Famous Monsters, the iconic monster brand established in 1958, marked its 65th anniversary this past weekend with a three-day event which included appearances from such luminaries as Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly Osbourne, Scott Ian and Frank Bello of ANTHRAX, horror legend Tom Savini and Famous Monsters co-founder James Warren. The event was hosted at Valley Forge Casino Resort, located in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, from October 13 to October 15.

According to the festival web site, Ozzy was there on Friday (October 13) and Sunday (October 15) only, while Sharon, Jack and Kelly appeared on all three days. In order to meet Ozzy, one had to purchase the "Ultimate Sin" package being offered.

Originally planned for Las Vegas, Famous Monsters Festival chose Philadelphia for this historic event because it is the home of Warren. Warren, alongside editor Forrest J. Ackerman, united "Monster Kids" worldwide through Famous Monsters magazine.

Famous Monsters Festival offered exclusive photo ops, question-and-answer sessions, panel discussions, classes and performances spanning the weekend.

Famous Monsters is the only original sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and pop culture fan magazine remaining in circulation today. Famous Monsters influenced an entire generation of monster kids who grew up to become some of Hollywood's most recognized names: Steven Spielberg, Guillermo Del Toro, Peter Jackson, Rick Baker. Today, the magazine enjoys worldwide distribution, and the company has grown to include comic books, designer apparel, an online store, a prominent place at San Diego Comic-Con, a division for special events, an exclusive chocolate line, licensed guitars, and countless other goodies.
