TORONTO: “CURTAINS” Reunion Scheduled as Actress Lynne Griffin Joins HORROR-RAMANews Fangoria Staff
Toronto-based horror convention HORROR-RAMA, a two-day fan event happening in Toronto, Canada this November 1-2, 2014 (check out the preliminary news item here) has just announced its latest guest, another celebrated Canadian horror legend!
Shakespearean trained actress Lynne Griffin, she of BLACK CHRISTMAS and CURTAINS fame, will appear SUNDAY NOVEMBER 2nd ONLY at HORROR-RAMA, sitting alongside her CURTAINS co-star Lesleh Donaldson, having a few laughs, meeting fans and signing as much stuff as you can throw at her. Lovely Lynne got her big break in Canadian TV in early 1970s, before signing on to star in late director Bob Clark’s terrifying horror classic BLACK CHRISTMAS as Clare, the bubbly co-ed who gets suffocated and left in the attic; a role that would get her silently screaming face onto the movie poster itself.
Lynne joins director George Mihalka (MY BLOODY VALENTINE), actress Lesleh Donaldson (CURTAINS, DEADLY EYES) and the First Lady of Gothic Italian horror, Barbara Steele; pioneering shock rocker Nivek Ogre, of the industrial performance-art band Skinny Puppy; psychosexual horror author Michael Slade (HEADHUNTER, GHOUL); filmmaker and author Jovanka Vuckovic (JACQUELINE ESS); FX legend, actor and filmmaker, Tom Savini (DAWN OF THE DEAD, MANIAC); British born, Toronto based FX artist Paul Jones (NIGHTBREED, SILENT HILL, NURSE 3D); FRANKENHOOKER starlet Patty Mullen; costume designer Alex Kavanagh (SAW, GINGER SNAPS, LAND OF THE DEAD, REPO!) and former Tim Burton muse, actress Lisa Marie (SLEEPY HOLLOW, ED WOOD, MARS ATTACKS!).
The brainchild of Toronto cult cinema institution SUSPECT Video and its owner Luis Ceriz and FANGORIA editor Chris Alexander, HORROR-RAMA is a niche convention, bringing together legends of horror cinema and dark pop culture for an intimate and interactive couple of days in the heart of the city.
VIP Ticket packages are now available here. More guests will be announced over the next several weeks, so stay tuned and be sure to visit the HORROR-RAMA Facebook page for even more details as well as HORROR-RAMA.
