Convention Update: HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati March 20-22nd 2015

header

HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati begins this Friday, March 20th, and updates continue to pour in. Guest additions, guest cancellations and more have been announced, and I am here to give you the most important changes.

Let’s start with guest changes. I’m sure most of you are aware that Norman Reedus will now be appearing SATURDAY ONLY. Below is a quote from Nathan Hanneman (the guy awesome enough to put the convention on) about why this is.

“Due to being booked for a talk show in LA later this week, we are put in the position to move Norman Reedus’ flights around to try and get him to HorrorHound Weekend – and it appears there will be no way for him to make it to Cincinnati in time to sign on Friday evening – meaning, Norman will now be a Saturday-only appearance. We were just informed of this change and are working out the details, but wanted to post this news ASAP. More information ill be posted as soon as we have it, including updates from his management direct.” – Nathan Hanneman 

Another change has been made that will affect how long you may have to wait to meet The Walking Dead superstar. Reedus’ line will not really be a line per-say, when the doors open, a “ticket line queue” will begin. Basically, you go to Norman’s table and pick up a ticket, said ticket will have a number on it, a bit like taking a number at a deli, this will keep everyone from having to stand in a huge line for just one autograph. For more information on this ticket line queue, visit the FAQ section of HorrorHoundWeekend.com

Unfortunately, guest cancellations are common due to schedule conflicts. There have only been 4 cancellations this year. Those cancellations include Alex Winter (The Lost Boys), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog) and Mitch Pileggi (Shocker). Now that the bummer news of cancellations is out of the way, there have been some pretty awesome additions, C. Thomas Howell (The Hitcher), Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead).

No autograph price list has been released, the HorrorHound Weekend Crew is just as unaware of autograph prices prior to the show as we are. The only ones for certain are AJ Bowen (You’re Next) and Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills), who will be signing for FREE.

extramoneyAutographs are typically the most expensive part of conventions, so if you need a little bit of extra money for those names and have some collectibles laying around collecting dust, visit Wayne and Rob at the “The Print-Pixs Booth”.

The biggest change aside from the ticket line queues for high demand guests for this year is the Coco Key Water Park Party.This year, the party is pre-sale only, and the tickets have already sold out according to the ticket site. 

There are a lot of exciting films being screened this year including the world premiere of Old 37 starring Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley. Not only will the film be screening, but Kane Hodder himself will be in attendance, pretty awesome bonus. The film that was dubbed the scariest film of the past decade will be screening as well, The Babadock. For full film festival schedule, visit HorrorHoundWeekend.com/events.

Convention Update: HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati 2015

header

Convention season is upon us, and one of the biggest horror cons is only a couple weeks away, HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati has had some new guest announcements, schedules are being made, ticket prices are changing and so on and so forth. So, who will be joining the ranks along with the already announced Re-Animator reunion?

Some of the new names that have been announced include Jason Mewes (Mallrats), Norman Reedus (Friday and Saturday ONLY)(The Walking Dead), Kane Hodder (Hatchet), Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Katharine Isabelle (Ginger Snaps), Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary), Tom Atkins (Night of the Creeps), Madison Lintz (The Walking Dead), Jason Patric (The Lost Boys), Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story), Ryan Hurst (Sons of Anarchy), Alanna Masterson (The Walking Dead), Lawrence Gilliard (The Walking Dead), Terrance Zdunich (The Devil’s Carnival) and Jesse Hutch (Freddy vs. Jason). You can find the full guest list >>HERE<<.

Unfortunately, every convention is subject to having guests cancel due to work or scheduling conflicts. There have been only two cancellations as of now for this year’s Cincinnati show, Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog) and Alex Winter (The Lost Boys).

One of my personal favorite parts of conventions, especially HorrorHound, is the awesome list of films that will be screened. This years list includes some pretty promising looking films. I have only seen one of them, The Other Side, which I reviewed. You can read that review >>HERE<<. The one that I am most excited to see is Old 37 starring Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley. I’ve heard so many great things about the film, and it is finally getting a showing and will be released on DVD later in March. See the full list of films being screened along with a bit of information on them >>HERE<<.

Panels are another reason many go to conventions. HorrorHound has an impressive guest list, so of course the list of panels is going to be just as awesome. Some of them include an Old 37 panel, American Mary panel, Guardians of the Galaxy panel, Re-Animator panel and more to be scheduled. For the full list of panels and times, visit the events section.

What fun would a horror convention be without a great list of vendors to buy some cool sh!t from? HorrorHound always has one of the largest vendor lists around, and their vendor room is a horror nerd’s Wonderland. Some of the vendors on tap for this year include Dark Sky Films, Dead Ink, Living Dead Dolls, Samhain Horror, Scarebears, Super Pumpkins, Troma and so many more. For the full list, visit the vendor section of HorrorHoundWeekend.com.

As usual, the closer you wait to the date of the convention, the higher the ticket prices will be. There are still pre-sale tickets available. Single day passes are $20, Weekend passes are $40, VIP passes are $175 and weekend passes with early entry are SOLD OUT.  Pick up your tickets now at HorrorHoundWeekend.com to avoid higher prices, sell outs and longer lines at the door.

Planning on staying a couple of days of the entire weekend? Hotels near the Sharonville Convention Center are filling up fast. You may want to get your reservations made quickly to avoid longer travel times. Here is the full list of the closest hotels.

On the weekend of March 20-22, 2015, the biggest names in horror will join some of the most hardcore horror fans in the Sharonville Convention Center. There have already been several exciting guest announcements made and even more to come.

JeffreyCombsOn the subject of guests, one of the biggest announcements made is that of a Re-Animator reunion.

Other guests include Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), George Wendt (House), Mitch Pileggi (Shocker), Richard Brooks (Shocker), AJ Bowen (You’re Next), Jeff Kober (Sons of Anarchy), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), Brian Thompson (The X-Files), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story) and Pedro Miguel Arce (Land of the Dead). Some pretty talented MichaelRookerartists have also been added to the HorrorHound Weekend roster such as Nathan Milliner and Joel Robinson. More guests will be announced as the show approaches, and all guests are confirmed as of now, but may cancel.

The Ink Fusion Tattoo Festival will also be returning this year. Some of the world’s most talented tattoo artists will be tattooing. You can score some pretty amazing ink from names like Marc Draven, Chris Jones, Josh Wiley and many more. Pricing and schedules available at HorrorHoundWeekend.com.

Tattoo-MarcDravenPanel times are still yet to be announced, but on Saturday at noon, there will be the Horror Host Hall of Fame Ceremony. Other special events include the annual HorrorHound Film Festival and a cosplay contest.

HorrorHound Weekend always has the best list of vendors. Vendor spots always fill up quick, but there are still some spots available. If you are interested in setting up a booth this year, you better jump on it before they’re gone.JoshMcDermitt

One thing that fills up faster than the vendor spots are the hotels. There are several hotels within walking distance of the convention center, but you have to act fast on those. They are usually filled up or close to by the end of January. Don’t worry though, there are tons of hotels that are just a very short drive away.

MitchPileggiTickets are already on sale at HorrorHoundWeekend.com. Special low prices are only for a limited time, and the closer to the event we get, the less of a deal you will be able to get. Day passes, weekend passes and VIP passes are all currently available. Children 12 and under get in free.

Convention hours are as follows, Friday, March 20: 5pm-10pm, Saturday, March 21: 11am-7pm and Sunday, March 22: 11am-5pm.
