Guest Star List October 2015

Friday and Saturday ONLY
Late night television in the 1960s and 1970s was treated to the best European horror films, drenched in Gothic creepiness and Barbara Steele was a focal point. This was the first exposure to the "Old World" for many of us kids back then. Barbara's resume is huge in our genre: BLACK SUNDAY, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, NIGHTMARE CASTLE, THE HORRIBLE DR. HICHCOCK, THE GHOST, THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH, CASTLE OF TERROR, THE CRIMSON CULT, THE SHE BEAST, TERROR CREATURES FROM THE GRAVE and in the 1990s revival of TV's DARK SHADOWS.
Lisa portrayed "Vampira" in the Tim Burton Film ED WOOD....and was just incredible. She also appears as the evil Martian in MARS ATTACKS and you can see her in PLANET OF THE APES, SLEEPY HOLLOW.
Blue Demon, Jr.
The legend lives on! Blue Demon was one of the greatest and most loved Mexican wrestlers of all time. His son has carried on over the past decade, and now one of the most loved luchadors right along side his father. MONSTER BASH is proud to have the great Blue Demon, Jr. appear all three days.
BASH! This October!
