Born in New Jersey, Alex Vincent got his start in acting at a young age by playing the six-year old Andy Barclay in the 1988 hit Child’s Play. After surviving his run-in with the Charles Lee Ray possessed ‘Good Guy’ doll, Alex did a few movies with heavy industry names like Faye Dunaway, Joe Mantegna, Dee Wallace and Jay Sanders before reprising his role of Andy for the sequel Child’s Play 2.
Having mostly retired from acting, Alex got started in sound recording and owns and runs a successful recording studio in Florida called AV Productions.
Lucky for us, Alex came out of acting retirement to star in last year’s surprise hit Cult of Chucky, reprising his role as an older, and tougher, Andy Barclay.
CT HorrorFest is proud to welcome Alex Vincent to our 2018 show!

In 1985, New Line Cinema brought us maybe the wildest entry into the “Freddy Krueger” franchise with A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. Following up on the huge success of 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street, the team decided to go a different way and have a male lead opposite Freddy Krueger and so the character of Jesse Walsh was born.
When it came time to cast the role of Jesse Walsh, the powers-that-be decided upon former Junior Olympics gymnast Mark Patton who made a name for himself on Broadway opposite acting giants Cher, Kathy Bates and Karen Black in Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean and then starred in the film adaption as well.
After playing Jesse, Mark soured on Hollywood as a whole and left it behind in 1986 before coming back to discuss the Nightmare series in 2010’s Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy.
CT HorrorFest is thrilled to welcome Mark Patton in 2018!

Starting out at age 8 in a film alongside Hollywood big-timers Eddie Albert (Green Acres), Jane Wyatt (Father Knows Best) and Soupy Sales, it’s safe to say that Butch Patrick was a star from a very young age. That film led to roles on hit shows like General Hospital, The Untouchables, My Favorite Martian and Mister Ed.
However, it was in 1964 when Butch was 10 years old that he landed the role that would define his career for fans like ourselves. Screen testing alongside the beautiful Yvonne De Carlo, Butch landed the role of Edward Wolfgang Munster and “Eddie Munster” was born.
CT HorrorFest is thrilled to welcome Butch Patrick to Connecticut on September 15th!

There aren’t many “Scream Queens” that can boast a resume as robust as Dee Wallace. Dee’s film career started with a small role in the Connecticut thriller The Stepford Wives followed by a much larger role in Wes Craven’s 1977 classic The Hills Have Eyes.
Starring roles in The Howling, Cujo, Critters and more solidified her as a star in horror fans’ eyes but unlike a lot of her female colleagues of that era, Dee was able to step outside of the horror genre with huge roles in major Hollywood productions like 10 and E.T. due mainly to her superb acting and great attitude.
Dee is still very active in the industry with recent roles in Rob Zombie films and the recent Death House.
Please join us in welcoming Dee Wallace to CT HorrorFest!
