“SQUIRM’s” Jeff Lieberman joins NYC’s Forbidden Planet signing of “FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER”

Veteran horror director Jeff Lieberman, creator of cult classics including SQUIRM, BLUE SUNSHINE and JUST BEFORE DAWN, has joined the growing list of horror celebrities who have come on board the signing event for FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER at New York City’s Forbidden Planet (832 Broadway near Union Square; [212] 473-1576). The event will take place this Thursday, April 2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Lieberman’s films also include the sardonic Halloween horror film SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER, the alien-invasion-via-video opus REMOTE CONTROL and the mad-science TV movie DOCTOR FRANKEN. Appearing with him will be genre all-stars such as: splatter king Tom Savini; BASKET CAST, BRAIN DAMAGE and FRANKENHOOKER auteur Frank Henenlotter; legendary FAMOUS MONSTERS cover artist Basil Gogos; Larry Fessenden (director of THE LAST WINTER, HABIT, WENDIGO); Debbie Rochon (actress, Fango columnist and former host of Sirius’ much-missed FANGORIA RADIO); and screenwriter/playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (CARRIE and THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN, Broadway shows SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK and upcoming AMERICAN PSYCHO). In addition, staffers Tony Timpone, Thomas DeFeo, Michael Gingold, W.R. Mohalley and Ken Hanley will be on hand to sign as well. Copies of FANGORIA: COVER TO COVER will be available for purchase, but autographs will be free, as they should be! (Please note, celebs will be signing the book only.)

Starting Tonight! Hobo With A Shotgun with Director Q&A

When Shawn Lewis of Rotten Cotton/Black Devil Doll fame told me I had to see Hobo With A Shotgun, I knew that I was in for the real deal and not some “Grindhouse” cash-in, like so many seem to be trying to do lately.  Shawn is a no BS kinda guy, which you could tell by looking at Rotten Cotton’s hate-mail responses.  Anyway, the man was 100% right and I loved every blood-soaked minute of it.

Anyone who is remotely interested probably knows the amazing story behind director Jason Eisener’s success… Which I will not get into cause you can read it all in the newest issue of Rue Morgue available right here at Forbidden Planet. (shameless!)

What I will tell you is to clear your schedule this weekend for a double dose of exploitation madness, cause Hobo With A Shotgun is coming to The Village East Cinema.  The director will be in attendance, and there will be special Q&A’s at each midnight screening moderated by respected genre personalities Jeff Lieberman (Friday) and William Lustig (Saturday).  There is also a Hobo costume contest, so throw on your worst and make a night of it!
