This October in the run up to Halloween, Manchester, England gathers together some of the fantastic names from the horror film world, all under one roof and all for you to meet, see and hear in 2022’s For The Love Of Horror.
Whilst there are still a few months until the big event so many great guests have been announced and Im keeping an eye on the website to see if there are even more surprises. Whichever era of horror is your favourite, the team at For The Love Of Horror have you covered (but not in blood) For starters there’s a great Dog Soldiers reunion going on with Sean Pertwee (Wells) , Darren Morfitt (Spoon) , Craig Conway(who played the role of the Camper who is savagely eaten!), and the films director Neil Marshall I have met all of these except Darren and can see that they are all such lovely cool people and I do urge you to meet them and have a chat if you can.
Heading back to the 80s, there’s Nightmare on Elm Street’s one and only Heather Langenkamp,(Nancy) there’s An American Werewolf in London star David Naughton (David) , Halloween legends James Jude Courtney(Halloween Kills and Halloween 2018) , Nick Castle (Halloween 78, 2018, and Halloween Kills), Tommy Lee Wallace (Director of Halloween III: Season of the Witch) , Scout Taylor Compton (Laurie Strode from the Rob Zombie Halloween films), Danielle Harris (Halloween IV and V, and Rob Zombies Halloween II) , PJ Soles Halloween 78, and 2018) , American Horror Story’s star Naomi Grossman will be there and I did speak with her on an episode of my podcast once and shes great! , Terrifier stars David Howard Thornton, Samantha Scaffidi, and director Damien Leone will be there and just incase thats not enough for you The Team are For The Love of Horror are also bringing in , Fright Night stars William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, and Stephen Geoffreys, From Dusk Till Dawn’s Tom Savini (who ive also met and is one of the nicest people ever!) , The original Jason from 1980’s Friday the 13th, Ari Lehman will be there , Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors, Ira Heiden (Will) , Jennifer Rubin (Taryn), Penelope Sudrow (Jennifer), Ken Sagoes (Kincaid) , Bradley Gregg (Phillip) , and Rodney Eastman (Joey) will be there too . So this would be a great chance to take along Dream Warriors poster and get those signatures on there. (I might do just that)
For me though whilst this guest list is amazing (and I may end up having to sell my soul to a devil or even THE devil to get all the signatures and photos that id like to be, but this guy is the top of my list!
Harvey Stephens from The Omen who played Damien Thorn and who terrified me as a child (and still some times as an adult) Im sure Harvey is lovely though but ill make sure not to have a cross anywhere near me. Oh and whilst we stick with classic horror The Shining twins Louise and Lisa Burns will also be there for you to meet. What a brilliant list of horror icons all over one weekend and all in one place.If im there Ill see you there!!
