If you’re a horror con nut, chances are you’ve at least HEARD of the great Monsterpalooza convention that occurs annually every Spring in the southern California area. And if you’re lucky enough, you’ve been to one, two, or every con they’ve thrown since their successful trial event in 2008- in which case, bless you and your little black heart for supporting the horror industry on-the-go.
This year, Monsterpalloza is bursting at the seams with one HELL of a line-up. From various actors native of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise- including the legend Robert Englund, to the Chiodo Bros., to the Candyman himself Tony Todd, the Pasadena, California event is looking to outdo themselves this time around. And just recently, the website announced three more special guests to take part in an added panel event. The Cult of Chucky director and creator of everyone’s favorite ‘Good Guy’ himself, Don Mancini, Jennifer Tilly, and Fiona Dourif!
With shooting wrapped of the seventh Child’s Play film last month, the trio will be on hand for a very special event panel occurring on Friday, April 7th only from 8:00 – 9:00 PM, talking everything Cult of Chucky, including any new announcements on the movie that is set to drop on VOD this October, with an official trailer coming sometime in June of this year.
On top of this exciting news, you’re not going to want to miss the amazing line-up of guests the event is playing host to this year, along with gorgeous displays of Halloween masks, the best and coolest horror toys the market has to offer, and an array of some of the best horror artists in business.
Tickets for each day Friday through Saturday individually will run you $30, and a three-day pass will give you the best price of $70 if you indeed plan to attend all three days of the convention. Of course, you can always buy at the door, however to save time and a few extra bucks it would be wise to purchase in advance- and you can do so by clicking here!
