I’ve made no secret of my love for Shock Stock here on The Deadhouse. Since the show’s inception in 2011, I have attended the event every year, and I now consider it a regular part of my life and yearly schedule. It’s the one place where all of us horror-loving freaks get to go and hang out, and truly feel at home. The show has grown every year and this year is once again presenting a stellar line-up of horror and exploitation figures. Especially exciting is the inclusion of horrorpunk godfather Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, formerly of The Misfits. Just like last year, I had the opportunity to speak with Jake W. Grimbro, one of the co-founders of the event, and someone I am happy and proud to call a friend. So without further a due, let’s get to the interview shall we?
For those who have known me for some time, many will know of my love of a little horror con in my hometown that started in 2011 called Shock Stock. Put together by two of the greatest scumbags (it’s a term of endearment) on the face of the Earth, Shock Stock had a bit of a rocky start with low attendance the first year. Not to be deterred, the two figureheads of the event, and two guys I am proud to call friends, Jake Grimbro and James Bialkowski, soldiered on and now Shock Stock is considered one of the greatest horror cons in all of Canada, and certainly the greasiest! I am privileged to be able to release some information about the forthcoming 2016 edition, as well as details on how you can submit your films for consideration for the Shock Stock Film Festival!
