GUESTS

Kane Hodder –

The legend is TRUE! Victor Crowley himself is finally out of the swamp and on to home video, so Kane’s ditching his dickersons and hittin the road for Shock Stock! Kane has been keeping it REAL in the video game world as well, revisiting the role he made iconic with his motion capture work in the new Friday the 13th video game which personally I’ve been getting my ass kicked at every night. Kane’s excited to make it back up here to Shock Stock and see all of his fans, and we can’t wait to give him the warm welcome he deserves. Kane Hodder appears courtesy of RAVEN BANNER ENTERTAINMENT.

Parry Shen –

Star of all of the Hatchet films including the NEW Victory Crowley ( out on blu ray and VOD available now ) , General Hospital (yes we said that) and the now-classic MTV teen crime flick Better Luck Tomorrow. Parry has got some history with London, so he’s super pumped to make it back to the ol’ stompin’ grounds and chill for a few days with the fans at Shock Stock.

Christy Canyon –

AVN HALL OF FAMER (Saturday & Sunday Only)

The word “legend” get’s tossed around a lot in both mainstream & adult cinematic circles but in the case of Christy Canyon the term “icon” seems much more fitting. She burst onto the scene in the early 80s first a nude model then graduated to full fledge superstar during the VHS boom of adult home entertainment. Her 100% natural bazookas and brunette looks were exactly what the industry needed as she was going “head to head” in a blonde world. She left the business in the later 80s and became a featured dancer that toured the world including many week long stints in Montreal and Toronto. Christy returned to filming as a “VIVID GIRL” in the 90s and still works for the company today burning up the airwaves on Sirus Radio. We are beyond pleased that platinum level sponsor The Stag Shop also recognized the Cultural impact Chirsty Canyon has played in the wild world of adult entertainment. Her Q&A will be one of most entertaining shoots in SHOCK STOCK history.
