Cherry Hill, New Jersey(Home)
This past weekend we had the pleasure of having Drive-In Horrorshow screened at Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. It was a fantastically gruesome event. The crowd at our Saturday night show laughed, cried and screamed - it was truly a thing of beauty.
2012 is the 25th anniversary of the 1987 horror classic Hellraiser, and Monster Mania gathered the film's stars for a fan-pleasing reunion, including Doug Bradley, Clare Higgins and Ashley Laurence. Carl Weathers from Predator, The Rocky series and Happy Gilmore pleased the crowd - he looks like he could still easily go fifteen rounds and kick your butt.
Kevin Alejandro of True Blood stopped by our table. Drive-In Horrorshow photographer Aisha Singleton was under his spell.
Besides the headlining stars there were many other great events, vendors and like-minded souls at the convention. Here are just a few.
Scares that Care is a 501(c)( 3) non-profit all-volunteer charity that raises money for sick kids and women who are fighting breast cancer. Founder Joe Ripple raffled off the great hand-sculpted Jason mask in the photo above. Scares that Care was near our booth, and we stared in awe at the mask all weekend. Some lucky person won it, and helped the worthy cause. Scare that Cares is always raffling off great stuff to raise money - please check them out here (link).
The torturous bunch from Pork Chop's Pen of Pain stopped by our booth for a happy photo. What a nice bunch of ghouls - they truly have a taste for punishment. Zombie Frank was taken prisoner after this photo; his whereabouts are still unknown. He looks so happy, though. I'm sure he'll find his way home - he always does. Please check out Pork Chop's Pen of Pain for more debaucherous fun.
Michael Riehl "The Ornament Guy" hand-paints Cristmas ornaments with scenes from your favorite movies, television shows and comic books. His work struck a chord with us here at the Horrorshow. It's never to early to start planning for Christmas, even if you are a pagan. His work can be found at Theornamentguy.com.
The un-dead souls from the Macabre Faire were excellently morbid and a bunch of real nice monsters. They are holding a Halloween Extravaganza Oct 19-21 in Rockville Centre NY , featuring monsters, music, vendors, fashion shows, horror movies and live performers.

Well it is time to rest up; the film tour continues this week at the Festival of Fear in Toronto. See you there!
