CELEBRITY GUESTS IN ATTENDANCE
Lynn Lowry is an American actress, screenwriter and producer. She is perhaps best known for her work in horror films.
Her first movie role was a small part in The Battle of Love’s Return (1971) which starred and was directed by Lloyd Kaufman, who later founded the “Troma” independent film company. Her next role was another small, uncredited part in I Drink Your Blood (1971). Her next movie, playing a dual role in Sugar Cookies (1973), which required her to act in the nude for the first time, got her sex appeal. Score (1973) came next which was a X-rated, soft-core, semi-documentary flick which brought on more sex appeal for Lowry’s character. Her next role was one of her best in playing “Kathy,” a neurotic character in George A. Romero’s The Crazies (1973), an action-horror flick filmed in rural Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh. She then was cast for a recurring part in the TV series How to Survive a Marriage (1974). She was also cast for a part in David Cronenberg’s horror flick Shivers (1975).
Sam Irvin is an American film and television director, producer, screenwriter, actor, author and film teacher.
Irvin’s directing credits include Guilty as Charged, Oblivion, Elvira’s Haunted Hills, and all the episodes of two television series: Dante’s Cove and From Here on OUT. His other credits include co-executive producer of Bill Condon’s Academy Award-winner Gods and Monsters; associate producer of Brian De Palma’s Home Movies; and historical consultant on the Tony Award-winner Liza’s at the Palace. Irvin authored the acclaimed biography Kay Thompson: From Funny Face to Eloise (Simon & Schuster), the children’s book parody Sam’s Toilet Paper Caper! (Knuckle Samwitch Books), and the novel ORBGASM: An Erotic Pulp Sci-Fi Satyricon (Knuckle Samwitch Books). Irvin has won two Rondo Awards for Best Article of the Year (“The Epic Saga Behind Frankenstein: The True Story” published in Little Shoppe of Horrors magazine #38) and Best Interview of the Year (“Elvira Exposed!” published in Screem magazine #36).
