Horror fiends were out in full force when the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors convention stormed the Los Angeles Convention Center this past weekend. As usual, Fango gave genre fans a lot to keep them busy over the three-day event.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't realize what a fortunate individual I am. That's right, kids -- from time to time your old Uncle Creepy gets to take part in some truly mind-numbingly psychotic antics!
OK, kids! The Dread Central gang are off to the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors. Know what that means? It means we're gonna be partying, and lord knows we need it!
Earlier this week we pointed you in the direction of the Fearsome Fango Film Show Line-Up for the upcoming Los Angeles Weekend of Horrors running April 17-19, 2009. Now that the full event schedule is live, we thought we'd point out a few "choice cuts" (i.e., those panels that we here at Dread Central are either moderating, participating in, or just generally think you shouldn't miss).
Listen up, Chicago-area horror fans! Looking for something charitable to do but still want to stick close to your horror roots?
While they put the finishing touches on the panel schedule for this weekend's Los Angeles Weekend of Horrors, the folks at Fangoria have just released the line-up for the Fearsome Fango Film Show (running all three days: Friday in Room 502 A, second floor; Saturday & Sunday in Room 501 A-C, second floor; both located in West Hall B).
The guys and ghouls who staff Dread Central are all located in the US, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have lots of love for our brethren in grue over on the other side of the pond.
Festival programmers Shade Rupe and Chris Bavota announce their first collaboration: the Deep Red International Festival of Fantastic Film, or DRIFFF, debuting in Portland, Oregon at the Clinton Street Theater, April 24-25, and in Seattle at the historic Grand Illusion Cinema, May 8-9.

Last fall the Steve Allen Theater teamed up with Hollywood Mobile Movie to bring fans one hell of a drive-in horror movie festival. Good news, California horror fans -- starting next week the mayhem begins anew!
A few weeks ago HorrorChick Heather dropped all the details on us about the upcoming Philadelphia Film Festival/CineFest 09's Danger After Dark series. If you live in the area and were on the fence about attending, a slight change in the schedule should help you make up your mind in favor of taking the plunge.
Premiere Props announced today that they will be hosting a massive auction of never before seen movie props and costumes with Fangoria and Creation Entertainment for the Fangoria Live Auction at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors.
Are you a fan of the classic A Nightmare on Elm Street and also enjoy DVD commentaries? If so, this is a live event you likely won't want to miss. Wes Craven is planning on attending a screening of his infamous 1984 film and will be doing a live commentary there with fans in the theater!
We all love the Captain. I'd be hard pressed to come up with another genre actor still working within the biz that has had a crazier career than Sid Haig. The man has worked with everyone from Lon Chaney to Rob Zombie, and come tomorrow evening -- the devil will be getting his due!
