Monster-Mania XXX ran from March 13-15 in Cherry Hill, NJ.
On the guest list was the highly-demanded Daveigh Chase, best known as ‘Samara’ in The Ring franchise over at DreamWorks Pictures.
The show’s promoter contacted me about taking to his blog to explain to angry fans why Chase never showed. If true, it sucks pretty hard.
The promoter alleges that they came to an agreement with Chase’s reps at June Entertainment, only to be robbed of their money, and face.
Explains the blog post, they were told that Chase “missed her flight” and that the rep was traveling and missed the calls and e-mails. The promoter even tried to get Chase on a new flight, to no avail.
The worst, according to there post, is that they still haven’t been refunded the hefty advance, and have lost all contact with June Entertainment and their rep.
Running a convention isn’t easy, and wrangling all the stars (and their egos) is a nightmare. Who knows what happened in this situation, but one things is for sure, Monster Mania deserves their deposit back (and an apology).
