    I just got news via Facebook (confirmed via her official Facebook page) that Karen Black has passed away from her battle with cancer earlier this afternoon.

    RIP Karen Black.

    I was waiting in line at the grocery store a few weeks ago and saw that she was on the cover of one of the celebrity/trash magazines talking about her. I had just revisited Five Easy Pieces the day before and couldn't believe how bad/sick she looked now. I swear, cancer sucks donkey dick.

    I met her in 2002 at a convention and got a signed photo from Trilogy of Terror. Karen Black had many great roles in many great films. Rest in peace. :(

    Her resume is incredible, in terms of frequency of work. She practically had at least one film/role every year since 1966-2013. RIP.

    Very sad news. Had no idea that she and Eileen Brennan had passed away.
    Lost my father last month due to stomach cancer so needless to say this year has totally sucked.
    R.I.P.

    Just horrible news, I've been following Karen's battle with this horrendous disease on her husband's blog, So, so sad.

    An extremely brave and courageous lady.

    RIP
