Famous Monsters of Filmland Convention is Coming!

While the horror community continues to mourn the loss of one of our tired and true leaders, Uncle Forry, it really warms the heart to see his legacy alive and well. Today’s news reaffirms the fact that Forrest J Ackerman’s influence will never truly go away, and that’s a wonderful thing.

Famous Monsters of Filmland, the original sci-fi/horror/fantasy-genre magazine that captured over three decades of imagination, announces today its foray into the horror convention circuit. The official Famous Monsters of Filmland Convention will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 9-11, 2010. In attendance will be Thomas (The Mist, Punisher) Jane, a Night of the Living Dead reunion, the cast of the 20th Century Fox release Predators, and many more to be announced.

The weekend-long convention will be packed with special screenings, monstrous parties, exciting music acts, panels, a costume contest, and lots more.

“We are so happy to invite you to the first in a series of horrific gatherings hosted by your friends at FM,” said Philip Kim, Senior Manger. The event will be held at the Wyndham Indianapolis West located at 2544 Executive Drive, Indianapolis, Indiana.

    is this honoring Forry’s legacy…or is it putting money in the pocket of the ass that ripped Forry off?

    That’s a question btw, and not a statement.

      On 03/25/2009, an injunction was issued barring “mr. ass” from using the Famous Monsters of Filmland name. FM now has a new owner who intends to get it back on track.

      Hopefully, this generation will allow him do just that and not insist on another magazine filled with trend-hype, boobs and gore on every page. We’ll see but he damn sure has MY support!

        That sounds like a Fangoria reference. Alot of people around here love that magazine. I’m not one of them.

        • Gus Bjork

          I think there’s room for both, if not more. I agree with keeping a more classic feel to FM and not having it be a Fangoria clone.
