It's a film festival. A place to meet the people in the movies, behind the movies and fellow fans of the movies. A series of events celebrating classic horror and science fiction films. And, a monster memorabilia shopping center.
The Monster Bash Movie Convention is even more. It's a state of mind. A place, like Skull Island, where our imaginations were ignited and still burn behind our everyday jobs and life. The Bash is Forrest Ackerman's classic monster magazine, the local TV Horror Host, the Aurora monster models, the monster toys of all shapes and plastics.... It's a place when Halloween was eagerly awaited. It's the horror and science fiction paperback collections, and most of all it is...the movies.
The Bash is an appreciation of these fun movies that we love to be entertained by. Whether it's THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN or THE KILLER SHREWS, if you have fun watching it...that's what it's all about. A celebration of monster movies.
Our Pictures from the Weekend
Tom Savini signing our Night of the Living Dead Poster.
"Chilly Billy" Cardille signing our Night of the Living Dead Poster
Dawn Wells (Remember her? Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island) signing our WinterHawk Poster.
She was so super nice and the highlight of our trip.
The Classic Vampire display in the lobby.
These were pretty cool (wouldn't mind having them in my collection).
The detail was pretty good.
Now this guy hidden back here isn't a classic, but he's cool anyway.
This guy was at one of the vendor's booths, they were kind enough to let us snap a pic.
