Horror Hound Weekend Is Just Around The Corner

Horror Hound Weekend is just around the corner (March 23-25) and I’m really psyched to attend and cover the show.  I love horror films and am quite happy to attend any convention that celebrates the genre.  I’m really looking forward to the panels for George Romero’s Day of the Dead, Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Stuart Gordon’s From Beyond.  The Day of the Dead panel will have cast members and crew in attendance in addition to special make-up effects guru Tom Savini!  Getting to hear them talk about the making of the film and the chance to meet all of them makes this horror fan giddy.  I’ve listed the celebrity guests you can see at the convention as well as the schedule for the panel and some of the film screenings.  Check out the Horror Hound Weekend site for further information and to buy tickets.  So if you are in the vicinity of Columbus, OH, come on out and enjoy the horror!  Maybe I’ll see you there.
