Fabien Delage, our man on the ground in France, recently attended the 19th annual Gerardmer International Fantastic Film Festival (GIFFF) in Vosges, France. Fabien, who is an artist, videographer and professional ghosthunter, loaded us up with pics from the event and the very cool video you’ll find posted below. Fabien is also the voice of Rue Morgue France; we’ve decided that he probably sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his seemingly endless energy, but we’re totally cool with that.
Next weekend, March 10/11, the Toronto March ComicCon show happens at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Though smaller (and also less expensive!) than the Fan Expo in August, which features the Festival of Fear, there’s still horror fun to be had.
Here’s a rundown of the stuff I programmed:
Hobos, Shotguns and Grindhouse Insanity: a conversation with Jason Eisener
Saturday, 12p.m, 801B, hosted by the Gore-met.
With the 8th Annual Rue Morgue Festival of Fear only 50 sleepless nights away, news out of the House of Horror this week is that we’re presenting a rare 35mm screening of Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark, including an exclusive Q&A with star Lance Henriksen hosted by TV personality Richard Crouse (who did a bang-up job of the Ken Russell Devils screening and Q&A last year), at the Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Ave.) on Thursday, August 25 at 8 p.m., tickets only $15 door/advance.
Then, on Friday, August 26, we’re throwing a FREE Shocktail Party with a performance by Texas gothabilly act (and Hymns From the House of Horror alumni) Ghoultown, and a set by DJ Peter Black at The Courthouse (57 Adelaide St. E.) at 10 p.m.
The official guest list for the 2011 Rue Morgue Festival of Fear (Thursday, August 25 – Sunday, August 28) announcements are here!
Headlining an esteemed list of horror royalty is this year’s Guest of Honour, Robert Englund a.k.a. Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street series!
