‘H40: Halloween 40 Years Of Terror’ Convention Coming To Pasadena This Weekend!

It’s almost time, kids!  Yes, Halloween is almost upon us.  Not just the new movie, but also our favorite time of the year that lands on October 31st.  And what better way to get ready for both than with a massive convention celebrating all of the Halloween movies from the famed franchise – including that upcoming new one!


The H40: Halloween 40 Years Of Terror convention begins this weekend (October 12-14) in Pasadena, California – which btw is the home of the actual Michael Myers house from the original 1978 film (stop by and check it out while you’re in town for the convention).  The guest list for H40 is impressive.  Below are just a few of the highlights for me:

Nick Castle (the original Michael Myers), PJ Soles (Halloween), Tom Atkins (Halloween III), Tyler Mane (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), David Gordon Green (writer/director Halloween 2018), Rhian Rees (Halloween 2018), and more!

On top of all of your favorite past and present Halloween franchise representers, there will be a ton of panels throughout the weekend highlighting a lot of the films.  Also, the vendors will be out in full frightful force selling all of the best merchandise.  Specifically – make sure to stop by the booths of Mondo, Jason Edmiston, Ghoulish Gary Pullin for some super limited Halloween themed posters and vinyl.

Horror Hijinks: PJ Soles Calls A Cigarette A Beer! (Halloween – 1978)

It’s no secret that John Carpenter’s 1978 groundbreaking horror masterpiece Halloween is in my top 10, if not at the top, for my favorite horror movie of all time.  I had to change my pants on a few occasions as a child after getting a glimpse of Michael Myers in that William Shatner mask, and to this day it still freaks me out (not the ones that were in the many sequels to follow though….so terrible).  Now in addition to the unsettling atmosphere and soundtrack, there were some unintentional or maybe intentional comic relief moments to ease a little of that terror filled tension.

Whether it was Annie smacking her lips and chewing on the phone with Laurie, annoying Tommy falling and smashing his pumpkin, the masculine voice that came out of Annie’s mouth when she’s in the garage and says “Owww!”, or the fact that little Lindsey grew up to be a Real Housewife Of Beverly Hills – there were more than enough zingers that came out of this horror classic.    Continue reading
