Monster-Mania 6 is set to descend on the sleepy little town of Cherry Hill, NJ this August 25th through the 27th, bringing with it the sort of carnage only our readers can sink their teeth into!
Attendees of this month’s gore appreciation fest will come face to face with a whopping EIGHT former Jasons from Friday the 13th… from the first (Ari Lehman) to the most infamous (Kane Hodder) to the biggest, badest, and latest model (Ken Kirzinger). What is Jason without campers to chase? Knowing this, MM adds a handful of machete fodder to the lineup including Erin Gray, Adrienne King, and two newcomers to the con experience, Dana Kimmell and Kimberly Beck. Cult favorite Return of the Living Dead gets its due respect as Trash (Linnea Quigley), Ernie (Don Calfa), and Tina (Beverly Randolph) join the show.
How do you top all that? How about a Lost Boys Reunion?!! Meet and greet BOTH Coreys (Feldman and Haim), Jamison Newlander (completing the Frog Brothers), and vamp fashion victims Billy Wirth (Dwayne), Brooke McCarter (Paul), and Chance Michael Corbit (Laddie). Don’t start crying about Kiefer…he’s outrun the shadow of Dark City and gets the big bucks now.
Nightmare on Elm Street continues to be listed as many horror fiends’ all-time favorite movie series so Monster-Mania brings out the man himself, Robert Englund! Joining Freddy will be Ronee Blakley (Nancy’s mom) and Dream Warriors alums Ken Sagoes (Kincaid), Jennifer Rubin (Taryn), and Rodney Eastman (Joey).
So it’s obvious this show is jam packed with reunions, but you’re still screaming for more blood for your buck? How about Devil’s Rejects stars Sid Haig (Spaulding if I have to remind you!), Michael Berryman (Clevon), and Leslie Easterbrook (Mama Firefly). Also appearing are the ethereal Angela Bettis (May), farm boy killer Courtney Gaines (Children of the Corn), Jigsaw’s right hand woman Shawnee Smith (Saw), and the man who chews bubblegum and kicks ass, Rowdy Roddy Piper!
Like all great horror cons, Monster-Mania 6 is packed with features and events. Attend panels to get the inside stories on the making of your favorite films by the people who lived to tell the tale. Stay up late to catch the Rocky Horror Picture Show, complete with a live cast! After meeting the stars, re-live your favorite moments with them by watching the films they made so great. If you’ve still got any money left, hit the dealer’s room and pick up that gruesome item you’ve been hunting for or the evil trinket you never knew existed. You can even meet the creators of Living Dead Dolls back there!
“But what if I already showed up broke…because I’m punk rock that way?” you ask. Well, Dread Central will be waiting for you right in the entry with a table full of freebies, contests for killer collectibles, and even the creators of creepy comic Sullengrey ready to zombify you into immortality!
Make sure to clear your calendar on August 25th through 27th, and head down to Cherry Hill for Monster-Mania 6! All the details you could ever want on the show are right here, so get clicking!
