Ah yes, horror conventions. Nothing quite like them. I don’t attend many these days, they are so huge and so expensive – the ones I do make time for are still the smaller, more personal events like Cinema Wasteland or Monster Bash. Regardless, if you’ve never experienced a fan gathering then a new DVD is heading our way that is going to do its best to give you that experience. It’s titled ‘Fantasm’, we’ve talked about it a few times and the moment has finally arrived that we will all get to see it.
Nov. 11th is the debut date and here is what the project is all about:
“In an effort to understand his own fascination with the genre, horror fanatic Kyle Kuchta embarked on a journey to six horror conventions throughout the united states. Through interviews with actors, directors, horror experts and fellow fans at conventions, Kyle discovered that it’s not only the love of the genre that makes these gatherings so special, but it’s the sense of community.
Fantasm features insight from such notable names as Tom Atkins (Escape from New York), Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), Richard Johnson (The Haunting) and more, alongside the dedicate fans who attend horror conventions.”
Even going to have a handful of special feature for you:
- Original student film
- Extended interviews
- “Dinner at the Kuchta’s” featurette
- Kickstarter video
