If Halloween means monsters and partying, then a Famous Monsters Party is the place to be.
San Jose Convention Center will be hosting the FAMOUS MONSTERS HALLOWEEN BASH, Oct 27-29, 2017, and Cosmic-Con has hit the ground running with the guest roster, announcing stars from HELLRAISER (Doug Bradley, aka Pinhead), GREMLINS (Zach Galligan), and RE-ANIMATOR (Jeffrey Combs), as well as Richard Brake from GAME OF THRONES and Jeff Daniel Phillips of HBO’s WESTWORLD. Original Scream Queen Adrienne Barbeau (SWAMP THING) will be there, along with legendary stunt man Tom Morga, who has played three different slashers on screen (Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, and Leatherface). More guest announcements are forthcoming.
“Halloween has become the holiday when people just kick back and have fun,” says Cosmic-Con Producer and Famous Monsters Publisher Philip Kim. “There’s none of the stress of other traditional holidays; it’s just one big masquerade ball, and that’s exactly the vibe that Famous Monsters is going for in San Jose.”
In addition to celebrity guests, vendors, and artists, Cosmic-Con promises to bring virtual reality into the mix, debuting original VR material based on comics from American Gothic Press, Famous Monsters’ publishing division. “Virtual reality is at the cutting edge of entertainment,” says Kim, “and quality genre content is in high demand. AGP’s original horror properties have enabled us to develop our own.”
Clearly, there are all kinds of new ways to haunt a Halloween crowd.
