Come Join Hollywood Creatures & Collectibles and Benevolent Monster Productions for the Northern CA premier of Beast Wishes: The Fantastic World Of Bob And Kathy Burns. Produced and directed by filmmakers Trish Geiger and Frank Dietz, this feature-length documentary chronicles the story of how Bob and Kathy became the goodwill ambassadors of sci-fi and horror film fandom. Married for over five decades, this amazing couple have spent their lives nurturing the creative spark in talented people, many of whom went on to become award-winning masters in the Hollywood makeup and special effect industries.

The film takes a heartfelt look at all the fascinating aspects of Bob and Kathy’s lives. From their work with 1950′s monster creator Paul Blaisdell, to Bob’s career as a gorilla suit performer, their legendary Burbank Halloween shows and their stunning collection of rare props from the most famous genre films of all time. But the heart of the film is the two real treasures of their museum – Bob and Kathy themselves – and an incredible array of guest stars share their thoughts and affection for the couple.

Oscar-winning makeup and F/X artists Rick Baker (Gorillas in the Mist, Ed Wood), Chris Walas (The Fly),Tom Woodruff, Jr. and Alec Gillis (Alien vs. Predator) and Dennis Muren (The Empire Strikes Back, Jurassic Park), Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and Steve Wang (Predator), directors John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), William Malone (The House on Haunted Hill) and Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling), author David J. Schow (The Crow) and comedian Dana Gould (The Simpsons) are just a few of the special guests that relate their own memories and appreciation for all that Bob and Kathy have done for the world of movie magic.

Screening is followed by a Q&A with Filmmakers Trish Geiger and Frank Dietz, Bob and Kathy Burns as well as special FX Veteran Pat McClung (The Empire Strikes Back, Aliens, X-Men: Last Stand)
