Well, it was inevitable, something like this always happens at the last minute. For reasons unknown, Scott Grimes got his work schedule for The Orville and has to work on Saturday. Some quick phone calls later and Peter Macon came to the rescue. He is stepping in to replace Scott at StarFest. Maybe next year Scott will be able to get Seth McFarland to replace him, eh?
After taking some time off HorrorFest is back! This year we have revamped our program and are starting the scares on Friday night at StarFest. Our Friday kick-off contains some great programming, including the Denver Premiere of Christopher Mihm’s Guns of the Apocolypse. Then we want to invite everyone to come up to our room on the mezzanine for a mixer so you can meet with other fans of the horror genre and talk about the weird and strange. The HorrorFest directors also want to get your feedback and get suggestions for future HorrorFest activities. Help us make HorrorFest what you want it to be.
