SCARY MONSTER MEMORIES
Monster Bash Winterfest in 2000 featured guests Forrest J Ackerman,
Tom Savini, Conrad Brooks, Robert Tinnell, David "The Rock"
Nelson, Carpathian and others!
This show was a scaled back, easy
going, old-fashioned kind of convention. A total dedication to the man
that made it all happen in the 1960's & 1970's - Forrest J Ackerman.
It included a live musical performance to a showing of the 1925 PHANTOM
OF THE OPERA with Lon Chaney. Kevin Slick brought the haunted house
down with his new score for the film that he played live on keyboards.
Below photos courtesty of the Spisak's
from Kentucky and Tony Bertram of The Journal of Dark Romantism.
