Horror cinema’s most iconic Slashers tear their way through second annual Falls Horror Fest (Niagara Falls, Ont.) : The Falls Horror Fest an incomparable interactive experience as part of the Niagara Falls Comic Con has just announced its “Haunted Killers of Cinema” theme. A spine tingling line up that will surely create an insomniac of even the most jaded of audiences includes: Tyler Mane (which you may recall from playing the ominous Michael Myers in each of Rob Zombie’s Halloween I and II as well as Sabretooth from the first X-Men film), Derek Mears (who adapted a more contemporary edge to the blood curdling Jason Vorhees in the 2009 Friday the 13th remake), R.A. Milailoff (portraying Leatherface from the 3rd installment of the cult classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre) as well as Tony Todd (perhaps most recognizable as the hook wielding ghost from Candy Man as well as the eerie mortician William Bludworth of the Final Destination series).
“We’re very excited to have four men are some of the most recognizable faces in horror,” says Falls Horror Fest organizer James Ponce. “With our event now growing to three days, it only made sense for us to expand and add more horror celebrities and attractions. We’re excited for horror fans to see the exhibitors, rare movie props, memorabilia, artists, movie posters, special effects items, and participate in the free Q&A sessions.”
Fans will also get an up close and personal look in the first ever Canadian convention appearance of the infamous green goblin head, the original film prop from Stephen King’s 1986 movie Maximum Overdrive. Tim Shockey, a southern Ohio collector has recently restored the eight foot spectacle to its original glory. Horror aficionados will no question cringe in memory of the glowing red eyes upon the hellacious transport truck and flock to the once in a lifetime opportunity to pose for photos in this unique memento experience.
Making his second Falls Horror Fest appearance is make up/special effects designer Paul Jones. His work has provoked awe inducing spectacles from the first two Hellraiser films, to the more recent Resident Evil volumes. Paul is actively working on the Space network series hit Orphan Black and has just wrapped up production with SyFy television show Defiance.
Also in attendance will be Fangoria editor in chief Chris Alexander whose latest film Queen of Blood will be soon unleashed on the film festival circuit.
