When it comes to horror conventions, we here at Dread Central are pretty damned jaded. We always make it a point to show up to party and even give away tons of free stuff at events all over the country. Speaking personally, during my convention going tenure I thought I had seen it all. I don't think I've ever been happier to be wrong.
We reported a few months ago that the lost footage from Clive Barker's Nightbreed had been found. Shortly after that an announcement came that the uncut print of the film would be shown to fans in attendance at the March HorrorHound convention in Indianapolis. The film was shown to a standing room only crowd and we've got the goods on what was added!

Monster-Mania stretches its tentacled appendages across the great state of New Jersey once again this coming weekend, converting man, woman, and child alike to the service of HORROR!!

You. Yes, you reading this. You wouldn't be a fan of say, oh, someone by the name of Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees, would you? What's that? Yes? Well, if you're in the LA area in May, you NEED to be getting yourself to Creation's Weekend of Horrors!
Now this is what I call exciting. We reported a few months ago that the lost footage from Clive Barker's Nightbreed had been found, and now if you're willing to make a trip, you can be amongst the few to see it!
