CT HorrorFest

CT HorrorFest comes to Naugatuck on September 14, 2019! We will have our show at the Naugatuck Event Center – our largest venue yet!


David Naughton

It’s only fitting that our first guest is a Connecticut native. Born in West Hartford, David Naughton caught the acting bug early on in his high school days. He appeared in plenty of plays and musicals before heading to the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art to hone his craft.

After leaving London for New York, David quickly burst into the mainstream as the face of Dr. Pepper’s “Be a Pepper” ad campaign that ran on television for years. He then landed the starring role on the television series Makin’ It where he also recorded the theme song which peaked at number 5 on the Billboard charts.

It was in 1981, however, when he landed a place in the hearts of horror fans everywhere with his starring role as David Kessler in John Landis’ An American Werewolf in London; widely considered to be one of the greatest werewolf films of all time.

CT HorrorFest Proudly welcomes David Naughton to our 2019 event!
