Win Weekend Passes To Days Of The Dead Atlanta (Feb. 1-3)


By far the biggest thing to happen to the Atlanta horror scene, and definitely to SOC, in 2012 was the coming of Days of the Dead.  Atlanta finally got its own horror convention, and it was one hell of a party.  If you weren’t there, then you missed a legendary weekend.  Not to worry though, because like all the horror greats…IT’S BAAAAACK!  Days of the Dead Atlanta 2 will be taking place February 1-3.  This year it’s at the Atlanta Sheraton Downtown Hotel.  Yes, Days of the Dead migrated into the belly of the beast this year, and the Sheraton finally gets to host a kick ass convention.  The guest list is absolutely sick, and if all of the DOTD cons from last year are any indication, Adolfo and the gang have an amazing time and some killer surprises in store for the fear faithful.  Then there’s the revelry and debauchery that ensues when a bunch of drunken horror nuts get together, but the less said about that in print the better.  Trust me, it’s something you just have to experience.  Look at this list of your favorite horror icons that will be on hand to sign your autographs, take pictures with you, and make you the envy of all of your fanboy friends…

  1. If you haven’t already, go HERE and like the Son of Celluloid Facebook page.
  2. If you haven’t already, go HERE and like the Days of the Dead Facebook page.
  3. Leave a comment on this post with your email address (so I can contact you if you win), the guest you’d be the most stoked to meet, and a question you’d most like to ask them.
It’s just that easy.  On January 18, I’ll draw three winners at random, and those three will each receive a pair of weekend passes to experience the horror geek nirvana known as Days of the Dead so you can party with me and a few hundred of the dirty south’s finest freaks.  See you there.

My question would be for Joshua Leonard. I'd want to know what he thinks of our modern horror films such as the Paranormal Activity and if he thinks Blair Witch Project played any part in societies need for documentary type horror.

I'd have to meet Tom Savini and ask him just how much special effects makeup and design he created over time doing all those productions and what kind of knowledge did he have of the field going into it..... and a whole lot more lol.

There are too many awesome people on the guest list to narrow this down. I have questions for all of them as well.

I want to give PJ Soles a hug... again :)

Danny Trejo - What research did he do to play the major fucking asshole rapist in Con Air (I know that's not a horror movie, but that is definitely a villainous role)
OR
Butch Patrick - What made him want to do the Munsters?? (which I absolutely loved watching!!)
And
I would just run away from Sid Haig and Tony Todd ;)

Met many of them last year, but I'd like to spend more time with Linnea Quigley and ask her about her work with animals. Also, I have GOT to find out what Butch Patrick thought about that mercifully aborted show Mockingbird Lane. Eddie Munster was such a whiny little putz in it! You didn't specify that we should confine ourselves to guests who'd be attending the con, but the person I'd really like to meet is Linda Blair. I'd ask her about how Friedkin treated her on set as opposed to how he treated everyone else, and of course, also about her work with animals. I suppose it's too much to ask to meet Rob Zombie and Sheri Moon Zombie, but a boy can dream, can't he? I'd ask them if they'd just adopt me.

I would first like to give a big , sloppy, life changing smootch to the Son, of Celuilod. Then I would find the great PJ Soles. I would use my mad psychological skills and say "totally" a bunch of times. She would then fall under my subcontious spell and say "Totally" back to me. To hear the amazing PJ say "Totally" in conversation to me would make my existence worth while. I could then die knowing I have had a"Totally" rocking life! Then I would thank the Son of Celluliod with a shot of Jameson. "Totally."

I would ask him if he would take a picture with me:)

Thats about all I could say since I am sure I will be googly-eyed the whole time.

Most of these guys, I'd have to fight myself not to just clam up and squee at them like an idiot. If I could only interact with one, though, it would be Tony Todd. Candyman was MY horror flick when I was younger and the theme is still a ringtone on my phone. I'd wanna know about the road to Candyman for him, how he got the role, what worked in his favor, etc.

My boyfriend and I went VIP last year for our four year anniversary and got a poster signed by Bill Moseley and Sid Haig. We were so excited to see the lineup this year but due to no extra funds, we couldn't afford tickets this year. Would LOVE to get the rest of the autographs from the cast members of House of 1000 Corpses. I'd also like to ask Danny Trejo what it feels like to be the most badass action star, ever. Also, Tony Todd, so I can hear him say, "Candyman."

Tom Savini. I admire his effects work and would most like to ask how he got started and what the favorite thing he has worked on effects wise is. IT would be a fantastic addition in to my blog.

Definitely Danny Trejo! If I were going to ask him anything it would probably be to know what his favorite film or show has been to work on out of his massive resume or how it was to have a love scene with Maggie Gyllenhaal on Sherry Baby.
