Flint Horror Con is Saturday, October 25, 2014
Noon - 9pm
~ 2014 Guests ~
The Flint Horror Con is proud to announce our first guest for the 2014 convention - Mr. Daniel Roebuck! Daniel's list of credits is far too extensive to list here, so let's just touch on a few of the many films and television shows he has been a part of: The Devil's Rejects, Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween 2, The Lords of Salem, Final Destination, Bubba Ho-Tep, John Dies At The End, The River's Edge (a terrifying turn as the teenaged killer Samson), Lost (Dr. Leslie Arzt) Grimm, Ghost Whisperer, Mob City (currently airing on TNT), The Walking Dead webisode series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Lost Skeleton Returns Again and many others. He is delighted to be attending and loves meeting his fans. In fact, he insists upon not charging guests for autographs or photos! That's right! He will not charge for photos or autographs. That is almost UNHEARD of in the convention game, and is one of the reasons Daniel is one of the convention scenes most loved guests.
In addition to his work as an actor, Daniel also can be found lurking through the darkness in his role as horror host Dr. Shocker. We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Roebuck as a guest and can't wait for you all to meet him.
Keep checking back this week as we'll let another ghoul out of the bag and maybe another surprise too.
The Flint Horror Con is very excited to announce our next guest for the 2014 convention - Mr. Chuck Williams! Chuck is an actor, producer, writer and director and has assembled an amazing array of credits to his name, including acting in - John Dies at the End, Bubba Ho-Tep, Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides, Horror Vision, Puppet Master 5 and a very memorable turn in the cult classic Soultaker! Aside from his acting skills, he served as the Assistant Director on the vampire favorite Near Dark and the ultra-cult favorite Dudes (co-starring his pal, Dan Roebuck). Like Dan, Chuck never charges for photos or autographs and is very excited to meet fans at this year’s Flint Horror Con!
In addition to his “jack of all trades” work in pretty much all facets of film, Chuck doubles as horror host Igor to accompany his pal Dr. Shocker for live events and DVD presentations. Best of all…he is a really cool guy and loves to talk horror! We are pleased to welcome Chuck to this year’s show.
We are thrilled to welcome Tim Shockey and his GREEN GOBLIN prop to the convention this year. Tim was slated to be at last year's show and it didn't work out but we were lucky enough to get him to come out this year and we're thrilled.
Tim found and restored the original Green Goblin front piece from MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE and will have it at the convention where you can get your photo taken with it for a small fee.
It's an amazing prop and we're thrilled to be able to bring it and Tim out this year.
As we have done the show for the past three years we have had amazing guests and have met amazingly talented folks. A small handful of these people though have become more than just guests but friends and family to the show. One of these people is Tom Sullivan. Tom is one of the kindest and most gracious people you will ever meet at a convention and has some of the most amazing art and props on display. Tom is best known for his work on the EVIL DEAD films but has worked on THE FLY II and countless indie films. As well as special effects he is also an accomplished artist a- if you love Lovecraft you have to see some of his art that was inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos! This year we welcome Tom back but with a twist. This year we are able to give Tom his own little room to take over. We're excited to be able to do this and are anxious to see what Tom will bring with him this year.
We are thrilled to welcome BOB ELMORE to the 2014 Flint Horror Con. Mr. Elmore has been working in the film industry since the 1980s and is best known for his long career doing stunt work. For horror fans he is best loved for portraying Leatherface in TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2’s many stunt scenes but many may not know that he also worked on another beloved horror film - THE MONSTER SQUAD. There is a long list of films on Mr. Elmore’s resume but here are some of the many highlights - DR. GIGGLES, CASINO, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, UNCLE BUCK, NOTHING BUT TROUBLE and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL where he appeared as the character Executioneras well as doing stunt work. Mr. Elmore’s career in film has been a lengthy and impressive one but for us horror fans there’s one character above all that gives us the night terrors and that character is Leatherface.
We are very excited to have Mr. Bob Elmore joining us for the convention this year and hope you’ll make sure to stop by and say hello to him at the show.
I mentioned recently that over the years we have done this convention we tend to consider everyone family by the time they leave. It takes a lot of trust to do a small show like ours in a city not known for its conventions and the folks that have come out have been amazing, across the boards. Some of those folks though become more than just family but become CLOSE family. One of those people we consider close family is Lucifer Fulci.
Lucifer Fulci is a multi-talented man who has worked in the music industry, in the film industry, and who has written several books. We have been lucky enough to have Lucifer stand in for us as an MC at previous events and he has been gracious enough to invite us to take part in some of his own projects. From his loving book about gore films - CHUNKBLOWERS - to his dark music, and even his in film with BUBBA HO-TEP Lucifer Fulci has proven himself to be a passionate fan and ambassador to horror and we are thrilled to have him back with us for another year.
All guest appearances are confirmed but subject to possible cancellation due to professional obligations
and opportunities beyond the control of Flint Horror Convention. We appreciate your understanding.
