You guys! It’s almost time for our Silver Scream Fest in beautiful Santa Rosa, Calif. It’s in two weeks and you can still get tix! You can also win posters, T-shirts, and even tix to the event. Check our Facebook and Twitter daily for ways to get your furry paws on some great swag!
Also: Did I mention that Santa Rosa is wine country? You can see stars, catch some screenings of both new and classic films, and tickle your palate, all in one gloriously gory weekend!
• A tribute to Wes Craven by none other than his greatest creation, Freddy Krueger, Robert Englund himself; Freddy’s favorite leading lady, Heather Langenkamp from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and NEW NIGHTMARE; and Craven’s longtime producer Marianne Maddelena.
• A celebration of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON’s 35th anniversary with a reunion of director John Landis (THE BLUES BROTHERS, ANIMAL HOUSE, TRADING PLACES); effects artist Rick Baker (MEN IN BLACK, THE RING, TRON: LEGACY), who has won SEVEN OSCARS (that’s a record for makeup artists, people!); and star David Naughton.
• A Q&A with Bela Lugosi Jr., who will relate memories of the Golden Age of Hollywood, when his father was creating some of the most indelible characters and images ever recorded in films like DRACULA, SON OF FRANKENSTEIN, and THE WOLF MAN.
• There are also graphic artists like Eric Keyes (THE SIMPSONS), Darick Robertson (TRANSMETROPOLITAN), and Rob Prior (TERMINATOR), who will discuss their art and the creativity of graphic novels.
In addition to the stars, this is a film festival and there are so many screenings your head will spin like you’re Regan MacNeil. (Spare us the pea soup, though, guys. I mean, seriously. That stuff is a bear to clean up.) In addition to classics like WES CRAVEN’S NEW NIGHTMARE, WHITE ZOMBIE, and SANTA SANGRE, you can check out Heather Langenkamp’s documentary, I AM NANCY; a filmed tour through Uncle Forry’s three houses of film memorabilia, and eight features and 31 shorts that were submitted by fans like you and chosen specifically by our panel of judges to represent Famous Monsters of Filmland and the Silver Scream Fest.
Not enough for you? There are also parties, an awards show, and meet-and-greets. And there will be lovely food and drinks courtesy of our sponsors: Kendall-Jackson winery, Lagunitas Brewery, Mary’s Pizza Shack, Ca’Bianca, and Café des Croissants. You can tour both Kendall-Jackson’s grounds and Lagunitas’ brewery in between film screamings and celeb sightings!
Join us in Santa Rosa! You’ll have a bloody good time!
