Mad Monster Party Convention
Now here’s some good news! Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, one of the most fan-adored monster movies of all time, will be shown in a never-before-seen three-hour long director’s cut at the Mad Monster Party horror convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday, March 24th, 2012.
From the Press Release:
In addition to this special rare event screening, Nightbreed stars Craig Sheffer and Anne Bobby (marking their very first convention appearance) will be in attendance for a Q&A session following the screening and will be signing autographs in the dealer room throughout the weekend. Mark Miller, Hellraiser comic writer and Nightbreed expert, will also be on hand to introduce the film on behalf of Clive Barker and share some insights into Barker’s vision for the future of Nightbreed.
Join Mad Monster Party to champion the cause and be a part of the growing movement to give the director’s cut of this beloved film its much deserved special edition DVD/Blu-ray release. We’re doing our part by sharing this cut and conducting panels which will explain the great opportunities fans will have to offer their support. Many thanks to Nightbreed distributor and owner Morgan Creek for giving us their blessing to show the film. They will be watching, with interest, for audience and fan reaction so let’s show them how much we want this to happen.
Once again, THIS VERSION HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE. Pulling from three separate cuts of the film, and working closely with Nightbreed’s original director of photography Robin Vidgeon, Clive Barker’s team at Seraphim Films has assembled a composite that will be the most complete version of the film that has ever been shown.
Come show your support. As a work in progress, it is possible that you may never again get to see this version of Clive Barker’s masterpiece Nightbreed as it was always meant to be seen.
In addition to this exciting Nighbreed screening, come meet movie stars RUTGER HAUER (Blade Runner, The Hitcher, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman Begins), BRAD DOURIF (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Exorcist 3, Child’s Play, Lord of the Rings, Deadwood), LINDA BLAIR (The Exorcist, Savage Streets), ACE FREHLEY (legendary rock guitarist) DEE WALLACE (E.T., The Howling, Cujo, Critters, The Frighteners), ROWDY RODDY PIPER (wrestling legend, They Live), MARKY RAMONE (The Ramones), WILLIAM KATT (“The Greatest American Hero”, Carrie), RICHARD MOLL (‘Bull’ from “Night Court”, House), ANGUS SCRIMM (Phantasm), and many, MANY more well known fiendish faces including some rare and first-time guests that fans have been demanding for years like the one and only Frankenhooker: PATTY MULLEN, who will appear in her iconic character makeup!
The Mad Monster Party is a horror convention with a difference. While other shows install a generic event in a random city, Mad Monster is building their show from the inside out. With the support of local Charlotte organizations like the “Visit Charlotte” tourist board and business leaders like Kevin Blanchfield and his Haunted Mill, Phillip Morris of Morris Costume, etc., Mad Monster Party is putting down roots and committing to a partnership with the Charlotte community to provide a unique convention that is fresh, theatrical, and offers visiting international fans a destination for years to come.
One-day and weekend Mad Monster Party tickets are available as well as a limited number of R.I.P. passes (for Really Intense Partyers). Among the perks RIP Pass holders enjoy are: early entry to the dealer room each day, access to the exclusive RIP Lounge, a walk- through of the Haunted Mill with celebrity guests, autograph guarantees, special reserved seating for events, free admission to special off-site events, a Mad Monster Party swag bag, and much more!
Come join us at the Mad Monster Party for an unforgettable weekend of family-fun horror entertainment among the stars and artists who make horror movies and the fans that love them!
