Original Monster Kids are descending upon Midsummer Scream this July! The festival has just announced a panel featuring family members of some of the most iconic monsters in cinematic history. The 90-minute Original Monster Kids panel will feature Sara Karloff, daughter of Boris Karloff; Ron Chaney, grandson and great-grandson of Lon Chaney Jr. and Sr; Lynne Lugosi Sparks, granddaughter of Bela Lugosi; and Victoria Price, daughter of Vincent Price, as they share personal family stories, photos, and “perhaps a home movie or two”, giving fans a very personal look into the private lives of the actors who brought some of film’s most iconic characters to life.


The presentation will be moderated by Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, renowned collector of classic horror memorabilia, and long-time friend of the Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney, and Price families.

Executive Producer of Midsummer Scream, Gary Baker says, “We couldn’t be more excited about bringing this panel to the community. Through the years, we have hosted some pretty spectacular moments on our stage. Having these kids and grandkids of such important horror and pop-culture icons is not only a thrill, but also important and a very special look into the private lives of Hollywood royalty.”

The Original Horror Kids presentation will take place in the main stage ballroom Saturday afternoon, July 30th, at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Tickets are on sale now on the official MidsummerScream website, and for a very short time, fans can still grab Pre-Sale General Admission passes for 40% off! Follow Midsummer Scream on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
