HorrorHound Weekend is three days of terror from HorrorHound Magazine. This Indianapolis based convention features celebrity guests, vendors, film screenings, celebrity Q&As, costume contests, and a host of other activities. Sounds like fun, right? If you’re planning to go, you don’t have much time left to buy a ticket. Also, you should also know the event has MOVED. It now takes place at the JW Marriott on 10 S. West St. The event is just a week away, and you won’t believe the guest list they’ve put together.
Read on for all the details!
What Is HorrorHound Weekend?
HorrorHound Weekend is a series of midwest horror conventions located in such cities as Cincinnati, Ohio, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Columbus, Ohio. Fans are able to meet some of the biggest celebrities in film and television, as well as icons from cinema’s past. Celebrities attend, meeting with fans, signing autographs, participating in photo-ops (prices apply in many aspects of these appearances), and often appear on-stage for Q&A panels.
Along with celebrity signings, fans can shop for the newest (or rarest) horror toys, t-shirts, posters, VHS/DVD/Blu-rays, masks, and other assorted goodies from our 100-plus amazing vendors – many times including actual film studios, filmmakers, toy companies and DVD distributors. Movie premieres and screenings are included with every show via the HorrorHound Film Festival. Each event includes a costume contest, as well as other special events (such as concerts and stage performances).
Sounds like a blast! I think we’re going to be sending a couple of PopHorror peeps out there for the event. Stay tuned for more info about that!
