R.I.P. John Peakes, Professor Knowby from ‘Evil Dead 2,’ Has Passed Away

Professor Raymond Knowby is an integral character in the Evil Dead universe, as he’s the one who discovered both the Necronomicon and the Kandarian Dagger; he’s also responsible for bringing both objects to America. Of course, he’s the man who recorded the tape that Ash and friends play when they arrive at the cabin, kick-starting the horror saga that continues to this day.

Today we’re sad to report that Evil Dead 2 star John Peakes, who played Professor Raymond Knowby in the 1987 horror-comedy sequel, passed away this week. He was 83 years old.
