I always thought that all roads would lead back to Shatner!

Wow. Who comes up with this stuff? It would have never occurred to me to connect horror villians and Levar Burton. First?

What does LaVar think about this?

Someone obviously has too much time on their hands, but somehow I think we’ve all suspected this in some way… Its always the nice ones…

I’ve been telling people for years. Geordi’s visor is a constant feed of B-Grade horror films.

And yet no mention of his TNG co-star Denise Crosby, who starred in “Pet Semetary” (1989); IMO, one of the better Stephen King adaptations.

I can see some creepy horror villain now. Right before he slashes you, he starts humming “Butterfly in the sky, I can go twice as high…”

It may be a simple thing that LaVar is a ÷orror movie fan buff. Just like so many of us. I guess celebrities can be Fans too. Fandom is fun!

You’d already connected LeVar to Katherine Heigl… no real need to keep going to Chucky.
