ScareFest is by far my favorite convention, but why you ask? It is simple really, not only do you get the best of horror, but you get the best of the paranormal world too. ScareFest 8 is no exception, it is reunions galore, Phantasm, American Horror Story, Fright Night and The Munsters.
The center of ScareFest 8 is the massive Phantasm reunion. Who will you be able to meet? Angus Scrimm, A.Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Reggie Bannister, Kathy Lester, Gigi Fast Elk and Don Coscarelli.
The FX hit series American Horror Story and the stars of its numerous sub-stories have been the focus of many horror conventions for the last couple of years, this year in particular. ScareFest 8 has some pretty impressive names on hand for their American Horror Story reunion, it is heavily based around this past season, American Horror Story: Freak Show. The list includes Naomi Grossman (Pepper), Jamie Brewer (Adelaide Langdon), Jyoti Amge (Ma Petite), Erika Ervin (Amazon Eve) and Rose Siggins (Legless Suzi). Ben Woolf (Meep) was also scheduled to appear before his tragic death earlier this year.
Other names in horror that will be on hand include, Ari Lehman (the first Jason Voorhees), Butch Patrick (The Munsters), Robert Mukes (House of 1000 Corpses) and many more. For a full list of the guests that have been announced thus far, visit the ScareFestCon.com/Horror. More names will be announced soon.
ScareFest puts as much care into finding the perfect paranormal guests as they do finding their horror guests. This year’s paranormal lineup includes Josh Gates (Expedition Unknown), Ben Hansen (Fact or Faked), Chip Coffey (Psychic Kids), Michelle Belanger (Paranormal State), Amy Allan (Dead Files) and more. For a full list of this year’s paranormal guests, visit ScareFestCon.com/Paranormal. More guests to be announced soon.
