"Greetings Fantasmo Fans:
Prepare yourself for the ULTIMATE Fantasmo - an all-night movie
marathon that will take place after the indescribably wonderful
convention! Starting at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 8, and ending
the wee hours of Sunday, October 9, Team Fantasmo challenges you to
endure an evening filled with the wildest cult horror films ever
We'll kick things off with a rare screening of Dr. Madblood's
Howl (circa 1984), hosted by members of Team Madblood. But that's
the beginning! In addition, there will be special guests along for
ride, as well as a few surprises we dare not mention. Also, be sure
come dressed in your scariest horror/monster-themed costume (awards
will be given for the best dressed). All this, and the incredibly
insightful commentary you've come to know and love - it just doesn't
The fun begins at 8:00 p.m. and the doors will be locked at 10:00
No admittance will be permitted after 10:00 p.m. - so don't be late!!
Do not miss what is sure to be the most important intellectual event
this or any year!!
Note: The ratings of the evening's feature movies should be
equivalent to an "R" and not appropriate for younger audiences.
Coming November 4th - Fantasmo Episode 7: New York, New York"
Sorry for how late this is but I just found out too. I'll try to be
there and if I can in costume. Our library ROCKS! XD
