William Forsythe is one of the best character actors in the business, with distinguished credits dating back to Raising Arizona, the convict drama Weeds and Paul Schrader's Patty Hearst. His Devil's Rejects castmate, the immortal Sid Haig, lent his bug-eyed savoir-faire to Jack Hill's best films, John Boorman's Point Blank and Jackie Brown. Chris Sarandon was Al Pacino's skittish lover in Dog Day Afternoon, the foppish prince in The Princess Bride and the seductive vampire lord in Fright Night. Ken Foree kicked ass in Dawn of the Dead; Jason Mewes is Silent Bob's filthy foil; Ellen Sandweiss was molested by maples in The Evil Dead; and Lloyd Kaufman--hell, the auteur of Troma Films may be the subversive mad genius of American movies. Do we have your attention? A movie with this cast would be too good for an Oscar--but for one weekend, they're all scheduled to appear at Lone Wolf Body Art's 8th annual Tattoo and Horror Festival. There are too many guests to list here, so see fullmooninc.net. Admission is $15 for one day or $35 for the weekend.
