Special make-up effects guru, stuntman, actor, and director to appear at Fan Expo Vancouver (April 20–21, 2013, Vancouver, BC, Canada).
Tom “The Godfather of Gore” Savini, the legendary special make-up effects expert best known for his work on such films as the original Friday the 13th, Dawn of the Dead, and Creepshow, has been confirmed as a guest in this year’s Fan Expo Vancouver (April 20–21, 2013, Vancouver, BC, Canada).
In more recent years, Savini has found a fan following outside of the horror film buff and special effects community with his acting work in films such as Django Unchained, Machete, Grindhouse (Planet Terror segment), the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, and From Dusk ’till Dawn.
