DAY OF THE DEAD’s Lori Cardille, Hammer Films Legend David Prowse and others join FALLS HORROR FEST!News Fangoria Staff
More guests have been added to FANGORIA’s Falls Horror Fest, running for two action packed days on June 8th and 9th, 2013 on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls!
We’re excited to feature none other than Lori Cardille, the inimitable Sarah from George A. Romero’s 1985 horror masterpiece DAY OF THE DEAD. Cardille’s strong, single minded and yet still vulnerable lead in Romero’s beloved third “Dead” film is inarguably one of the most important female characters in horror and the woman who played her is a delight. Lori is looking forward to hanging out in the romantic and garish Niagara Falls setting and meeting some of her devoted fanbase.
Also joining the roster is David Prowse, the man known best as Darth Vader who is beloved by horror fans for his double-shot turns as the Frankenstein Monster in Hammer’s EVIL OF FRANKENSTEIN and FRANKENSTEIN AND THE MONSTER FROM HELL as well as VAMPIRE CIRCUS.
Also on the still-expanding bill is author Kier-La Janisse (HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN), FANGO editor Chris Alexander and the cast of his indie arthouse horror film BLOOD FOR IRINA and maverick indie horror auteur Gregory Lamberson (SLIME CITY, SLIME CITY MASSACRE). These new guests join the likes of FX wizard Paul Jones (the RESIDENT EVIL series, SILENT HILL 1&2, HELLRAISER 2&3, THE THING remake and many, many more), Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13th, HATCHET) and genre film FX legend Tom Savini (DAWN OF THE DEAD, MANIAC, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN). The con is in collusion with the Niagara Falls Comic Con (whose guests also include FLASH GORDON’s Sam Jones, BATMAN’s Adam West and Lee Meriwether and Seinfeld’s The Soup Nazi!) at the Scotiabank Convention Centre (6815 Stanley Ave, Niagra Falls, Canada). It will be two days of frightful fun, special shocking events and accessible (and affordable!) celebrity interaction!
