1995), Land of the Dead (2005), and hundreds of cult movies and award winning performances. Passing away just 10 days after his 74th birthday, Dennis Hopper will forever be remembered for the brilliance that he lent to every character he ever epitomized and a legacy that will never be shadowed.
“I am just a middle-class farm boy from Dodge City and my grandparents were wheat farmers. I thought painting, acting, directing and photography was all part of being an artist. I have made my money that way. And I have had some fun. It's not been a bad life.” –Dennis Hopper

Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
I will dance in the sun wearing wildflowers in my hair.
