The Pacific Northwest’s only horror convention, Crypticon, returns to the Seattle area June 18th, 19th, and 20th, and if the guest list is any indication, this year looks to be an even bigger event than last.
Held just outside of Seattle in Everett, Washington, this con has been growing in size every year and has now become a major horror event attended by such genre faves as Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Don Coscarelli, Adrienne Barbeau, Lloyd Kaufman, and Ken Foree.
This year horror fiends can look forward to meeting Kane Hodder (Hatchet), Heather Langenkamp (Nightmare on Elm Street I & III), Amanda Wyss (Nightmare on Elm Street), Margot Kidder (Black Christmas, The Reincarnation of Peter Proud), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp, Zombiegeddon), Stephen Goeffreys (Fright Night, 976-Evil), terror scribes John Skipp and F. Paul Wilson, and many others.
Crypticon‘s popular make-up contest and fashion show make a return along with the MIFFF Film Festival, art show, and costume contest. There will be panels aplenty on all things horror (several of which will be hosted by Dread Central’s own Sean “The Butcher” Smithson and Heather Buckley), including comics, fiction, films, and Q &A’s with acting, writing, and SFX personalities who have worked on genre films of yesterday and today.
And, of course, no con is complete without a dealers room where horror fans can dig up those hard to find collectibles.
It all goes down at the Holiday Inn in Downtown Everett at 3105 Pine Street. Ticket and hotel rate information can be found at the official Crypticon website along with up-to-the-minute guest updates.
Yours truly will be in attendance all three days. Hope to see you there!
