Horror Legend Tom Savini Wants to See You at HORROR-RAMA (Nov 1 & 2)



Among all the amazing guests scheduled to appear at HORROR-RAMA this weekend for Toronto's only fan convention dedicated exclusively to horror, a bonafide horror legend will be walking the halls of 99 Sudbury. Tom Savini, the legendary special effects master behind Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th, Creepshow and so many more classic and influential films, wants to see you at Horror-Rama! We reached out to Savini to ask him what he loves about meeting and hanging out with horror fans.

"It's like being in an aquarium and so many varieties of fish swim by for you to look at," Savini says. "Or a fancy artsy parade is constantly going by with fans from little kids to professional adults, doctors, lawyers, policemen, soldiers, and sometimes I learn an awful lot about what's going on in their lives, and the movies they like, and the effects or directing work of mine they love. We did some of these movies thirty years ago but as long as the companies still put out different editions and keep our name in the public eye there will be the many fans who come to these things."

Fans of Savini's work can look forward to meeting and great the horror great as well as learning more about his exciting upcoming projects. "I am also working on a documentary on my work called SMOKE AND MIRRORS, Savini tells Horror in the Hammer, "and I will be showing a ten minute teaser of that. Also working on a large coffee table book of my life with lots and lots of behind the scene photos and interviews."

Meet Tom Savini and other exciting horror guests such as Barbara Magnolfi (Suspiria), Nivek Ogre (Repo! The Genetic Opera), Lisa Marie (Ed Wood), George Mihalka (My Bloody Valentine) and so many more this weekend in Toronto at HORROR-RAMA: November 1 & 2.
