THE MONSTER CLUB Frankenstein from the Bill Luciani & Tony Pitocco collection....look atthe detail on this one!.
Herbert Lom's Hammer PHANTOM OF THE OPERA! So real, you thought he would unmask at any time. (He did!). From the Bill Luciani & Tony Pitocco Wax Museum.
Heads-up! It's the Bill Luciani & Tony Pitocco collection of heads. Note the burned-up Glenn Strange Frankestein monster.
No, that's not someone in elaborate make-up....it's an extremly realistic werewolf figure from The Bill Luciani & Tony Pitocco wax figure collection.
Monster Bash is an easy place to make good friends...we all love the same thing -- classic monsters! Above, left to right: Tom Jackson from Pennsylvania, Paul Speidel from Manitoba and Father Mike - a priest in Ohio.
Holy cow! Look at the size of the new Monster Bash Dealer room! Enough monster goodies to make you feel like your twelve years old again, looking through all the Captain Company goodies.
And now, welcome to The Witch's Dungeon! Cortlandt Hull's lifelong love of classic monsters runs wild here. A pair of Phantoms greet you and let you know all about the monumental new DVD documentary: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA - UNMASKING A MASTERPIECE. .
Attendee Paul Speidel meets actor John Saxon from NIGHT CALLER FROM OUTER SPACE and so much more.
The Dealer's Den is rocking.
So much stuff.
A wall of original movie posters at Monster Bash...it's Bruce & Sharon Tinkel with lots of cool originals. See something you want? They might still have it at next Bash...ask for Bruce's table.
And, around the next corner at Monster Bash....this one's moving!
Most people didn't know it was orginiall Abbott, Costello & Erik. Then Erik left early on to persue a solo career. Lou Costello (Joe Ziegler), Erik - The Phantom (Ron Chaney in make-up by John Tattarelli, Jr. & Reel Magik) and Bud Abbott (Bill Reiley).
