Orlando’s Spooky Empire announces additional guests for March convention


Orlando’s Spooky Empire horror con has announced a few more guests since my story from last week, and a couple of events as well. Spooky  Empire presents their convention bi-annually, with March 22 – 24 being their first event this year.

Spooky Empire list of talent includes:

Ricou Browning, who played the Gill-man in Creature from the Black Lagoon, Revenge of the Creature and The Creature Walks Among Us in all of the under water scenes (other actors portrayed the creature in the land scenes). Browning is also the co-creator of the series Flipper.

Actor Carel Struycken joins Christina Ricci and Christopher Lloyd, who co-starred with him in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values. Struycken appeared as Lurch in both movies, and he also played the Giant in Twin Peaks and 2017’s Twin Peaks: The Return. Most recently he was seen in the Netflix movie Gerald’s Game as the Moonlight Man.

Eugene Clark will also be appearing. He played head zombie “Big Daddy” in Land of the Dead, and (trivia alert) he also appeared as Mufasa in the Ontario Broadway Production of The Lion King.

Edward Furlong will be joining the above talent as well. The star of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Pet Sematary 2 and American History X is a welcome addition for sci-fi and horror fans.
