Rue Morgue Radio’s Tomb Dragomir has finished splicing together Part One of the Tomb TV episode he’s been stitching together from all the footage he culled while stalking the floor of this year’s Festival of Fear – including a tour through Fort Fright’s haunted house, some makeup talk with Robert Englund, a bro-down with Ghoulish Gary, an unexpected song-and-dance routine with a disturbingly bug-eyed Cannibal Cam, Tomb Toons, and oh so much more!
Unless you’ve been stuck under a tombstone you probably heard by now that Robert Englund, (a.k.a. Freddy) is the guest of honour at this year’s Festival of Fear. One of the most iconic faces in modern horror, Freddy has slashed and ripped his way through the nightmares of teens since 1984. Though he’s known for his dapper hat and razor fingers it’s his burned up visage that remains seared in your brain.
The line-up for Texas Frightmare Weekend (texasfrightmareweekend.com) is near bursting with the announcement that SID HAIG, JAMES HAMPTON (Teen Wolf, Sling Blade) and MIMI MICHAELS (Chromeskull: Laid to Rest) have been added to the already illustrious slate of guests. Haig will also be on hand in full Captain Spaulding makeup for a very rare photo opportunity! (Day, time and other details to be announced.)
As June comes to a close, I figured it handy to do a tally of current and upcoming horror and giallo score releases (digitally + CD). This will be a regular thing because it helps you and me keep track of what the heck is out there – which is substantial. I’ll update the list every two weeks (unless there’s a limited disc announcement that’s sure to result in fast sales), and also encourage readers to post details of upcoming titles I may have missed. (Those wanting non-blood-letting film score release news can also check out my other blog at mondomark.blogspot.com. The run-on sentences are bigger, and the blather is sometimes profound.)
