The Montreal HorrorFest, part of the Montreal ComicCon, is just a week away and, as it was last year and the year before, the fest will be a showcase for top celebrity guests and must-see genre films.
Just some of the guests announced thus far: Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Kane Hodder (the Friday the 13th and Hatchet series), George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Penny Dreadful), Michael Rooker (Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, The Walking Dead), and freakin’ Ron Pearlman (too many to list, but let’s go with…um…that eighties TV version of Beauty and the Beast with Linda Hamilton. Why not)!
The ComicCon itself features a ton of non-horror but still-great guests, including John Barrowman and David Ramsey (both of Arrow), Gwendoline Christie and Jason Momoa (both of Game of Thrones, with the former in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII and the latter in Batman vs Superman), and Kevin Smith (Clerks, plus a bunch of overrated stuff I couldn’t care less about…BUT, great speaker, so go see him for that)!
Check the full list of guests here.
As I’ve done the last couple years, I’ll be hosting screenings as part of the HorrorFest. I’ve checked out several trailers and can’t wait to see what the fest brings to Montreal this year. If you’re wondering, the films will be screening upstairs, not on the main floor, in rooms 518A and 518C. Screenings take place all day, starting on Friday, July 3rd, till Sunday, July 5, and they are all free with your pass.
See you all there!
