Before They Were Stars: Mitch Pileggi in “Return of the Living Dead Part II”

Alas, Shocker proved to be so silly that all hopes of turning into a hit horror franchise faded away and Horace Pinker did not become the successor to Freddy Krueger. Anyway, a year beforehand, Pileggi had a brief brush with another popular horror franchise when he had a small role as an army sergeant inĀ Return of the Living Dead Part II.
