Big Gay Horror Fan believes some things are worth traveling for. Pepto flavored ice pops, a shop selling the latest slasher flick attire – and, last but not least, the Osh Kosh Horror Film Festival!
The brain child of writer-director John Pata (Dead Weight, Better Off Undead), this yearly Wisconsin highlight most recently took place on October 6th, 2012 and featured such truly ambitious offerings as A Cadaver Christmas, Tony Wash’s A Chance in Hell, the haunting Divination (starring genre legend Lynn Lowry) and the premiere of Cory Udler’s latest counter culture masterpiece, IDS Rising.
Here, Carolyn Baker from Screaming Like Banshees (www.screaminglikebanshees.com) discusses her directorial effort The Christmas Mummy with Pata. Like a steam punk comedy mixed with the Universal Horror of old, The Christmas Mummy was a definite festival highlight.
The Slasher Studios crew (www.slasherstudios.com) discuss their offerings – noir style Blood Brothers and devoted slasher throwback Teddy.
The joy shouting out from the above photo proves that there is ONLY one place in Osh Kosh to food break during a festival – and that is the awesome Fat Mama’s! Great service, delicious food (try the pulled pork sandwich, dripping with sweet coleslaw) and a fun atmosphere! Check it :
Here, Pata engages in the art of the multi-task as he works the concession counter with the brilliant Ashley Lamers – a woman who always proves that Osh Kosh folks are the bloody coolest!
In the theater with Studio Boo’s always active Chad Hawks and compelling literary chanteuse Christine Fugate!
Celebrities? They got celebrities! IDS Rising‘s Cory Udler (www.incestdeathsquad.com) shows off his collaboration with Ted V. Mikels – Demon Haunt! A perfect way to end a round-up, if there is one!
