LA Weekend of Horrors: Choice Cuts

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).

Note: All guests/events listed are tentative. More stars are still joining the fun at this late stage, so expect lots of surprises all weekend long. And for the first time ever, there will be a second track of programming that will take place concurrently with the main track on Saturday and Sunday!
