The Hammer in action. ~From Dusk ’til Dawn

ShockaCon fans are probably familiar with a little mid-90’s flick known as From Dusk ‘til Dawn, one of my all-time favorite films.  Or, maybe more recently you’ve seen Zombie Apocalypse: Redemption.  Maybe you’re a Starsky and Hutch fan (either film or series).  If you’ve seen any of these, plus or minus another 100+ films or TV shows produced since the 70’s, you’ve seen “The Hammer” – aka Fred Williamson – in action.  We’re excited to get to meet the man behind the muscle at ShockaCon 2014!

Charleston filmmaker Eamon Hardiman, head of Razor Sharp Studios, will present his latest work, The Crawling Dead, at ShockaCon 2013, and I highly recommend not missing it.  “ShockaCon is awesome, it’s the first horror convention that’s been, as far as I know, in all of West Virginia.”  Hardiman travels often to horror conventions in surrounding states, so he’s pretty thrilled about the upcoming horror extravaganza on the East End, where he lives and The Crawling Dead was filmed.  Razor Sharp Studios screened Porkchop 3D at ShockaCon 2012, where they met fans, journalists and other artists.  “We had a great time, we met some people that have been super supportive of everything we’ve bee doing.  We left that sold out of everything, or almost everything, which has only happened one time before.  It was a lot of fun, it seemed like a huge community thing, people brought their kids.  Which is always weird,” Hardiman said.  Continue reading

ShockaCon 2013 has a slew of talented guests lined up, but none so dear to the Mountain State as native son Robert ‘RJ’ Haddy, fan favorite of SyFy’s Face Off Season 2 and, more importantly, a born and bred Charlestonian.  Haddy was a consistently high scorer on Season 2, and though he didn’t  win the competitive reality show, his hard work has paid off in a career rich with opportunity.  No slouch before his star turn, Haddy attended several institutes of higher learning, including West Virginia State College, the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and the Joe Blasco Make-up Center, where he had the opportunity to work on films like Contact and Batman & Robin.  But now he has his own signature airbrush, the Shadow, professional relationships with Paasche Airbrushes, European Body Art,  and Bad Ass Stencils, a booking agent to juggle his far flung engagements and a heap of frequent flyer miles.

His tenure on Face Off also garnered him an invitation to return to Face Off’s fifth season as a veteran contestant. Continue reading
