DUE TO RECORDING SCHEDULES KRISTI HAD TO POSTPONE HER VISIT TO 2023
Classically trained and star of stage and screen, child-actor, writer, and cosplayer, Jonni Shandor has been involved with theater and film since she was six years old.
When she's not reviewing horror movies and books on her YouTube channel - Monkey Vader - she spends her time actually acting in movies, creating challenging cosplays with her movie prop designer and builder father, and performing 80’s metal songs on stage as well as hosting horror events and writing her own films. Jonni won 2020’s Midwest Scream Queen and just recently filmed as the lead to a new SAG family Christmas film, The Rose Wagon.
Jonni's passion for acting and performing has brought her a whole new love for the film industry. During quarantine, while all her film opportunities were postponed, she took advantage of the time off and at just eight years old. Jonni ended up writing and directing her own films, 'There's an Alien in My Backyard', and 'Should We Be Doing This?'. Jonni Shandor also found herself as the star of a one-person variety show, 'Scary Haggis', a children’s horror comedy where she was able to become familiar with being in front of, and behind the camera.
You can find Jonni on several feature films including the Christmas horror film, “He Knows”, the horror-comedy, “The Embalmers”, and she will begin filming “Live, Laugh, Die” this spring.
