Although World Horror Convention 2007 is predominantly a literary event, we will have a film programme running in the King Room (2nd level meeting rooms) throughout the Friday and Saturday, from 10:00 am to midnight. Much of this will, of course, be based around our Guests of Honour, but we will also be programming some special events for those horror film fans who are attending.
We are delighted to present a very special preview of Rojak Films' CHILL (Dir: Serge Rodnunsky). Loosely inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's short story "Cool Air", CHILL is a new contemporary horror film starring Thomas Calabro (TV's MELROSE PLACE), Ashley Laurence (HELLRAISER), Shaun Kurtz and James Russo (THE NINTH GATE).
For fans of the old Universal and Hammer horror films, we are also pleased to present to Canadian premiere of Colorbox Studios' THE WITCH'S DUNGEON: 40 YEARS OF CHILLS (Dir: Dennis Vincent). Celebrating the non-profit Bristol, Connecticut, museum of "Hollywood Horrors" created four decades ago by Cortlandt Hull, this fascinating and entertaining two-hour documentary features appearances by a host of celebrities and fans, including Christopher Lee, Sara Karloff, Bela G. Lugosi, Ron Chaney, Dick Smith, Tom Savini, June Foray, Basil Gogos, Zacherley the Cool Ghoul, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Ben Chapman, Ricou Browning, Michael Ripper, Veronica Carlson, Caroline Munro, Rex Reason, Dee Wallace Stone, Bob Burns, Forrest J Ackerman and many others.
To ensure that everybody has the opportunity to see CHILL and THE WITCH'S DUNGEON: 40 YEARS OF CHILLS, they will be shown on both the Friday and the Saturday at various times. Please refer to the Film Programme in your delegate bag for details of these and other screenings.
