Charles Band Invites the City of Houston on a Datedeadmanwalkin
Cult horror film director Charles Band is giving away all the tickets to his Horror Road Show stop in Houston at the Meridian on October 6, 2005 in an effort to entertain and amuse the residents and guests of Houston, Texas. "This is my invitation to the Houston community in appreciation for their exhaustive humanitarian efforts towards the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I would like to host the residents and guests of Houston with a fun-filled evening of horror and imagination," said Band.
The evening will feature Charles Band with several celebrity surprise guests including Alex Band (son and lead singer of The Calling) sharing rare clips and behind the scene moments, contests, bizarre audience participation, Q&A and signing session, a unique puppet and doll auction, and a chance to win a part and be killed in an upcoming Full Moon feature! This event promises to be a night Houston will not soon forget!
The visionary behind such classics as Puppetmaster, Trancers, Blood Dolls, Decadent Evil, and the Subspecies vampire series, Band helped launch the careers of many of Hollywood’s A-list including Demi Moore, Viggo Mortenson, Helen Hunt, Kelly Preston and many more.
Charles Band began making films in 1975 at the tender age of 21. A pioneer in the entertainment industry, in 1978 he had the foresight to see the potential of the home video market as founder of Media Home Entertainment, the first independent video distribution company in North America. In 1990 he founded his own production studio, Full Moon Features – a final resting place for his twisted imagination. With a catalog that boasts almost 250 titles, Band has created the ultimate science fiction/horror/fantasy empire that enjoys the envious position of instant label recognition.
