I’ve been attending Monster-Mania for many years now. It’s become second nature. It’s special because I have the opportunity to see friends I don’t always get to see on a daily basis.
I get to see friends that are awesome. I also the chance to meet Actor Billy Wirth from The Lost Boys again. I met him in 2006?! For the first time. I asked Billy how he feels knowing that most likely all of still love The Lost Boys and hold it close to all of dark hearts. Billy said “it’s great. It makes me happy.” He was kind along with Actor Alex Winter.
Horror fans are some of the greatest people you will ever meet. I was finally able to meet my AMAZINGLY talented friend Lee Hoffman and her husband Ralph in-person. Lee will be working on quite a lot of new projects.
I also met Author, Christopher Michael Blake. He’s so talented. His book, PYRAMID OF THE PARASITE looks amazing. I cant wait to read it. So many talented people including Lloyd Kaufman who was there with Toxie. He was taking photos with fans.
Monster-Mania is truly a one-of-a-kind event. If you get the chance go to a convention. It’s a blast. The Hagan family truly outdoes themselves every year.
Keep an eye out for Monster-Mania October 13-15, 2023 in Hunt Valley, MD, and Monster-Mania November 10-12, 2023 at The Greater Philly Expo in Oaks, PA.
