OZ COMIC-CON season kicks off in Perth and Adelaide in just a few months, and the organisers have pulled out the big guns (or should we say blades): horror legends Robert Englund and Ken Kirzinger, better known as Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees from the Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th films.
It’s been over 30 years since Englund first strapped on the famous bladed gloves and distinctive stripey shirt and hat combo, and in that time he’s starred in all of the classic Elm Street films, along with hundred of hours of television, including recent stints in Bones, Criminal Minds and Hawaii 5-0.
Kirzinger first put on the famous hockey mask as Jason in the 2003 crossover film, Freddy vs. Jason. He’s also worked as a stuntman outside of his featured roles, including superhero films X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men 2 and The Incredible Hulk.
Punters at OZ COMIC-CON Perth and Adelaide will have the chance to take part in professional autograph and photograph opportunities with Englund and Kirzinger, as well as attend exclusive Q&A panels, in which the pair will answer audience questions. Also available are the Freddy vs. Jason Experience tickets, which include a double photo with the pair, autographs from both Englund and Kirzinger, access to an exclusive panel and an intimate evening function on the Saturday night of the convention with the duo. Tickets are now available from http://www.showclix.com/events/18185.
Other guests include Amber Benson (Buffy), Kevin Sorbo and Michael Hurst (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), Michael Shanks, Ben Browder and Cliff Simon (Stargate: SG-1), Agam Darshi (Sanctuary) and Dominic Keating (Star Trek: Enterprise).
Oz Comic-Con will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on April 11-12 and at the Adelaide Showgrounds on April 18-19. For more details visit ozcomiccon.com
