In anticipation for the return of Creation Entertainment’s venerated Weekend of Horrors presented by Dark Sky Films to Los Angeles, Screamfest LA and Creation invite you to join us for Screamfest LA’s Official Weekend of Horrors Kick-Off Party, to be held Wednesday, May 19 at 8pm at Kung Pao Kitty (6445 Hollywood Blvd. at Wilcox Avenue in the heart of Hollywood, CA).
“Screamfest is thrilled to host the kick-off party for Creation’s Weekend of Horrors,” says Rachel Belofsky, founder and festival director of the non-profit Screamfest LA Film Festival. “Our monthly mixers celebrate horror filmmakers, and pairing with Creation to co-host the kick-off party for the prolific Weekend of Horrors will only bring the horror community that much closer – and should be a blast.”
Like the previously well-attended mixers Screamfest LA has thrown at Kung Pao (which have allowed fear filmmakers and fans alike the chance to network over cocktails and Asian cuisine), the Screamfest LA Official Weekend of Horrors Kick-Off Party will be horror-industry heavy, with fright flicks screening on the flat-screens, the Kitty staff serving up some special horrific concoctions specific to the event, photo opportunities and no cover charge.
Guests attending the party who register their e-mail address at the door for Screamfest LA’s running in the Pepsi Refresh Project will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win free General Admission Weekend Passes ($138.00 value) to Creation’s Weekend of Horrors, running May 21-23 at the Marriott LAX (5855 West Century Blvd., LA, CA).
Guests at the Weekend of Horrors are set to include Dario Argento, Robert Englund, Tony Todd and many more. In addition to the amazing celebrity guests, Weekend of Horrors offers special events such as: Photo Ops, Autographs, 100 Years of Monster Movies’ Art Ghoullery, Grindhouse’s Frightful Film Room, Zombie Walk, Shock-N-Roll Spooktacular & Coffin Case’s Xtreme Fashion Show, Creepy Costume Contest, Tattoo Savage Magazine’s Tattoo Contest, Previews, Vendors, Auctions and more. For up-to-date information visit the official Weekend of Horrors website.
