Conventions of all genres are filling our nation giving horror, sci-fi and pop culture fans alike a platform to mingle with one another and meet their favorite genre celebrities. Most of us only get to see what goes on in front of us, but thanks to State Of Mind Productions and the Contamination convention in St. Louis, fans now have the opportunity to see behind the scenes and fell the true essence of a convention.
I was recently granted the opportunity to watch and review Contamination- A Convention Story. What is Contamination? Contamination is a convention held in St. Louis that blends together horror, sci-fi, pop culture and stars from the adult entertainment world into one event. I am normally not a huge fan of documentaries, but this one is worth the watch.
I have personally been to a few conventions and have had the opportunity to meet some of my horror heroes, and they have been some of the best experiences of my adult life. The only problem with meeting some of these celebrity guests? You’re not really sure if they are really that into it, but Contamination- A Convention Story gives an in-depth look into not only the conventions, but the guests, and they are all genuinely fantastic human beings.
You get to hear from some of the biggest names on the convention circuit such as Kane Hodder (Hatchet), Tony Todd (Candyman), Bill Johnson (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) and many more. It is great to hear how they truly feel about conventions and the fans they encounter.
If you are looking for an informative, genuinely amazing documentary on a convention and the feel of what it is like to attend one, I would highly recommend picking up Contamination– A Convention Story. It is not ridiculously long like many other documentaries, but it is packed with interviews, fan insights and much more.
