This Sunday, October 28th sees FANGORIA’s Canadian crew—editor
Chris Alexander among them—bringing the freak for the first Toronto based Fango
Halloween Party. Called BLACK SUNDAY, the bash features killer live music,
costumes and a special appearance by FX Master Paul Jones (profiled in FANGORIA
#318) and his SILENT HILL: REVELATION creatures.
The venue is a new-ish joint called 3030 Dundas West and the
fit is more than right. As it turns out, party organizer and Fango contributor
(and resident party DJ) John Nicol went to high school with 3030 owner Jameson
Kelly and they shared a love for horror…and FANGORIA.
Since 3030 is hosting our wild, weird shenanigans, John took
some time to chat with Jameson over some vintage pinball and pumpkin ale, both
of which can be enjoyed at BLACK SUNDAY this weekend.
"Growing up in the ‘80s was a great time. I
got hooked on all the classic horror icons like Freddy and Pinhead. Additionally,
I was exposed to some of the most incredible gore and camp horrors of the time
like DEAD ALIVE, the EVIL DEAD series or anything involving zombies," Kelly says. "I can
still remember putting together my Fright Flicks cards, reading the backs and
trying to form the poster. Throughout all that, young boys just like gross
stuff and no one catered to the imagery more than FANGORIA. Your perspective may change growing up, but
the fascination never does. I think I have an issue of the magazine showing how
to form a latex tentacle that would wrap around its victim. FANGORIA has always
attracted me to the shelves. The medium may have changed, but the message has
not; great horror is creative, scary, bloody and gory. Fango fans are constantly
reminded just how much entertainment the genre provides…"
During our chat, we slapped on a copy of FROM BEYOND while
Jameson proudly reveals 3030’s latest acquisition, massive movie screen and digital projector. The
sound system is brilliant! Kelly continues, "John Nicol and
I have known each other for a long time and I was thrilled to find out he was
now involved with FANGORIA. 3030 is a
new venue that opened May this year and I really wanted our first Halloween
event to make an impact. This was all the more challenging considering the date
fell on a Wednesday. I believe John and FANGORIA will help us tremendously in
making our first Halloween a success. Having Fango provide their expertise on
horror, in addition to the star power and notoriety of Paul Jones and working
with great products such as Nightmare on Mill Street will all blend together to
form a tremendous night. I am extremely excited about the event. I am looking
forward to watching FANGORIA transform 3030 in to the nightmare it can become.
If you’re in the
Toronto area come to 3030 Dundas Street West in Toronto’s the Junction. Doors
