About this show

Fear-Mongers: Fireside Chats about Horror Films enlists top-shelf artists to pay homage to their guiltiest pleasures: horror movies. Our guest lecturers will present a personal essay on those particular celluloid terrors that continue to resonate with them today. And for the truly putrid piece de resistance, each evening's installment will include a "Behind the Slashers Studio" with a special celebrity guest. We here at Fear-Mongers focus solely on those roles that haunt our star's IMDB page, having candid conversations about life on the set of their most infamous films and their relationship with the genre. Part talk-show, part reading-series, Fear-Mongers is an entertaining evening for both horror fans and general spectators alike. Come if you dare... Guests scheduled to appear include New York Times critic Jason Zinoman, Denis O'Hare (True Blood), Ashley C. Williams (The Human Centipede), Gunnar Hansen ("Leatherface," The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), JT Petty (director, S&Man), Dennis Paoli (screenwriter, Re-Animator), Douglas Cheek (director, C.H.U.D.), Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (The Stand graphic novel), Adam Lowenstein (author of Shocking Representation: Historical Trauma, National Cinema, and the Modern Horror Film), Robin Sherwood (Tourist Trap), Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni (Argento's Opera), Mariano Baino (director, Dark Waters), Filippo Brunamonti, Steven C. Boone, Abe Goldfarb and James Comtois.
