Don Mancini was very
appreciative for both the award and that his
"Child's Play" movies have kept his career going over the past two
In addition to being
frightened of her own movies, Shawnee Smith
appeared to be creeped out by her Eyegore Award too.
Corey liked his award and
was glad to hear that everybody there was
so excited about his upcoming "Lost Boys 2" movie. Here's hoping it
doesn't make the Frog Brothers crap all over our childhood memories.
The Lost Boys was a perfect vampire movie, doing a sequel seems
like a bad idea.
Sherri Moon seemed
unimpressed with the event and wanted the party to get wilder.
David actually came because
his sister, Patricia Arquette, couldn't make it that night
so he was accepting the award on her behalf. He explained that he didn't
this event wasn't a costume party, so he was the only one there in
accepted on behalf of Roger Corman who was stuck in traffic
and turned around to go home... bummer. I was really hoping to meet him.
And to end the show, they
all got on stage for a few more press shots. Huzzah.
Scared of her movies as she
may be, Shawnee Smith had
no reserves about choking the life out of me. Rock on, Shawnee.
At this point the camera
decided that it would start adding its own fiery
effects to any photos we took under the red lights at the party...
Or maybe it was just because Corey Feldman and I make such a hot couple.
Sorry Corey, you're a really nice guy 'n all, but my heart belongs to
Debbie Lee Carrington also
showed up, presumably because
she was a stunt double in Mancini's Bride of Chucky flick.
show was over, we all just hung out as everybody enjoyed the free booze
and hors d'oeuvres along with the horror tunes by the band. It was a real
nice event and hopefully it will continue to grow so they can eventually
televise it for the public to see.
Now it was
time to head out and get the full Halloween Horror Nights experience. What
I didn't know is that we would be given VIP passes (ooo la la) which
allowed us to skip to the front of the line for all of the gory mazes. A
night of instant horrific gratification? Count me in!
Upon exiting the theater
where the Eyegore party was, we found ourselves walking down a street
filled with smoke, strobes and some bloody characters walking around...
This guy was promising to
give people the closest shave in town
and I gotta say, I'm inclined to believe he was telling the truth.
What up, dawg.
That's what happens when you don't put suntan lotion on your face.
The smoke machines were
running on full blast all night long.
Believe it or not, this was one of the less smoky areas.
Satan took a backseat to
Freddy, Jason and Leatherface this night.
He was stuck selling glowing devil horns from a grocery cart. Poor Satan.
A few seconds later, that fog machine in the back made
it damned near impossible to even see this skeleton.
Gotta love this vintage
funeral casket cart.
The Terminator 2 show seemed
a bit out of place with all of the other ones.
I mean, even Bill & Ted had an "Excellent Halloween Adventure", which
can find footage of online if any of you care to check it out.
