So you’ve got all these Halloween costumes based off iconic horror characters (Jason, Freddy, Candyman, etc.) and you consider yourself the biggest fan of Halloween/horror, right? Well, what if I told you that next year, in 2013, you could spend Halloween night with the actors of your favorite horror icons?
Oh sorry – I forgot the best part: you’d be spending this time on a cruise ship sailing from Miami, FL, on October 28 to Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Freeport, before returning back to Miami on November 2.
That’s right – Alice Cooper is welcoming you to join him and a bunch horror icons on the Ship of Fear, the largest “house of horror on the high seas.” For 5 days and 5 nights, you can enjoy the luxurious amenities of a Carnival Victory cruise while enjoying the company of your favorite horror icons.
Want to soak in the sun while asking Kane Hodder what it was like to play Jason? Have a question for Mary Lambert about what it was like to bring King’s Pet Cemetary to life? On this cruise, you’ll have more than enough opportunities to do just that.
Plus, the cruise features various activities, such as live music from Cooper and Snider, in-depth Q&A panels with cast members and filmmakers, a zombie prom, and a classic horror reunion that features many of the genre’s “biggest names in front of and behind the camera.”
List of expected cruise horror guests:
- Alice Cooper
- Dee Snider
- Joe Dante (Director of Gremlins)
- Don Coscarelli (Director of Phantasm series)
- Mick Garris (Director of The Stand)
- Mary Lambert (Director of Pet Cemetary)
- Belinda Balaski (The Howling)
- Reggie Bannister (Phantasm)
- Zach Galligan
- Ed Gale (Chucky)
- Kane Hodder (Actor behind Jason)
- R.A. Mihailoff (Actor behind Leatherface)
- Tony Todd (Actor behind Candyman)
- And more!
Lastly, the Ship of Fear will celebrate Halloween with Screech On The Beach, an event that takes place at Half Moon Cay, Carnival’s own private island, where you can party long into the evening with all the aforementioned horror icons.
Seriously, if you are in any way a horror fan, this is the way to celebrate your love for the genre. Plus, you can enter to win a free cabin – right now! So what are you waiting for? Stop reading this blog and go kick your name into the mix. I already put mine in.
