Halloween 5‘s Don Shanks has been added to the celebrity guest lineup at the Mad Monster Party convention in North Carolina this March, where he will be joined by the director and stars of Smothered for the film’s world premiere screening.
Directed by John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard), Smothered also stars horror icons Bill Moseley (House of 1,000 Corpses, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th VII-X, Hatchet), and R.A. Mihailoff (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3).
The comedy flips the tables on the slasher genre, as these four former masked men of the screen become the hunted, stalked by Brea Grant of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II.
The first ever public viewing of the film is set for Friday, March 21 during the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is happening March 21-23, featuring Shanks, Schneider, Moseley, and Mihailoff on the guest list and set to attend a Q&A panel following the the screening.
Other guests coming to Mad Monster include Tom Atkins (Halloween III, The Fog), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Escape From New York), William Shatner (Star Trek), Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, Rob Zombie’s Halloween), and Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Hatchet III).
