The 2003 Monster Bash featured Guests of Honor Sara Karloff, Kevin McCarthy, Ben Chapman, Julie Adams, Cortlandt Hull (Werewolf of London descendant), Bob Burns (1950s Sci-Fi/Our favorite Ape Man!), Tom Savini, Frank Dello Stritto, Vlad and Creighton from Ghoul A Go-Go TV and many more.

What a time! The Bash rolled on with great guests and a real fun time. Some quick little visions that are still flashing in my head: seeing someone dressed up like "The Fly" in the hallway, radio coverage on CNN network news, Paul Harvey radio news, AP wire on newspapers across the country, seeing the great on Chamberlin make-ups with little scenerios we did on stage. The Mummy choking the High Priest of Bash (Bill Miller) on stage with my wife as the reincarnated Ananka, The Werewolf of London chasing my sister, Ron himself as Uncle Boris from MAD MONSTER PARTY, Ron Chamberlain and Thom Subila as the characters from THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI with the great new score performed live by childhood friend Kevin Slick!
