I know; I know. It’s still July, but it’s never too early for guest announcements for Florida’s favorite horror fest, Spooky Empire!
The festival, which will take place in its new home at the Caribe Royale Orlando, is never lacking in talent for photo ops and autographs as well as vendors from all over the world, but they’re pulling out all the stops this year!
First up, Cassandra Peterson will be attending this year! She’s no stranger to festival appearances, but there’s a wicked twist for Spooky Empire 2018!
On Friday October 26, Peterson will appear as her over-the-top alter-ego Elvira for an exclusive photo op! That’s right, you can have your picture taken with the Mistress of the Dark in all her glory! You can pre-order your Elvira photo op tickets here!
The following day, October 27, Peterson will be back as herself for autographs and a special Q&A that you will not want to miss!
Next up, previously announced David Duchovnay and Gillian Anderson will be joined by Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis.
Fans of “The X-Files” will remember Pileggi as Agent Skinner, while Davis is best known for his role as the mysterious and sinister Cigarette Smoking Man who proved more than a match for Duchovny and Anderson’s Mulder and Scully throughout the series’ nine season run!
All you metal fans, the next announcement is just for you!
Phil Anselmo, best known as the vocalist of PANTERA will be in attendance October 26-28! That’s right, the legendary musician will be in attendance all three days of the festival chatting with fans and signing autographs!
And last but not least, the singularly talented Carl Weathers will be in attendance this year. To fans the world over, he is Apollo Creed from Rocky 1-4 and Dillon in the original Predator film, but let’s not forget his appearances in Little Nicky and Happy Gilmore, as well!
