MONSTER BASH SUMMER 2007
SCARY MONSTER MEMORIES
The 2006 Monster Bash featured Guests of Honor Elvira, German Robles, Richard Kiel, Ben Chapman, Kevin McCarthy, Chilly Billy Cardille, Dee Ankers-Denning, Laurie Mitchell, Ib Melchior, Son of Ghoul, Michael Thomas and many others.
It was another power-packed event celebrating the classic films of yesterday. Check out the photos from various events.
Michael Thomas did the make-up on Mark Statler, transforming him into The Wolf Man. The Wolf Man then "attacked" Evelyn Ankers granddaughter, Summer, in front of the audience in a mock recreation of a scene from THE WOLF MAN. Tim Herron created the make-up of the Frankenstein Monster on himself and performed a selection of prose from Mary Shelley's classic book on stage. We unveiled the lifetime Monster Bash Award (MBA), known affectionately as "The Forry" for Forrest J Ackerman, sculpted by Daniel Horne. The first two awards went to Forrest J Ackerman and Bob Pellegrino for their unflagging support of Monster Bash.
Just an incredible time. We hope you'll make the next Monster Bash! CLICK HERE for details.

The Monster Bash Award (MBA) was unveiled at Bash this year. Affectionatly called "The Forry." It's Forry Ackerman's face on the Frankenstein Monster, sculpted by Daniel Horne. I's a lifetime award for supporters of Monster Bash - The Classic Movie Conference. The first award (pictured here) went to Forrest J Ackernan himself. The second went to Bob Pellegrino for his hard work behind-the-scenes (and sometimes in front!) at Monster Bash for ten years!
