The Legendary Drive In Movie Critic, JOE BOB BRIGGS, is making a trek North of the border to serve up a Southern-Sized helping of sleaze and cheese! As one of our most requested guests, we are super duper psyched to have the man himself for the entire weekend.

Stay tuned for details on a special classic film screening, hosted in traditional Joe Bob style, taking place over the weekend and included FREE with con admission.

The most talked about horror film in recent history, TERRIFIER, is still polarizing and shocking fans around the world. In what seems to be a new york minute, the now iconic ART THE CLOWN can be seen all over peoples social media posts, fan art, and gory memes. The character is an instant classic.

The man under the make up, DAVID HOWARD THORNTON, is making his first ever Canadian convention appearance at Shock Stock 2019 and can’t wait to scare the living shit out of all his Canadian victims fans for an unforgettable weekend.

The man behind TERRIFIER, director Damien Leone, will be joining his creation ART THE CLOWN at Shock Stock 2019! Damien has been working for over a decade in the horror industry, crafting his creatures with makeup effects as well as writing and directing credits on his features. 

Damien will be sharing his insight and his craft with fans on Saturday April 27th for the Forest City Film Festival’s Industry Workshop. Fans can see actor David Howard Thornton transformed at the hands of Damien into Art while he tells stories of behind the scenes and offers some do’s and don’ts about how the makeup transcends to the screen and beyond.

Also, don’t forget to book your photo op with David and Damien, with David in Full Costume! It will be an experience that will forever haunt you in your nightmares! 

The “Sexy Sax Man” himself, TIM CAPPELLO, has been one of the most requested guests we’ve ever had! And now he’s coming down to jam with the fans for three days of thrills at Shock Stock 2019! Photo Ops Available to book now.

I Still Believe Tim will want to perform a song on Saturday night at the afterparty, so make sure you get a hotel room to make sure you don’t miss the performance and party of the year! 

She’s gone toe to toe with hoards of radioactive Zombies and stood tall against the most advanced killer mall robots. Now, superstar KELLI MARONEY faces her most intense weekend yet – the SHOCK STOCK WEEKEND! 

Kelli has been on our radar since year one and we’re super pleased to be bringing an icon like her down to the show to see her fans. Kelli will be in attendance all 3 days.

I don’t really want to get into details… but the Shock Stock goons owe a lot of money to SLEAZY P MARTINI, and he’s decided its time to come collect.

This extraordinarily handsome man has been “managing finances” for the scumdogs of the universe, GWAR, and now he wants to manage your finances too! Sleazy P will be at the event all weekend long.

It ain’t a proper Shock Stock weekend without our dear FELISSA ROSE. Since she had to miss out last year due to a shooting schedule, she’s EXTRA pumped to get down with the greatest fans in the world – YOU! 

Felissa is always on the go, being involved in over a dozen projects with many more in the can waiting to be released, you can always be sure Felissa has lots of gory details to share on whats next for horror’s queen of the screams.

The great MAURIZIO GUARINI will be bringing some new GOBLIN treats for his Shock Stock family for another ALL NIGHTER FRIGHTER! Maurizio has been busy working on new material both for his solo projects and with Italy’s biggest musical act. Be sure to stop by and say hello! 

Also the maestro himself might feel like jammin a tune or too out with his Sprocket Damage pals on Saturday Night, so be sure to stay awake as long as you can …

“Putrid” Matt Carr is an American freelance illustrator since 2003.

The one and only BILL ZEBUB is making his triumphant return to Shock Stock 2019! One of the most beloved guests of all time, Bill is the kind of filmmaker that creates one of a kind movies. Whether you love or hate his work, there’s no denying that his films are in a class of their own.

We at Shock Stock LOVE Bill’s movies, and we’re extremely happy to have the Canadian Premiere of his new film, CLOWNA NOSTRA, at the event. Joining Bill will be one of the stars of the film, actor BRIAN OGLE.

Another original Wild Man, Michael magGot ( aka director Michael Todd Schneider) is once again bringing the real to Shock Stock. Be sure to check him out at the Taboo Textiles booth and BE REBORN!

The Toy Butcher himself, MIKE THAIN, has been coming to Shock Stock for years, bringing his dark and fascinating creations to the show to share a little bit of madness with the fans. Be sure to see the TERRIFYING toys but look out, they may bite! 

Since before they were even able to reach the top shelf at Blockbuster ( Yasmina probably still couldn’t reach it today ), the girls of the WITCH FINGER HORROR PODCAST have been addicted to the crimson sprays and overscan lines of the great VHS horror years, much like the rest of the Shock Stock maniacs. Now, some years later, they’ve become one of the internets most popular horror podcasts with their loud belches and humorous insight into some of the era’s greatest gems. Morgan, Yasmina, and Megan love Shock Stock, and Canada’s #1 horror destination brings them back again to share another live podcast  – and this year promises to be the WILDEST yet! 

I don’t think any Shock Stock would be complete without the addition of these handsome bastards! Orbax and Pepper, the MONSTERS OF SCHLOCK, are our wonderful hosts for the annual CRYSTAL SHOCKER AWARDS taking place this year on Friday, April 26th. It’s always one of the highlights of the weekend.

Unfortunately, due to an unexpected extension in recovery from surgery, KLEIO VALENTIEN has informed us that she will be unable to attend Shock Stock 2019. We wish Kleio a speedy recovery, and we know that once fully healed she will be even more excited to see her Shock Stock fans.

Guests are subject to change. Guests charge nominal fees for autographs and photos. Shock Stock will always be #TheReal .
