11am - 4pm

Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills called in to the ROCK 929. studio to talk music, horror, and this weekend’s Silver Scream Con.


Let’s get the business out of the way first. Silver Scream Con takes place Friday, August 26 through Sunday, August 28 at the Doubletree Boston North Shore, 50 Ferncroft Rd. in Danvers. According to the website, Silver Screen Con is “a brand-new weekend of macabre celebration for genre fiends set in the Ice Nine Kills’ home state of Massachusetts.” What’s more, “The Silver Scream Con will bring horror fanatics and INK fans from all over the world together to celebrate their love of on-screen slaughter”, Spencer promises. “This is the chance for our loyal psychos to not only interact with the band, but to meet the stars of the very films that our music pays tribute to.”


So who’s on hand? Here’s a partial list. Skeet Ulrich of Scream, The Craft, and Riverdale. Kane Hodder, who is best known for his portrayals of Jason in the Friday the 13th franchise. Doug Bradley, who plays Pinhead in the Hellraiser films. Nick Castle, the original Michael Myers from the original Halloween. The list goes on and on and you can get a look at the full lineup here.

Spencer had just returned to the North Shore from some Ice Nine Kills tour dates, so we chatted about that to start with. Then we got into the skinny on Silver Scream Con. I’m a bit of a horror fan too, so we talked about our early horror movie memories and our favorite Friday the 13th films (spoiler alert: my favorite is Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The camper van scene rules). Listen to the full interview below, end get your tickets to Silver Scream Con here.
