Today is Halloween but all I can think about is Valentine's Day. My Bloody Valentine, to be precise. One of the greatest horror slashers ever made, and one of the best Canadian horror films ever put on film in the 1980s, the original My Bloody Valentine is a true cult classic that endures to this day. And this weekend at Horror-Rama, Toronto's only all-horror fan convention, you can come geek out over My Bloody Valentine with its director and esteemed convention guest GEORGE MIHALKA.
Mihalka will be appearing November 1st and 2nd at Horror-Rama, and the director of cult classics like My Bloody Valentine, Blue Man, and The Psychic has some exciting news about brand new horror projects in the works.
Mihalka tells Horror in the Hammer, "I am currently developing a few horror projects: "Revelations" and "Death Rattle" to name a couple. I have decided to come back to my roots and explore new stories to scare the bejeezus out of my fans. I will keep everyone posted as things move along. I will have some cool international and classic North American posters, cool postcards, and some never seen before 8x10 pictures from My Bloody Valentine to offer the fans who come and visit me at Horror-Rama."
"Horror fans are the most loyal and dedicated fans of any genre," Mihalka says. "I love their eclectic tastes, their informed questions and opinions. Frankly, sometimes I think they know more about my film than I do."
"Canadian horror fans are the most knowledgeable fans I have met," he continues. "Not only are they aware of what's going on in North America, they also have an astute knowledge of international films such as European, Asian and South American. I am always moved by the love and pride they display towards Canadian horror films, and of course their love of My Bloody Valentine never ceases to touch me... It makes me proud to have made a film that resonates so strongly with Canadian fans."
Come share your love of horror and My Bloody Valentine with Mihalka and other exciting HORROR-RAMA guests such as Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead), Barbara Magnolfi (Suspiria), Nivek Ogre (Repo! The Genetic Opera), Barbie Wilde (Hellraiser II), Lisa Marie (Ed Wood), and so many more this weekend in Toronto: November 1 & 2.
