Exclusive: Jamie Lee Curtis Creates Video for HorrorHound AppearanceWe told you earlier about Jamie Lee Curtis making her first and last convention appearance at HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis on November 16-18, and now the great one has recorded an exclusive video teaser for us to share with you cats! Dig it!

Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on as the guest of honor at this November’s HorrorHound event. The event will take place over the weekend of November 16-18, 2012, at the Indianapolis Marriott East, 7202 East 21st Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46219.

Ms. Curtis will be appearing at the event on both Saturday (November 17) and Sunday (November 18) for autograph sessions, photo ops, and an on-stage Q&A panel that is sure to be epic. This is a landmark opportunity for fans as Jamie has never attended an event like this nor provided horror fans with the opportunity to have their memorabilia signed in such a capacity. And it’s all for charity, via the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. ALL monies earned from Jamie’s autograph sessions, photo ops, and stage event will go directly to the Children’s Hospital. In fact, part of the proceeds from HorrorHound Weekend’s ticket sales will also be donated to this amazing charity, and they will also be taking donations at the event for anyone wishing to help this cause further.

In conjunction with Jamie Lee Curtis’ jump into the world of horror conventions, Jamie wanted to make sure that it was expressed that this will be a one-time only appearance. Once this event is over, she will be retiring from the horror convention scene, making this appearance all the more important for all those fans who have been patiently waiting for this moment and opportunity to meet one of the most iconic actors in horror history. This is IT!

Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of actors Janet Leigh (Psycho) and Tony Curtis, began her horror career in one of the most important genre films ever produced: John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)! As central character Laurie Strode, she helped create the modern day scream queen. This was firmly established thanks to her follow-up roles in The Fog, Prom Night, Terror Train, and Road Games. In 1981 she returned to the role of Laurie Strode in Halloween II, after which she started appearing in more high-end projects and comedies including such classics as Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda, Blue Steel, My Girl, and Forever Young. In 1994 Jamie Lee Curtis co-starred in James Cameron’s True Lies. Soon after Jamie returned to the Halloween franchise with H20, released in 1998 (and again, appearing in 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection). More noteworthy film releases followed, including Virus, Freaky Friday, Christmas with the Kranks, and Drowning Mona. More recently, Jamie has played a recurring character on the hit TV series “NCIS”.

This November HorrorHound Weekend event will include a packed vendor room and will boast a number of additional celebrity guests to be announced. Halloween and Jamie Lee Curtis fans alike will want to assure they mark this date on their calendars!!! Please note that autograph tickets for Jamie Lee Curtis will be sold on the HorrorHound Weekend website in advance of the event. This decision has been made to assure that people traveling for this appearance will know prior to booking their travel that they in fact are going to meet this screen legend.

HorrorHound’s annual November event is usually held in Cincinnati, Ohio; however, due to the popularity of this event, it was moved to the more established (and larger) hotel in Indianapolis. HorrorHound Weekend will return to Cincinnati on its new date: March 22-24, 2013, at the Sharonville Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
