header

We are now only 2 days out from HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati, and there are even more updates pouring in. More additions, cancellations and Norman Reedus photo op questions answered.

As mentioned in yesterday’s HHW update post, megastar of The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus is now SATURDAY ONLY. This brought forth questions from fans about the photo ops they have purchased, well this was said in the HHW group on Facebook:

NORMAN REEDUS PHOTO OPS:

OK gang, here’s what’s going on for all Norman Reedus photo ops at HorrorHound this weekend. All tickets will be honored on Saturday, If you have a Friday ticket and can’t make it on Saturday email us immediately at info@celebphotoops.com about a refund. Time is of the essence.

We will still be selling all Saturday photo ops for Norman on site, on a cash only basis. We want everyone to get their photo. We’ll shoot as long as there are people there to shoot.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all again at the Sharonville Convention Center this weekend starting at 5pm.

The newest cancellation to note is Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). He unfortunately had to cancel due to work on a Ben Affleck film. The amazing HorrorHound Crew did however make a new addition to the roster, Regan MacNeil herself, Linda Blair.

If you purchased a photo op with George Wendt (Cheers, House), you are in for a big treat. George will be dressing up as his beloved character Norm from Cheers for photo ops.

The Sharonville Convention Center is a large building, and when you’re swept up in the glow of the convention awesomeness, it can be a little difficult to make a game plan or find your way around. Maps of the convention layout along with a coded guide to which guests will be in which rooms has been released.

The final update is kind of an ironic one. Old Spice, yes the deodorant company, will be on hand giving out samples.

With so many last minute changes being made, Nathan and the rest of the HorrorHound Crew are being swamped with emails and questions in the Facebook group and Facebook like page. To ensure that everyone sees the important updates and everyone gets their questions answered, be sure to check out FAQ section of HorrorHoundWeekend.com, it has been updated and many of the most asked questions can be answered there.

I can personally only provide so many updates. To keep up to date on the minute to minute changes, be sure to join the HorrorHound Weekend Group and like the HorrorHound Weekend Facebook page. More updates have been added to HorrorHoundWeekend.com as well.

Here’s to hoping Norman Reedus does not cancel for all those that have purchased photo op and VIPs to meet him, and wishing him a world of luck for cramming 3 days into 1, he is one amazing individual. 

Hope to see you all there!

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.

On top of all of the fantastic guests, don’t forget about the Re-Animator reunion which will include Jeffrey Combs, Stuart Gordon, Bruce Abbott, Barbara Crampton, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon and Dennis Paoli. For full guest list, be sure to check out HorrorHoundWeekend.com/guests

HorrorHound Weekend Update

We are now a day away from one of the best conventions I have ever attended, HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati. Beginning Friday, March 21st through Sunday March 23rd, you can join fellow horror fans and meet your favorite horror icons. I know I have plugged this convention previously, but there have been quite a few changes made.

There have been a few cancellations. Norman Reedus (filming), Kane Hodder (filming), Barbara Crampton (filming) and Alan Howarth (schedule conflicts). Don’t worry, the great people at HorrorHound have added a few great names to help soften the blow. Some of those great names include Clifton Collins Jr (The Stoned Age, Pacific Rim, The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day), Daniel Thomas May (The Walking Dead) and Jose Cantillo (Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead).

1911911_10202602266111474_1073377961_nIn addition to the awesome event t-shirt you can pick up at this year’s show, you can also pick up the “Sons of HorrorHound” t-shirt to help commemorate the appearance of Sons of Anarchy Star, Kim Coates. Not only will it be available as a t-shirt, but it will also be available as a women’s tank along with the “Horror’s Hallowed Grounds” design.

For those of you that are interested in a professional photo op, the schedule is now available at HorrorHoundWeekend.com. To help keep the line moving and to optimize time, Bruce Campbell will not be doing photos at his table, he will be photo op only. As far as I know, he is the only guest that will be doing this, and before you start thinking he’s a jerk, he’s not. With someone as popular with the fans as him, a VERY large line is anticipated, so to help accommodate all of his fans, this is necessary as he will only be appearing on Saturday and Sunday.

There are also floor layout maps available for the weekend on the HorrorHound Weekend Facebook page.

Many of the pre-sale tickets have sold out, but feel free to check out the select pre-sale that are still available here. There WILL be tickets available at the door. Just a reminder for those of you that purchased pre-order discount tickets, DO NOT share your ticket’s QR code with anyone, and do not post pictures of it. There are problems with this every year. That code can only be scanned once, and if someone else uses your code before you, you have just paid for their admission.
