After a year off in 2020 due to the pandemic, CT HorrorFest returned to Naugatuck, Connecticut last Saturday and picked up right where they left off. Horror News Network founders Rob and Christine Caprilozzi pulled no punches as they secured an inspiring guest list for their seventh show including screen veterans Matt Lillard and Skeet Ulrich of Scream, Kathy Najimy of Hocus Pocus, James Jude Courtney and Chris Durand of the Halloween franchise, Rachel True from The Craft, Connecticut actress Jordyn DiNatale from Fear Street, wrestling legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts and others from such films as The Thing, Paranormal Activity and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.
The thousands of rabid film fans in attendance were not only able to meet and greet some of their horror heroes but also had the opportunity to shop dozens of horror-themed vendors who came in from all across the country to show off their wares. Plenty of the attendees were decked out in cosplay paying tribute to their genre favorites and many of them participated in the costume contests which were a part of the day’s programming.
Along with the costume contests, fans were also given the opportunity to participate in moderated Q&A sessions with the actors from Paranormal Activity, Scream and the Halloween franchise.
Below are some pictures from the day’s activities for you to enjoy as we await the announcement of future CT HorrorFests!
