Orlando Screamfest this Weekend!

Only four days to go!
Spooky Empire’s Screamfest is ready to roll in just four short days! The show is being held right in Orlando, Florida just a few blocks away from Universal Studios. Head on out and make a grand weekend out of it! Hit the show during the day and Halloween Horror Nights after hours!

Screamfest this year looks to top last year’s convention with an all star roster of horror guests including Robert Englund, Gunnar Hansen, Doug Bradley, Kane Hodder, Shawnee Smith, Stephen Geoffreys and Lloyd “Dolla” Kaufman! On top of that there will be a tattoo room featuring Florida’s best skin artists and plenty of kick ass bands!

Screamfest will also be housing the Freak Show Film Festival, hosted by the lovely Krista Grotte and featuring a film by our good friend John Faust: By Appointment Only (review)!

Why else should you go? Well, I’ll be there and I’ve got a lot of stuff to give away to attendees. If you see me, Kryten Syxx, and speak the magic words, “Paul W.S. Anderson is a dirty bastard,” you’ll get a special AVP prize! Head out, hang out and enjoy the show!

Don’t miss out on the party; buy your tickets here and book a hotel room.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
