Fangoria's LA Weekend of Horrors (click to see it bigger!)Do you have plans to be in or around the LA area this weekend but aren’t sure what to do with yourself? Lucky for you, the fine folks at Creation Entertainment and Fangoria have the answer to your dilemma: The Weekend of Horrors, which is moving to new, expanded digs at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

This year’s event runs April 25-27, 2008, and features the 40th anniversary Night of the Living Dead reunion with director George A. Romero; stars Judith O’Dea, Kyra Schon, Bill Hinzman, and George Kosana; producer Russ Streiner; and writer John Russo. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Other guests include Clive Barker, Angus Scrimm, Ray Wise, Corbin Bernsen, Sid Haig, Ken Foree, Michael Paré, Tony Todd, Alex O’Loughlin, Sophia Myles, Shawnee Smith, Johnathon Schaech, Shannyn Sossamon, Tiffany Shepis, Joe Dante, Robert Picardo, and many, many more. Of course, there will also be vendors galore like Coffin Case, Rotten Cotton, and Fearwerx.

Also on the program are:

  • A Shock-N-Roll Spooktacular starring Nekromantix with The Coffin Girls Fashion Show and DJ Bundy (Friday night from 9:00 pm to 12:00 midnight)
  • Ongoing movie screenings such as Patrick Rea’s popular shorts “Café at the Crossroads” (review here), “Woman’s Intuition,” “Torture Porn,” and “The Fluff” (shown on Saturday, the 26th, at 11:30 am in Room 512)
  • Saturday night’s Celebrity Cocktail Party featuring The Reggie Bannister Band, Smith & Pyle, and Count Smokula (exclusive to Gold & Silver weekend patrons — currently SOLD OUT!)
