If you were already exited about Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL, you’re not alone. Anthrax’s Scott Ian will be transforming into Jack the Ripper courtesy of Joel Harlow Designs. Ian will morph into the feared killer in real-time, part of Joel Harlow Designs’ “Blood & Guts” exhibit. More guests have been announced, including Kane Hodder, P.J. Soles, Slash, and Tom Savini. Orchid are among the bands performing live. The inaugural Kirk Von Hammett Fear FestEvil takes place February 6-8, 2014 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California.
“I’ve always loved horror, I’ve always loved collecting, I’ve always loved weird and macabre things and I’ve always loved conventions,” confessed 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!!!”
