Jed Rowen at HorrorFest

Jed Rowen
Actor

This is Jed’s fifth appearance as a guest at Horrorfest, and he returns with his biggest and best film, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X. He plays the villainous character, Sluggo, in this 35 mm sci-fi black-and-white musical extravaganza. Jed also sang in several of the songs in the movie and contributed his slide guitar work on the song, Here We Go.

The Ghastly Love of Johnny Xhad an amazing world premiere at Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose this past March, and also had big write-ups in Sci Fi magazine and the American Cinematographer. Jed’s other sci-fi film, Piranhaconda, will have its world premiere on the SyFy channel later this year.

In recognition of his wide array of movie roles over the years, Jed was recently awarded the Golden Halo Film Achievement Award by the historic Southern California Motion Picture Council. His film career was also the subject of a featured article in The Atlantic magazine entitled, Inbred Jed: The Strenuous Life of a B-Movie Zombie, recounting his many zombie roles and experiences as a cult film actor.

Jed is very excited to be back in Denver for Horrorfest, at the Starfest Convention, to reunite with all of his friends and fans who have been so supportive of his career over the years. Please look for him at the special midnight screening of the film Saturday night, and at another screening of the movie on Sunday. Jed will also be at panels and events throughout the convention.

Jed Rowen at HorrorFest

Jed RowenPerhaps Hollywood’s #1 Zombie?

Jed Rowen is very excited to be attending his fourth Horrorfest. Recent Horrorfests have screened Jed’s two other fan-favorite films, Zombie Farm and Attitude for Destruction. This year, Jed will be starring in the 2010 Horrorfest world premiere screening of Dahmer vs. Gacy!! Jed is so proud to be a part of this ultra-absurdist, brilliant film, and takes his hat off to all of the cast and crew in making this perhaps his best movie to date.

In recognition of his nearly 80 film credits, Jed was recently awarded the Golden Halo Film Achievement Award by the Southern California Motion Picture Council this last December in Los Angeles.  Jed was also the subject of an article in the Sept. 2009 edition of The Atlantic entitled: Inbred Jed: The Strenuous Life of a B-Movie Zombie, recounting his many zombie roles and experiences as a cult film actor.

Other recent highlights include the premiere of 300 LBS. (a spoof of the blockbuster 300), in which Jed played the role of Xerxes to a packed house at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con.  Jed can also be seen in the drama D.C. Sniper, released worldwide this past March.

Please look for Jed at the screening of Dahmer vs. Gacy on Friday night, the 16th. Jed’s band, Rogue Agent, composed the theme song to the film, which plays during the end credit crawl. He would love to hear what you think of both the movie and the theme song during the Q&A panel after the screening.
