About this series:
Everybody has a horror movie that scared the bejesus out of them as a kid. Every actor has one, too. Fear-Mongers: Fireside Chats about Horror Films, co-sponsored by The Terror Trap and Fangoria Magazine, enlists top-shelf artists to pay homage to their guiltiest pleasures: horror movies. Our guest lecturers will present a personal essay on those particular celluloid terrors that continue to resonate with them today. And for the truly putrid piece de resistance, each evening’s installment will include a “Behind the Slashers Studio” with a special celebrity guest. We here at Fear-Mongers focus solely on those roles that haunt our star’s IMDB page, having candid conversations about life on the set of their most infamous films and their relationship with the genre.
Part talk-show, part reading-series, Fear-Mongers is an entertaining evening for both horror fans and general spectators alike. Come if you dare…
