Veteran horror director Jeff Lieberman, creator of cult classics including SQUIRM, BLUE SUNSHINE and JUST BEFORE DAWN, has joined the growing list of horror celebrities who have come on board the signing event for FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER at New York City’s Forbidden Planet (832 Broadway near Union Square;  473-1576). The event will take place this Thursday, April 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Lieberman’s films also include the sardonic Halloween horror film SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER, the alien-invasion-via-video opus REMOTE CONTROL and the mad-science TV movie DOCTOR FRANKEN. Appearing with him will be genre all-stars such as: splatter king Tom Savini; BASKET CAST, BRAIN DAMAGE and FRANKENHOOKER auteur Frank Henenlotter; legendary FAMOUS MONSTERS cover artist Basil Gogos; Larry Fessenden (director of THE LAST WINTER, HABIT, WENDIGO); Debbie Rochon (actress, Fango columnist and former host of Sirius’ much-missed FANGORIA RADIO); and screenwriter/playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (CARRIE and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, Broadway shows SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK and upcoming AMERICAN PSYCHO). In addition, staffers Tony Timpone, Thomas DeFeo, Michael Gingold, W.R. Mohalley and Ken Hanley will be on hand to sign as well. Copies of FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER will be available for purchase, but autographs will be free, as they should be! (Please note, celebs will be signing the book only.)
More special guests will be added, so keep checking back. Please come on out and help FANGORIA celebrate its amazing 35-year-old run on April 2 in NYC at Forbidden Planet in the bloody heart of Union Square. For more info on FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER, published by Cemetery Dance, go here and here.
