At Monster Fest 14 in the Library of Chesapeake Virginia Bobby Gammonster -Internet Horror Host and Boris T Buzzard was vending under the company name “Gothic Charms” as well as signing pictures and free DVD of Monster Movie Night.

Bobby Gammonster – Internet Horror Host and including local fright-flick TV host Dr. Madblood, along with panel discussions; artists; authors; scores of vendors; fan groups; costume contests; trick-or-treating for little ghouls and gals in costume; live music; films; and screening of films.
And speaking of film, the Fest featured the Virginia premier of “Dillzilla: Titan of Terror,” written and directed by Elizabeth Pasieczny and shot entirely at locales and sites in Suffolk, Smithfield and Franklin Virginia.
This family fun flick won the “Best Family Friendly” award at the 7th annual Queens World Film Festival in New York City. Using live action, miniaturization and stop-action animation, the film tells the story of Pickleman who, after being infected by a contagion, turns violent and huge whenever he becomes angry, sort of like a cukey-brine-soaked Hulk.
Then a double creature feature of George Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead” and Hammer’s “The Plague of the Zombies.” Live music will be provided by The Sons of Frankenstein. Bring your own brains for film snacks.
