C.J. Graham

We didn’t have to think too hard this year about what day to announce our first guest for the September 12th, 2020 CT HorrorFest; Friday the 13th was an obvious choice. Over the years, CT HorrorFest has been honored to be able to celebrate some of the great actors who have portrayed Jason Voorhees in the series; from Ari Lehman to Tom Morga to Warrington Gillette to the late, great Steve Dash – we’ve had a good bunch of them, and we are super excited to add another to the list!

Please join us in welcoming the man behind the mask in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives – C.J. Graham – to CT HorrorFest in 2020!

Films: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, Highway to Hell

Michael Berryman

While working as a florist at a Hollywood flower shop, our next guest was discovered by pioneering Sci-Fi producer George Pal. After a brief chat, George knew that he’d found the “coroner” for his next film, Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze.

Shortly after finishing Doc Savage, Michael Berryman was cast as Ellis, one of the patients in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest alongside Jack Nicholson. For fans of the horror genre, Berryman became an iconic figure for his role as Pluto in Wes Craven’s 1977 savage film The Hills Have Eyes.

Mr. Berryman’s talented acting, positive attitude and distinctive features have kept him busy throughout a remarkable career in the film industry and we are honored to have him as a guest at our 2020 CT HorrorFest!

Films: The Hills Have Eyes 1 &2, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Deadly Blessing, Weird Science, Spy Hard, The Devil’s Rejects, The Lords of Salem, Death House

Television: The Fall Guy, Highway to Heaven, Alf, Tales from the Crypt, The X-Files, Conan, Z-Nation

Music Videos: Motley Crue: Home Sweet Home, Motley Crue: Smokin’ in the Boys Room, The Ramones: Substitute, Eminem: Without Me

In December of 2015, long-time Horror News Network/CT HorrorFest staff member, Sarah Mathews passed away suddenly. Her love of all things pop culture was only over shadowed by her love of cats. It is in her honor that we are donating the 2018 raffle prize and table to Animals for Life-CT at CT HorrorFest.

Animals for Life is an all-volunteer, not for profit animal rescue based out of CT. Since 1996, Animals for Life has had the simple goal of finding needy animals loving homes. Now, almost 20 years later, their goal remains the same–to place homeless cats and dogs into wonderful, forever homes.

They are also are huge believers in education and outreach and work to educate and assist the public on companion animal issues, and address the issue of pet overpopulation that is rampant in CT and the world in general.


What time should I arrive as an attendee?

Any time! The event runs from 11AM-7PM. Attendees can come to the show during those hours. Pre-ordering your tickets allows you to enter at 10AM.

What if I need to BUY tickets day of the event?

You may purchase tickets the day of event for $25 cash only at the front table.

Can I come in costume?

Of course!

How much are autographs?

Please note that pricing is at the sole discretion of the celebrity (NOT CT HorrorFest) and is subject to change. It also may vary for other merch they may have specific to them.

Is there an ATM onsite?

Yes. Plus, there is a bank across the street.

My costume has a weapon is that OK?

All costume props must be inspected at the front desk. Because of safety reasons, we cannot allow any real or sharp weapons into the venue.

Can I have my machete/knife, etc. signed by a celebrity?

If you collect signatures of Jason, Michael, or any other character on a real weapon you must present the weapon to a CT HorrorFest staff member at the FRONT desk when you arrive. We will then issue you a ticket that you present to a CT HorrorFest staff member when you get up close to the front of the line. The staff member will retrieve your weapon and bring it to the celebrity where you can have it signed. After the celebrity signs the item you must either exit and put it in your vehicle or give it to a CT HorrorFest staff member who will keep it at the front desk for safe keeping.


Our programming will be announced as the event draws closer.
