“My granddad was a priest in Trinidad. He used to tell us, ‘When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth’.”
One of the baddest lines in horror history spoken in one of the baddest movies in horror history by one of the baddest men in horror history. The line is spoken by Mr. Ken Foree in his first starring role as Peter in George A. Romero’s 1978 zombie classic Dawn of the Dead. He again spoke the iconic line in the film’s 2004 remake because we’re sure that no one could deliver it better. Ken also played the unforgettable Charlie Altamont in The Devil’s Rejects.
CT HorrorFest is thrilled to announce Ken Foree as a featured guest on September 16th, 2017.
Films: Dawn of the Dead (1978 & 2004), Knightriders, From Beyond, The Devil’s Rejects, Rob Zombie’s Halloween.
In 1985, the folks in charge of the Friday the 13th franchise could not foresee a future where Jason Voorhees was not killing nubile teenagers so Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning was born. Tom Morga was picked to portray everyone’s favorite slasher in this newest incarnation of the franchise and we are happy to bring him to this year’s CT HorrorFest.
He is the only actor to ever appear on film as Jason, Michael Myers and Leatherface!
Films: Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Stunts: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Army of Darkness
In 1981, the greatest slasher film of all time picked up where it left off three years earlier; Halloween II was a direct sequel to the original film and was also intended to be the end for the “unstoppable” Michael Myers.
The man who played Myers in this historic sequel was none other than stunt legend Dick Warlock. Mr. Warlock has worked with some of the best in the business from Spielberg in Jaws to John Carpenter to being Kurt Russell’s stunt double for more than 25 years!
CT HorrorFest is proud to bring Dick Warlock to Connecticut for our 2017 show!
Actor: Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Firestarter, Pumpkinhead, Spider Man (2002) and Casino
Stunts: Escape from New York (Coordinator), The Thing (Coordinator), Jaws, Blazing Saddles, Friday the 13th Part V (Coordinator), Casino (Coordinator)
Having first broken into the mainstream with her role as Carol Traynor in the hit TV show Maude, it wasn’t until her starring role as Stevie Wayne, Antonio Bay’s favorite radio DJ, in John Carpenter’s 1980 film The Fog that Adrienne Barbeau made her huge presence felt to horror fans around the world.
She quickly followed up with Escape from New York, Swamp Thing and then Creepshow further cementing her status as a queen of the horror/SciFi world.
CT HorrorFest is thrilled to bring Adrienne Barbeau to our 2017 festival.
Films: The Fog, Swamp Thing, Escape from New York, Cannonball Run, Creepshow, Back to School.
Only once in a great while does a horror film break through to the mainstream and have the opportunity to petrify the masses. In 2012, the terrifying pagan deity Bughuul first graced the screen in the breakout hit Sinister. Then again in 2015, the “devourer of children” hit the theaters and scared countless people out of their seats.
We are happy to welcome Nicholas King, the man behind the “sinister” Bughuul makeup, to CT HorrorFest this September!
Actor: Sinister, Sinister 2
Stunts: Paranormal Activity 3
