Rock and Shock Announces More Guests

Rock and Shock have announced a couple more guests for their upcoming convention. The newly announced guests are:

  • Mercedes McNab
  • Dustin Warburton
  • Eileen Dietz
  • Laura Ortiz
  • Jonathan Breck

Rock and Shock is a three day convention that features nightly concerts. It takes places at the Worcester Palladium and DCU Center on October 13th, 14th, and 15th.

Press Releases:

  • FIRST TIME GUEST! Mercedes McNab began acting at the age of ten, and from her very first role in the film adaptation of The Addams Family she began to carve her niche in the horror community. Momentum was gained with a part in the sequel, Addams Family Values, but one of her crowning achievements came with a four season stint as Harmony Kendall in the groundbreaking series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When that show ended she brought Harmony to the spinoff, Angel, and was popular enough with the fans to become a series regular for the final season. While that door may have closed, another opened soon after when a certain filmmaker you may have heard of named Adam Green brought her in to face Victor Crowley in his very first Hatchet film. Mercedes will be with us all weekend to meet you, and we hope you’ll stop by and welcome her to Worcester!
  • FIRST TIME GUEST! Bitten by the writing bug at an early age, Dustin Warburton found himself a published author before he was old enough to vote. Building from that success, he was soon an accomplished wordsmith of horror, crafting genre stories for children, teens and adults in the mediums of books (Taste, Morticians Food and Lilly’s Cove for adults and My Brother Eats Spiders and The Little Monsters Guide on How to Scare Children for the youngsters), graphic novels and screenplays (Spiders 3D, Black Asylum). He has also collaborated with sports legends like Jesse James Leija (Jesse and the Boogyman) and Dennis Rodman (Dennis the Wild Bull). He’s got something for everyone, so if you or your little ones are looking for a new book Dustin’s table would be a good place to start.
  • GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT! With the rise of larger cinemas and blockbuster films playing on multiple screens in every format, the buzz around movies changed. Gone are the sold out shows and people standing in line for hours because the whole country was driven into a frenzy by news reports and word of mouth. In the 1970s, though, that was a measure of a film’s success and longevity, and no horror film became more notorious than The Exorcist. Our next guest, Eileen Dietz, was there for it all. Not only did she play the demon, Pazuzu, but she was also responsible for some of the more physical and adult scenes (crucifix, anyone?) needed for the character of Regan. She is responsible for the nightmares of thousands, and she’d like to meet you this October.
  • GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT! Laura Ortiz is making her return to Rock and Shock! Laura, of course, has starred in several Adam Green projects, beginning in 2010 with Hatchet II and continuing into Chillerama, Holliston, the series Scary Sleepover and Horrified, and she also has a role in his newest entry in the Hatchet series, Victor Crowley. Aside from those popular performances, Laura also gained her horror cred with the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes (her first horror project) as well as The Real Housewives of Horror, and in 2014 she hit the big screen for Marvel in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Laura has been quite busy since we last saw her in Worcester, and we’re hoping you’ll be here to congratulate her on her success!
  • GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT! Jonathan Breck has achieved a very rare feat in the world of horror movie monsters. Having played The Creeper in every Jeepers Creepers film, Jonathan joined a very small club of actors to have been the only person to portray a particular villain through the original film and all its sequels. Fans of the character, of course, wouldn’t have it any other way, as he brought a mesmerizing form of menace that breathed life into the franchise and has kept it popular since the first film debuted in 2001. Mr. Breck hasn’t been to our show since 2005, and as he doesn’t do very many conventions we are excited that he is spending his October 13-15 with you all.
