Hey guys and ghouls! Two weekends ago, I jumped back into the convention scene. You guys missed a hell of a show if you were not at this convention! Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival was held at Music City Center on May 8th, 9th, and 10th in beautiful downtown Nashville. The new convention center allowed for there to be a ton of space and some new vendors and guests. The amazing poster for this year’s festivities was done by the talented Joel Robinson and features the beautiful Stacey Dixon.
Some of the guests included Tony Todd, PJ Soles, Robert Mukes, Santiago Cirilo, Roddy Piper and one of my faves, John Dugan. I came with a few actors in mind that I wanted autographs from, the first being Sean Patrick Flanery from the Boondock Saints fame. Of course he’s also appeared in many other films such as “Powder”, “The Dead Zone”, “SAW3D”, and “Suicide Kings”. I did take a few minutes to talk to him about the 3rd Boondock Saints movie, which has been confirmed. Sean Patrick says that he is working hard with Troy Duffy writing the third movie and they are looking to begin filming in August.
Next on my list was another Boondock Saints veteran, Brian Mahoney. This was Brian’s first time at Full Moon and only his second convention, so you can imagine that he earned a spot on my list to add to my Boondock Saints collection. Brian has also recently starred in Furious Seven and other past films include American Reunion., Jarhead, and The Pitcher. Brian was extremely happy to be there and chatted about his role in the new Boondock Saints movie, with Sean Patrick and Troy promising a lot of great scenes for Detective Duffy.
In conclusion, I would have to say that Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Festival was a success. Wookie and I had an amazing time hanging out with the celebrities and vendors. We were able to score several great movies from our friend, DVD Bob of Cult Fiction Underground and also stopped by the Evil Pumpkins table to see Jeano and Tanya. Later that night, we headed out to The East Room in Nashville to attend the Cult Fiction Underground Fundraiser and help DVD Bob raise money to open Cult Fiction Underground’s new location. It was an amazing night of comedy, music and burlesque. If you were unable to attend, you can still donate here to help open the doors.
