The largest event of its kind in the Carolinas, the Mad Monster Party horror convention will return to Charlotte, North Carolina in February 2018, and the lineup of genre icons already announced looks epic, including Nick Castle, who played Michael Myers/TheShape in John Carpenter’s Halloween; Ken Kerzinger who played Jason Voorhees in Freddy vs. Jason; and Robert Englund, the legend who is Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street films.
Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Tombstone, The Abyss) is also among the headliners, along with genre favorite Lance Henrikson (Pumpkinhead, Near Dark), both of which are part of an Aliens reunion that also includes Jennette Goldstein.
Katharine Isabelle (American Mary, Ginger Snaps, Hannibal) joins Englund and Kerzinger for a Freddy vs. Jason reunion, while former Elm Street residents Amanda Wyss and Tuesday Knight round out the guest list that has been revealed so far.
UPDATE: Peter Criss, drummer and co-founder of the classic rock band Kiss, is also coming to Charlotte.
More guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks, and this post will be updated as the news is released.
