Joining THE BRAIN composer Paul Zaza at HORROR-RAMA is veteran actor George Buza, who played the brutish "Verna" in the 1988 Canadian horror classic! Buza is also familiar to cult movie fans for his memorable appearances in films like David Cronenberg's FAST COMPANY, the Cinepix romp MEATBALLS III, STIR OF ECHOES II and A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY as well as TV's MANIAC MANSION. Buza has also done extensive voice acting for animated programs like DROIDS, TALES FROM THE CRYPTKEEPER and X-MEN, where he has long played the character "Beast". HORROR-RAMA is thrilled to showcase this talented performer at our 2019 show!
HORROR-RAMA is incredibly excited to welcome Canadian composer Paul Zaza, whose rich and evocative original soundtracks for classic genre films are beloved around the world. From his extensive work with late director Bob Clark on films like MURDER BY DECREE and PORKY’S (which he co-composed with fellow artist and HORROR-RAMA alumni Carl Zittrer), to his terrifying scores for iconic chillers PROM NIGHT, CURTAINS, HELLO MARY LOU: PROM NIGHT II, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, THE BRAIN and so many more, Zaza is widely recognized as one of the all-time greats. Come and meet an icon of sinister sound, only at HORROR-RAMA!
HORROR-RAMA is frothing at the mouth to announce our next guest, Italian/American actress, musician and artist Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni! Coralina will be appearing alongside her DEMONS 2 and GHOST SON director Lamberto Bava, telling tales of making macabre movies all over the world.
Though indeed perhaps best known for her turn as fanged birthday girl-wraith Sally in DEMONS 2, Cataldi-Tassoni is Italian horror royalty full stop, with notable supporting performances - most in which she gets murdered in high style - in Dario Argento's OPERA, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and MOTHER OF TEARS as well as gory Italo-shockers like EVIL CLUTCH and THE DEVILS OF MONZA.
Coralina is also a revered composer and multi-media artist whose works have been seen and heard all around the world. Find out more about our Coralina at www.Coralina.net and come and meet the lady herself, only at HORROR-RAMA!
HORROR-RAMA is thrilled to announce the coming of maestro LAMBERTO BAVA to our sixth, startling show in his FIRST EVER CANADIAN APPEARANCE! The legendary Italian director who - along with producer and co-writer Dario Argento - brought you the ultimate '80s gore classics DEMONS and DEMONS 2, learned the business of bloodshed from his father, the founder of Italian fright, Mario Bava and served as assistant director on films like PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES and HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON. But in 1980, Lamberto busted loose on his own with the lurid and disturbing shocker MACABRE and then in 1983 with the violent neo-giallo A BLADE IN THE DARK before blasting his fanged and ferocious Sergio Stivaletti-sculpted Demons into the upper-echelons of horror lore.
Lamberto Bava is one of the true icons of Italian terror...and we have him.
Come and meet the master ONLY at HORROR-RAMA!
