If you're not familiar with Shock Stock, it's the feverish brain child of Jake Grimbro and James Bialkowski of Vagrancy Films. Unlike other mainstream horror conventions in Canada, Shock Stock is a fan-driven show with an emphasis on exploitation and sexploitation horror as well as VHS collectors, earning the show its title as Canada's Filthiest Horror Convention. Debuting in 2011 with Dyanne Thorne (aka. Ilsa She-Wolf of the SS) as the headlining guest, Shock Stock returned in 2012 with an even more explosive roster of horror and exploitation icons including Joe Pilato (Day of the Dead), Geretta Geretta and Bobby Rhodes (Demons), Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini (GOBLIN), and controversial porn star Johanna Angel.
This year, Shock Stock may have just topped itself this with these
5 Guests I'm Most Excited to Meet
@ Shock Stock 2013
1.) CHRISTINA LINDBERG (They Call Her One-Eye)
2.) GERRIT GRAHAM (Phantom of the Paradise)
3.) PATRICIA QUINN (The Rocky Horror Picture Show)
Live and in the flesh, Patrica Quinn (aka. Magenta) will be in the house for the Shock Stock weekend as well as a very special screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Rainbow Cinemas. Frankly, I'm a little intimidated to be meeting Quinn, who also has a role in the upcoming Rob Zombie film Lords of Salem. It doesn't get much more iconic than this!
4.) NAOMI GROSSMAN (American Horror Story: Asylum)
5.) ROBERT Z'DAR (Maniac Cop)
