On February 6th through 8th, 2014 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, lifelong horror enthusiast and METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett will launch his first annual horror convention, dubbed Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL.
Created to honor the weird, the wonderful, the eclectic, and the things that make your hair stand up on end, the heavy doors of collector/curator/historian/guardian Kirk Von Hammett’s crypt will be opened to the public to display the finest acquisitions in his extensive collection of horror memorabilia which includes rare movie posters & props, costumes, models, masks, and toys from various eras.
"I've always loved horror, I've always loved collecting, I've always loved weird and macabre things and I've always loved conventions,” confesses Hammett. “So what could be better than having your own Fear FestEviL where ALL those great and crazy things can be enjoyed by like-minded people under one pretty cool roof?! Nothing!!! And because I've seen some conventions turn from back-room gatherings of like-minded dorks into mainstream hipster extravaganzas, rest assured that it's my intention to make this a great experience where all things horror, weird, and nerdy are celebrated! So come one and all!!!"
Already confirmed to attend as panelists will be Slash, makeup FX legend Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), Tom Savini (Dawn Of The Dead), and John A. Russo (Night Of The Living Dead).
Private “Crypt” tours, signing sessions, and musical performances by Nuclear Blast Bay Area artists CARCASS, DEATH ANGEL and ORCHID will also be included in the three-day event.
