Toronto’s only horror and cult movie convention Horror-Rama announces full panel schedule and party details
Horror-Rama, Toronto’s only all-horror movie culture party and convention, screams to life for its third horrifying year at The Hyatt Hotel on King St. (right beside the TIFF Bell Lightbox). The show will open its bloody gates on October 15th – 16th and a star-studded roster of genre stars and filmmakers are set to attend.
Horror-Rama is owned and operated by Toronto video store legend Luis Ceriz of Suspect Video and filmmaker, Delirium editor and ShockTillYouDrop writer/editor Chris Alexander. With Suspect closing its doors at the end of this year, Horror-Rama aims to continue celebrating that spirit of horror, dark fantasy and exploitation fandom, offering attendees the chance to get up close and personal with their heroes, groove to an in-house DJ, thrill to our convention floor live performances and buy tons of incredible horror swag from our dozens of vendors.
Attending Horror-Rama this year:
*Dyanne Thorne, star of notorious exploitation classic Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS and its gruesome sequels
*Tovah Feldshuh, Broadway legend and star of AMC’s The Walking Dead
*Danielle Ouimet, Canadian sex film starlet, noted broadcaster and star of cult vampire film Daughters of Darkness (first convention appearance)
*Cult director William Lustig (Maniac, Maniac Cop)
*Cult filmmaker David De Coteau (Creepozoids, Puppet Master III)
*Horror director Jeff Lieberman (Squirm, Blue Sunshine)
*Actors Cindy Hinds and Art Hindle from David Cronenberg’s masterpiece The Brood
*Eurohorror actress Geretta Geretta (Lamberto Bava’s Demons, Rats)
*Canadian Scream Queen Helene Udy (My Bloody Valentine, PIN, The Incubus)
*Canadian filmmaker Jovanka Vuckovic and tattoo artist Shane Faulkner
*Canadian horror director Chad Archibald (Bite)
And many, many more….
Also joining the party is Joe Hart’s “Gate Fest”, an amazing collection of props and memorabilia from the classic 1987 Canadian horror movie The Gate. Select The Gate cast will also be on hand for this one-of-a-kind exhibit.
