Toronto! HORROR-RAMA Welcomes Actress Lisa Marie to the Show!News Fangoria Staff
Toronto-based horror convention HORROR-RAMA, a two-day fan event happening in Toronto, Canada this November 1-2, 2014 (check out the preliminary news item here) has just announced its latest guest.
We’re thrilled to welcome the lovely actress and model Lisa Marie, she of such celebrated Tim Burton masterpieces as ED WOOD (in which she played horror hostess Vampira), SLEEPY HOLLOW and of course, MARS ATTACKS, in which the femme fatale essayed the role of the wide-eyed, gum chewing and comely alien in disguise who tries to use her/its charms to infiltrate the White House with shocking and funny results.
Lisa Marie brings her beauty, charm and amazing stories of working in dark fantasy films with Burton (along with some dynamite artwork to sign!) to HORROR-RAMA and we couldn’t be more pleased. This is Lisa Marie’s first Canadian fan event appearance, so be sure to come out and make it extra special for her
Lisa Marie joins our other guests including the First Lady of Gothic Italian horror, the one and only Barbara Steele; pioneering shock rocker Nivek Ogre, of the industrial performance-art band Skinny Puppy; psychosexual horror author Michael Slade (HEADHUNTER, GHOUL), filmmaker and author Jovanka Vuckovic; FX legend, actor and filmmaker, Tom Savini, British born, Toronto based FX artist Paul Jones (NIGHTBREED, SILENT HILL, NURSE 3D); FRANKENHOOKER starlet Patty Mullen and costume designer Alex Kavanagh (SAW, GINGER SNAPS, LAND OF THE DEAD, REPO!).
The brainchild of Toronto cult cinema institution SUSPECT Video and its owner Luis Ceriz and FANGORIA editor Chris Alexander, HORROR-RAMA is a niche convention, bringing together legends of horror cinema and dark pop culture for an intimate and interactive couple of days in the heart of the city.
We’ll be announcing ticket sales soon too so stay tuned!
