"Ship of Fear is a culmination of everything I love about the horror genre; the movies, the monsters, the special effects and especially the fans," says film writer/director and cruise host Tom Holland. "What we have in store will be unlike any other convention experience out there - we're planning an immersive experience for devotees that includes panels and screenings of many beloved genre classics, horror-themed parties and costume contests as well as daily signings and other special events including bringing five of the Masters of Horror together in front of their fans for a rare group appearance."

THE SHIP OF FEAR will pay homage to the horror genre in all forms; from daily panels and classic horror film reunions (featuring appearances by many of the genre's biggest names in front of and behind the camera) to costume contests, live talent demonstrations and more.   The non-stop fun features  appearances by stars Zach Galligan ("Gremlins, Hatchet 3"), Reggie Bannister ("Phantasm" series), R.A. "Leatherface" Mihailoff, Ed "Chucky" Gale, Kane "Jason" Hodder, Tony "Candyman" Todd, Belinda Balaski ("The Howling") and directors Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child's Play), Don Coscarelli ("Phantasm," "The Beastmaster," "Bubba Ho-Tep"), Mick Garris (television's "Masters of Horror," "The Stand," "Freddy's Nightmares"), Joe Dante (The Howling, Piranha, Gremlins), and Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary) as well as live musical performances by Alice CooperDee Snider and Corey Feldman and Truth Movement. On the Ship of Fear, the terror never ends! 

Cruisers aboard the Ship of Fear will also be able to go behind the scenes with some of Hollywood's best special effects and make-up artists and  join performance artists such as the irreverent steam-punk, zombie hunting team, League of S.T.E.A.M. Horror fans will be captivated by illusionists, nightly movie screenings with Q&A's, an amateur horror film festival, party it up during "Screech on the Beach" (held on Carnival's own private island), a Zombie Prom on Halloween night and meet with many more surprises.
