Adam Green Supports Freddy In Space!

So I think i've already established that Kristy Jett is one of the most amazing and kind human beings on this planet, a fact that she has further proven to me today. Kristy spent her weekend at the Rock and Shock Convention in Massachusetts, which featured Adam Green on the guest list. Knowing how much of a fan and supporter I am of Green, she not only scored me an autographed Hatchet 2 poster - I believe he wrote, "To John, Victor Crowley meets Freddy ... In Space. Get it?" - but she also managed to get Adam to do a little shoutout to me and the blog, which she captured on video. This is probably the greatest gift i've ever received and as I told Kristy, I hope this smile never leaves my hairy little face.



Thank you so much Kristy and Adam, this means more to me than either of you could ever know. For someone who you admire, respect and draw inspiration from to acknowledge you and what you do is a pretty damn awesome feeling. And for anyone who wonders why I am such a hardcore supporter of Green, it's not even just because I love everything he does - which I do. It's mostly because he's such a genuinely awesome dude who is constantly going out of his way to show his appreciation for his fans, always answering messages on Facebook and doing cool shit like this. You rock Adam.

As for you Kristy, I think my parents will agree that you've just officially earned yourself an adoption. Welcome to the family!

1. Having met The Kristy at R&S this weekend, I can concur that she is boss.

2. Adam Green genuinely does come off as a good guy who loves movies and his fans. He was at R&S all weekend and was simply awesome, talking to everyone, taking pictures at no charge, and being, if I didn't say it, awesome. Great to see a genre director 'get it.'

Apparently Green didn't charge anyone for his autograph or a picture with him at the convention ... if you needed any more proof that he's the coolest guy ever.

That's amazing! Kristy is too cool...and Adam Green is pretty awesome too.

Jealous, I am, but you definitely deserve a shout out for all the support you've given Green (and the rest of the genre's filmmakers for that matter).
