2011 Festival of Fear Panels — Details Now Online

It’s almost time for Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear again here in Toronto, and you know what that means–organizer FanExpo’s usual patience-testing parade of sweaty spandex, ungodly lineups, tweens with massive cardboard swords, ridiculous price gouging, awkward celebrity encounters and more fun, fun, fun!

For those who don’t know, I’m proud to have been a regular contributor to Rue Morgue magazine for the last seven (eight?) years, where I mostly focus on writing about classic horror films (and the occasional Canadian one too). Part of that ultra-glamorous writing lifestyle involves being at our annual convention at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and this year I’ll be hosting two panels that fans of spooky CanCon might want to check out–hope to see you there!

Note that the MY BLOODY VALENTINE panel, previously scheduled Thursday, has now been moved to Sunday.

MY BLOODY VALENTINE 30TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION — August 28, 2pm
Celebrate 30 years of Canada’s classic slasher film with director GEORGE MIHALKA and cast members LORI HALLIER, PAUL KELMAN, CYNTHIA DALE, NEIL AFFLECK and ALF HUMPHREYS.

REMEMBERING FRIGHTENSTEIN — August 26, 5pm
Join VICTORIA PRICE and producer/co-star MITCH MARKOWITZ as we take a walk down memory lane of The Hilarious House of Frightenstein, Canada’s legendary monster kid’s show starring Vincent Price and Billy Van.
