Sit in on a great discussion at FANTASM with stuntman, actor, and independant filmaker Douglas Tait!

5:00 pm THE THING WITH TWO HEADS PANEL!
Host:  FANTASM TYPE: Q&A Guest Panel
1 hr

Admit it. You're curious about what these two industry icons have to say about their love of horror!

Sean Clark and Christopher Nelson unload their brains and run off their mouths about everything: classic and current genre movies and television, their careers and daily doings, and stuff that REALLY grinds their gears with their popular segment "GET OFF MY LAWN!"

You'll most likely hear about what they love, like, and dislike (or simply just feel meh about) as the THING WITH TWO HEADS panel happens at FANTASM ORLANDO! It's bound to be a crazy time when these two get on stage!

**DISCLAIMER: This is a PG-13 panel, so adult comments and language that may not be suited for those under 13 can occur.**

9:00 pm Theoretical Rejects Present: Literary Horror Burlesque (18+)
Host:  FANTASM TYPE: Performance Show
1 hr

We're the kind of nerds who didn't read the Sparknotes - we WROTE the Sparknotes. We're the kind of nerds who were told they talk too much about prose and poetry in English class. 

Wanna explore your favorite literary horror characters in a new light? Join Theoretical Rejects as we strip down literary horror to its BARE essentials. Let's get, flirty, dirty, and literary! 

After the flop of her once-but-no-longer favorite author, literary superfan Annie Wilkes is on the hunt for a new favorite to dedicate her attentions...Will she choose one of the classic gothic stories of Stoker or Shelley? Or will she prefer the more contemporary works of Gaiman or King? Turn the page to find out, but don't spoil the ending...it will only end in Misery...

Tips accepted and greatly appreciated!

Theoretical Rejects is a performance troupe in Orlando, FL centered around the concept of diversity and inclusivity on stage! We believe that all voices have a right to be represented on stage.
