Spooky ‘ScareLA Convention’ Turns The Lights Off This Year! (August 25 + 26th)

‘Tis the season for horror and Halloween-themed conventions!  And one of my favorites to frequent out here in the Los Angeles area is the ScareLA convention in downtown LA. Going into it’s sixth year now, ScareLA combines everything horror + a full Halloween-time experience.  But this year……it’s going to get darker.  Literally.

It’s just been announced that ScareLA will immediately set all attendees into near darkness throughout the entire convention, giving those who are lucky enough to go a fully immersive Halloween-style experience!  Being called ‘Descend Into Darkness‘, the convention will be a first of it’s kind, not only being darkly lit throughout – but also featuring a ‘theme park feel’ as well…..including full-sized haunts, experiences, and rides. Spooooooooky and amazing!!

Now, if you can’t get to the LA area on the weekend of August 25th + 26th – then follow my Instagram story to stay connected to all of the ghostly goings-ons that will be happening (shameless plug).  If you do want to attend ScareLA in person though, then head on over to their site HERE and snatch up those tickets and get more info.  Word to the wise, this event gets PACKED – so get there early if you are going!  Happy Summerween, everybody!!!

‘Days Of The Dead’ Horror Convention Coming To Los Angeles April 1-3!

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!
