What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie? ROGER JACKSON Making Convention Debut March 2014!
I sat at my computer on Tuesday night eagerly awaiting for guest announcements from NJ based MonsterMania convention. Shortly before 8:00, the announcements began & they certainly didn’t disappoint. Though the show is in March, we were treated to a heaping helping of names.
Fans of “Dark Shadows” will be delighted to see that Lara Parker & Kathryn Leigh Scott are among the first names from the classic TV series to be attending. Perhaps though, you’re not into vampires & would like to be someone’s victim? You won’t have to say his name 5 times in a mirror to get him to appear; Tony Todd makes his return to Cherry Hill, NJ & will be joined with fellow “Candyman” co-stars Virginia Madsen and Rusty Schwimmer for their first MonsterMania. Speaking of Tony Todd, if you live in the Philadelphia area, you know that it’s been pouring outside the past day or so. These next guests will remind you that it can’t rain all the time. Fans of “The Crow” were excited to see Bai Ling & Sofia Shinas join Tony Todd for a mini Crow reunion. It should be noted that this is Sofia Shinas’ (Shelly Webster) 1st convention appearance ever, so make sure you add her to any Crow items you need signed.
Fans of “Cujo” rejoiced when a requested reunion of stars from the film was announced later in the evening as well. Returning in March to MonsterMania will be Dee Wallace Stone. Joining her will be the film’s director, Lewis Teague, & Danny Pintauro. This is the 1st ever convention appearance for Danny Pintauro as well.
But perhaps the announcement that excited me the most. In 1996, a film called “Scream” spawned a franchise that helped to revitalize the horror genre & made people wonder exactly just who was on the other end of the phone call. After MANY requests for the man who provided the iconic voice of Ghost Face in the films, voice actor Roger Jackson will be making his 1st convention appearance ever at MonsterMania!
It all goes down at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ from March 7th – 9th, 2014. For more information, keep checking www.monstermania.net, “Like” them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/pages/Monster-Mania-Convention/46231714170, or follow on Twitter at @MonsterManiaCon
