After honing his craft at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Matthew Lillard got his start in the horror genre with a role in Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College and then hopped right into an awesome role as one of Kathleen Turner’s kids in John Waters’ 1994 black comedy Serial Mom.
Two years later, however, he solidified his status in the eyes of horror fans with his portrayal of Stu in Wes Craven’s 1996 slasher hit Scream. Mr. Lillard has had a very busy career working with actors like George Clooney in The Descendants and Clint Eastwood in Trouble with the Curve, just to name a few.
Also, a talented voice actor, Lillard is well-known for his portrayal of Scooby Doo’s Shaggy both in voice and live-action.

Born in Harlem and raised in Queens, Keith David caught the acting bug early on and studied his craft at Manhattan's High School of Performing Arts before earning a bachelor’s degree from the Drama Division of the prestigious Juilliard School.
After touring the U.S. in productions of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream and an uncredited role in the ’79 blaxploitation classic Disco Godfather, Mr. David secured the role that endured him to horror fans forever as he starred as Childs in John Carpenter’s 1982 classic The Thing. In 1988, David again teamed up with John Carpenter to star alongside Roddy Piper in the sci-fi action thriller They Live.
Mr. Keith’s love of theater never went away, and he was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical for his performance in Jelly's Last Jam. He continues to work in theater having appeared in the revival of The Wiz, Hot Feet, Seven Guitars and more.
Also, an accomplished voice actor, David voiced Spawn for the animated series, Goliath from Gargoyles, Lemuel Kane in Archer and also has a recurring role as the President of the United States in the animated show Rick and Morty as well as many video games.

In 1986, Bob was hired to do stunts on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and he figured he was in for a pretty easy day of work. That easy day of work grew as the director realized that the actor hired to portray Leatherface for the film wasn’t strong enough to wield the 75-pound chainsaw, so, they had to keep Bob on and he ended up being “the man behind the skin-mask” through-out approximately 98% of the film.
CT HorrorFest is thrilled to bring Bob Elmore to our 2021 show!
Stunts: Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment, The Monster Squad, License to Drive, Dr. Giggles, Casino, Delirious, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Nothing But Trouble

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.
Tickets will go on sale at the door at 11am on the day of the show. Or, you can skip that line and get into the show an hour earlier at 10am by buying your tickets now!
Tickets are $25 each.
While we anticipate (and really hope) that most community events will be back to normal in September, please understand that by buying a ticket to CT HorrorFest 2021, you are agreeing to follow the state of Connecticut’s Covid-19 most up-to-date guidelines and that you agree to do your part to protect yourself and others from the spread of Covid-19. The CT HorrorFest Crew will be following whatever state and CDC guidance is in place on September 18, 2021 and we’ll expect the same from our vendors, celebrities, and guests. With Covid-19 being an ever-changing and unpredictable situation, we thank you for your patience and flexibility; our main goal is for everyone to have a safe, fun, and positive CT HorrorFest.
While we’re sure that you have specific questions (like will we ask that you wear a mask? Will celebrities wear masks?), please be patient and we’ll update everyone as to the specifics when the event date draws closer. Once we hit late-August, we should have a better feel for what the environment is with Covid-19 and we’ll know what the suggested guidelines are at that time (if there are any).
Again, thank you for your patience and understanding and we can’t wait to see you all back at CT HorrorFest!
