Horror and comic book fans alike are getting really excited this time of year. Why? Convention season! A group of friends and myself love to frequent horror/comic conventions. As I said in a previous post, I attended HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati back in March of this year. It was a total madhouse, but I loved it.
There are a lot of really great conventions coming up this year, and Kentucky appears to be a big hub for conventions this year. The weekend of July 26-28 is Fright Night Horror Weekend in Louisville. Fright Night is going to be a horror convention with some very familiar faces from the comic book world. This includes the legend Stan Lee, Kevin Smith, and Jason Mewes.
As far as the horror community, there is going to be a Walking Dead reunion with Norman Reedus, Michael Rooker, Chandler Riggs, Lew Temple, and Vincent Ward. They are looking to add more cast members from The Walking Dead. Horror icon and master slasher Kane Hodder will be there too. Other horror guests include the 2003 and 2006 Leatherface Andrew Bryniarski, Texas Chainsaw 3D’s Sam Mckenzie, the gorgeous Kate Norby and more to be announced.
Fright Night Horror Weekend will also be host to cast members of Firefly, Dr. Who, and FACEOFF. Grant Wilson, formerly of Ghost Hunters, will be on hand as well as other familiar faces from TV.
If you are bored the weekend of July 26-28 or just want to take a fun road trip, head to Louisville for Fright Night Horror Weekend. For more information on this event, click the link below for tickets, more guests and other updates.
