Flint Horror Con 2013 is Saturday, October 19, 2013
12pm - 10pm
~ 2013 Guests ~
MASTER OF TERROR-MOANING
Following in the footsteps of Cleveland's legendary 60s horror host, Ghoulardi, The Son of Ghoul has himself become an Ohio television icon. And with 26 consecutive years on the air, he is among the longest running costumed horror hosts in the nation!
Son of Ghoul brings a high-spirited rock and roll attitude to those bad old movies we love to hate, spicing up the likes of The Wasp Woman, The Corpse Grinders and Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla with a lively variety of goofy sound effects and crazy music.
On a sheerly nerdy level, to have Tom Sullivan, the father of the Book of the Dead from the Evil Dead franchise as a friend to the convention is completely humbling. There are few horror legends that are as kind and approachable as Tom and he has been a champion for our con and for that we can't thank him enough.
Tom is know by most for his work with the Evil Dead franchise but that is just the tip of the iceberg. An accomplished artist, Tom has worked on films like The Fly 2 and has done art for Chaosium's Cthulhu offerings as well as fine horror art for his own projects.
A renowned lecturer on the paranormal, Mr. Tenney became a quick fan favorite at the 2011 convention and his deep knowledge and storytelling technique brings to life the world of the strange and bizarre and he is one guest you won't want to miss speaking to.
From his Bio
Researcher/Lecturer John E.L. Tenney has been actively involved in the field of paranormal/anomalistic/
conspiratorial research for well-over two decades. His columns, spanning the fields of UFOlogy and hauntings to conspiracy theories and cryptozoology, have been printed in magazines and newspapers world-wide. He has also been interviewed extensively on the internet, radio and television. It is estimated that over the past 20 years more than 40,000 people have attended one of Mr. Tenney's signature "Weird Lectures". John is a starring cast member of the A&E show Paranormal State: The New Class, which airs on the A&E channel. Aside from his lectures and due to his extended time involved in anomalistic research he has acted as a consultant for numerous companies, films and televison shows including, but not limited to, Unsolved Mysteries, Paramount, Fox, NBC, SyFy and The New York Times. John is one of the very few private individuals who has ever been contacted by The Vatican to participate in an exorcism sanctioned by The Holy See.
In 2011 Mr. Tenney created Realm of the Weird a bi-weekly podcast modeled after the old time horror radio shows of the 1940′s -1960′s. Listeners are presented with startling, chilling and weird tales, based in fact, from the actual case files of Mr. Tenney. Realm of the Weird was recently awarded Best Podcast in Michigan by Real Detroit Weekly. 2012 will see the release of two new books authored by Mr. Tenney, "One Last Thing" (a book chronicling his experiments in Instrumental Transcommunication) and "Haunted Saucers" ( a historical look at how UFOs and Hauntings may be connected).
From the cult classic film based on Stephen King's short story we will have the freshly restored Green Goblin head that adorned the film's 'villain' big rig. While the rig itself is no longer with us (please bow your heads) the Goblin lives on and will be with us in all its glory for photos.
All guest appearances are confirmed but subject to possible cancellation due to professional obligations
