We’re getting closer to May-Hem, the final Spooky Empire event at the Wyndham! This show will be a bittersweet one. While we’re sad to leave what’s become our home away from home, we’re very excited for what’s to come.
Some new guests have been added for May-Hem, most of which have never appeared at a Spooky Empire event! To top off our list of celebrity appearances is The Addams Family reunion featuring John Astin “Gomez Addams”, Lisa Loring “Wednesday Addams” and Felix Silla and “Cousin Itt”. Don’t miss out on a rare appearance by well-known actor Danny Aiello. You will remember him best for his roles in films like Moonstruck, The Godfather II, Do The Right Thing, The Professional and more.
Roddy Piper will be making a return appearance not only to meet and greet and sign autographs, but to perform his live “one man show” which is a mixture of life stories and experiences and a little comedy. This performance will require a separate ticket in addition to your admission. Tickets are $10 and will be available in advance online. The $10 admission is already included in the VIP package for all of you VIP passholders!

Other appearances at May-Hem include Linda Hamilton, best known for her role as “Sarah Connor” in The Terminator. She’s also starred in the TV series “Beauty and The Beast” and most recently “Chuck”.

From the hit new TV series “The Walking Dead”, films Mallrats and Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer, Michael Rooker will be appearing. Stars of the TV series Charmed, Holly Marie Combs and Brian Krause. Brian is also known for his role in Sleepwalkers. Also making a rare convention appearance is Joey Lauren Adams, most recognizable for her distinctive voice. She’s best known for her roles in films Chasing Amy, Big Daddy, Dazed & Confused and many more. To round off the guest list is Kristanna Loken of Terminator 3, Monica Keena of Freddy vs Jason, Oliver Robins from Poltergeist and Madison Lintz of “The Walking Dead”

This is definitely not the final guest list, as always we will be adding more!
