Its good news and bad for us horror fans I’m afraid, with a significant guest cancelling the tour but some kick ass new ones joining the fun at the London Film and Comic Con. Linda Blair is out, which is a real shame as she was on my personal interview list. Guess I will have to wait. However don’t let the lack of green pea soup get you down, take a look at her replacements.
There is bound to be a walking dead panel now there is a build-up of Walking dead stars going. Morrissey is a long standing British Drama actor but no one can forget what he brought to The Walking Dead table as the Governor.
Without doubt the greatest creature actor of our time. Having spoken to Dougy through email I am thrilled that I will get to meet him in person and can only hope that he can spare a few moments of his time to talk to iHorror about his amazing career. Everyone has seen a movie with Doug Jones in, whether you know it or not. He was Abe Sapian in Hell Boy (2004), Fauno and Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Joey in Men in Black 2 (2002) and the list goes on and on and on. check out his imdb here
Just in time for the Alien Covenant release. Skerritt has been a Hollywood A-lister for decades and although most horror fans will know his work in the best sci-fi horror of all time, I’m talking of course Alien (1979) where he played Dallas, he has been in a ton of horror movies dating back to the 70’s. The Devil’s Rain (1974), Savage Harvest (1981), Dead Zone (1983),Poltergeist 3 (1988) to name but a few. Yes Tom you can have a place at my table anytime.
Mu..mu..Maggie. Yes exploding head, eye popping Steven Yeun will be front and centre. Yeun was suppose to attend the LFCC back in 2015 but had to cancel, so hang in there Glenn.
Again another huge Hollywood horror actor from Alien (1979) but also from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) and The Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978). But for me her most entertaining work although quite dark in nature was her role in The Witches of Eastwick (1987) as Felicia Alden. Cartwright played a obsessed religious, paranoid neighbour that was beaten to death by her husband with a fire poker because she would not stop projectile vomiting cherry pips. Its a shame Linda Blair isn’t going as they could have had a puke off!
Tudyk has been in countless comedy shows and movies but his most memorable has to be his extremely gory movie Tucker and Dale Vs Evil (2010) which was absolutely hilarious, I must have watched this movie 10 times.
There are some other known faces attending too, check out the full list here, get your ticket and be sure to say hi to the guys in the iHorror t shirts.
