One of my favorite times of the year is when horror conventions come around, and this year there’s a doozy coming to Los Angeles! Yes – the Days Of The Dead horror convention will be making it’s return, this time on April 1-3 at the Marriott Hotel in Burbank.
If you’ve ever wanted a photo-op with Tobin Bell from the Saw series, now’s your chance! And if you’ve ever wanted to meet ‘The Gimp’ from Pulp Fiction, now’s your chance for that too! Personally, I’m actually kind of excited to see the Cobra Kai student/teacher combo of Martin Kove & William Zabka from The Karate Kid. Not really horror-related, but awesome nonetheless. Check out the link right HERE for more info and tickets for Days Of The Dead ‘Los Angeles’, and stay tuned for more guest announcements as well. Oh – follow me on my Facebook page for a chance to win passes too!
Oh – and Happy Martin Luther King Day too……
Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Thanks to Rick James for those monumental words of wisdom. But anyway, a great horror short made it’s way onto my radar called Welcome To Willits: After Sundown done by The Ryan Brothers. Cocaine is prominent throughout as our main character Brock impatiently waits for his friend to get to a remote cabin in the woods for a planned drug deal. Brock snorts a little of the nose candy, implores his friend to get there before sundown, and proceeds to have paranoia set in. And after that happens, things get a little messy. Oh – and an alien pops up too. Check it out below:
I was really impressed by this short and honestly can’t wait to see what The Ryan Brothers put out next. Hopefully a full length project is in the works, as they’ve easily shown here that they have an eye for horror behind the lens and in front.
