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!
Hooray for horror conventions coming back to LA! Yes, after Fangoria’s Weekend Of Horrors ceased to exist, there was a void in LA for a good horror convention (no disrespect to Monsterpalooza though, but that takes place in Burbank). Enter in the Days Of The Dead and that void has seemingly now been filled. Taking place this past weekend, I was fortunate enough to go Friday night for the opening festivities. Now I have to give a quick disclaimer before I continue: due to me having to work the rest of the weekend to help pay the bills, I was unfortunately unable to attend on Saturday or Sunday. Nevertheless, I’m reviewing anyway because I still had a blast! Continue reading
Great news for you horror fans in Los Angeles: the Days Of The Dead horror convention is coming April 5th-7th! Started in 2011, this convention will be making it’s LA debut and they’re pulling out all the stops. Do you want to see a House Of A 1000 Corpses 10 year reunion? You can! Do you want to meet the women of the original Evil Dead on the weekend that the new Evil Dead hits theaters? You can! Do you want to tell Traci Lords about how you fantasized about her as a teenager? You can do that too! But that’s all mere child’s play compared to the reunion that I’m excited to see and I’m sure a lot of other attendees are as well: Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David will be there for a They Live reunion!
If you didn’t blow your load over that announcement, then I’ll give you the fast-talking Micro Machines guy rundown of some of the other guests who will be attending throughout the weekend: William Forsythe (The Devil’s Rejects), Tom Sizemore (The Relic), a People Under The Stairs reunion, Amelia Kinkade (Night Of The Demons), Oliver Robins (Poltergeist), Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Heather Langenkamp and other Nightmare On Elm Street girls, and more, more, more!
Now if you don’t live in LA, then I’m sorry for rubbing it in. But if you live in Indianapolis, Chicago, or Atlanta, then I have good news for you, because the convention will be coming your way over the next few months! Head over to the website HERE and check out the info and head HERE to purchase tickets for the LA dates. Stay tuned for a review on my experience at the convention and whether or not I profess my love to Traci Lords or one of the Evil Dead girls.
