Convention season is quickly approaching, and the first one on my list is in the Zombie Capital of the world, Pittsburgh, PA, and that is Horror Realm. Spring Break will not be the same after this, join thousands of other horror fans at Horror Realm’s Spring Break Massacre 2015 Friday, March 6-Sunday, March 8 at the Crowne Plaza, Pittsburgh West Greentree.

derekmWhat would a Spring Break Massacre be without a pretty awesome list of horror guests? On the roster for this year’s show is talent such as Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Tony Todd (Candyman), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story Freak Show), Erika Ervin (American Horror Story Freak Show), Tiffany Shepis (The Prometheus Project) and Sean Whalen (Laid To Rest). Thinking of a name that is missing from this list? Don’t worry, Horror Realm is not done announcing tonytguests just yet.

Horror Realm is a convention for horror fans by horror fans, so you can rest assured that this won’t be your run of the mill, corporate convention. If you have questions, comments or concerns, I’m sure they’d be more than happy to help you out. You can join their mailing list and/or submit your questions to them at Info@horrorrealmcon.com.

To keep up with Horror Realm and they’re newest announcements, visit HorrorRealmCon.com. You can also “like” the official Facebook Page, join the Spring Break Massacre 2015 Event Page and follow them on twitter (@HorrorRealmCon).

I hope to see you all there! The massacre begins Friday, March 6th at 5pm. 

Updates and Changes For Epic-Con Ohio

Convention season is now in full swing, and for citizens of Ohio and others traveling to Epic-Con Ohio in Dayton, there are a lot of updates learn. Epic-Con Ohio is only 55 days away starting Friday, October 24th and running through Sunday, October 26th.

One of the biggest additions is a Free Willy reunion with a very rare convention appearance by Jason James Richter and Lori Petty (Tank Girl). More notable additions to the already phenomenal guest lists include Tiffany Shepis (Shaknado 2), Robert Mukes (House of 1000 Corpses), Jennifer Jostyn (House of 1000 Corpses), Anne Bobby (Nightbreed) and making his first con appearance ever, Tom Wright (Tales From the Crypt) . All quests are confirmed, but can cancel due to professional obligations.

The one thing any fan dreads seeing when they look at a con’s guest list is the cancellation of their favorite stars. Unfortunately, things come up and cancellations must be made. Epic-Con has had a few guests have to bow out of this year’s con. Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Richard Horvitz and Janet Jay have all had to cancel. One more name could be on that list, Jake “The Snake” Roberts has been hospitalized for health reasons, but is still set to appear at he con. Read more about that and updates on his condition HERE.

One of the main attractions for this year’s con is the screening of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed Director’s Cut. This screening will be on Saturday, October 25th at 7:30 pm. Actors Simon Bamford, Anne Bobby and Chris McCorkindale will be in attendance for the screening.

For two night’s only, October 24th and 25th, The Powell Road Death March Haunted Trail will be open. For more information on this attraction, the charity it benefits and ticket prices, head over to deathmarch.org.

Many fans complain about Sundays at conventions, but Epic-Con has a few fun surprises up their sleeves for their fans. On Sunday ONLY, Tim Shockey and The Green Goblin Head from the Stephan King classic, Maximum Overdrive, will be in attendance. Get your picture taken with a piece of cinematic history and shake the hand of the man that restored this amazing work of art. Many remember Steve Cardenas as the Red Ranger from the 90’s hit television series The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, but he is now a karate master. Master Cardenas will be giving FREE, yes FREE, karate lessons Sunday only.

Those are all of the Epic-Con Ohio updates I have for you now, but I will continue to keep everyone updated. To keep an eye on the new guest announcements, cancellations and other updates, be sure to like Epic-Con on Facebook.
