Green Monster Phoenix
According to our calculations, at least 176 days remain until Halloween rolls around, which might seem like an absolute eternity to some folks. Then again, if you're the organizers of the the Mad Monster Party - the annual convention focused on horror flicks and slasher films - every day is probably Halloween.
Ditto for any of the horror fans, gothy types, groovy ghoulies, and creepy-looking cosplayers that will flock to the three-day event, which will haunt the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort from Friday, May 8, until Sunday, May 10.

And a bloody good time will await them, especially if they're interested in meeting the actors and actresses that starred in some landmark films from the horror genre, either as a dastardly or demonic villain or one of their many victims.
There will be plenty of monsters afoot at the Phoenix edition of the Mad Monster Party (or at least the actors that portrayed them on the silver and small screen), including Pinhead from Hellraiser, Friday the 13th's Jason Vorhees, Captain Spaulding from both House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, and even he Crypt Keeper from HBO's Tales from the Crypt.
The lineup of special guests isn't limited strictly to horror, as the stars of a few sci-fi favorites, action movies, and cult classics (as well as a few professional wrestling heroes) are also scheduled to be at the Mad Monster Party.
Most of the big-name guests appearing at the weekend-long event to sign autographs and pose for photos while several will also sit in for special Q&A sessions or panels dedicated to some of their most renowned projects and roles. (For instance, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Stephen Geoffreys, and other from the 1985 flick Fright Night will participate in a special 30th anniversary reunion panel).
We've looked over the rogue's gallery of special guests that will be at the Mad Monster Party this year and have selected five of those that we're most excited to see. And like the event itself, our picks include more than just scream queens and death-dispensing bad guys.
Jake "The Snake" Roberts
Although he's never starred in any slasher flicks or cinematic thrillers, pro wrestling legend Jake "The Snake" Roberts spent the last couple of decades living in something akin to a horror story. Or, at the very least, his own personal hell. After becoming one of biggest superstars of the '80s in the WWE (then known as the World Wrestling Federation), Roberts descended into a morass of drug addiction, broken relationships, and career failures, ultimately becoming a wrestling has-been who seemed destined for a tragic end. (And depending on whom you ask, he might've been a partial inspiration for Mickey Rourke's character in The Wrestler.)
