We are now a day away from one of the best conventions I have ever attended, HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati. Beginning Friday, March 21st through Sunday March 23rd, you can join fellow horror fans and meet your favorite horror icons. I know I have plugged this convention previously, but there have been quite a few changes made.
There have been a few cancellations. Norman Reedus (filming), Kane Hodder (filming), Barbara Crampton (filming) and Alan Howarth (schedule conflicts). Don’t worry, the great people at HorrorHound have added a few great names to help soften the blow. Some of those great names include Clifton Collins Jr (The Stoned Age, Pacific Rim, The Boondock Saints: All Saints Day), Daniel Thomas May (The Walking Dead) and Jose Cantillo (Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead).
In addition to the awesome event t-shirt you can pick up at this year’s show, you can also pick up the “Sons of HorrorHound” t-shirt to help commemorate the appearance of Sons of Anarchy Star, Kim Coates. Not only will it be available as a t-shirt, but it will also be available as a women’s tank along with the “Horror’s Hallowed Grounds” design.
For those of you that are interested in a professional photo op, the schedule is now available at HorrorHoundWeekend.com. To help keep the line moving and to optimize time, Bruce Campbell will not be doing photos at his table, he will be photo op only. As far as I know, he is the only guest that will be doing this, and before you start thinking he’s a jerk, he’s not. With someone as popular with the fans as him, a VERY large line is anticipated, so to help accommodate all of his fans, this is necessary as he will only be appearing on Saturday and Sunday.
There are also floor layout maps available for the weekend on the HorrorHound Weekend Facebook page.
Don’t forget all of the other great things going on that weekend. TOM+ CHEE presents Night of Terrors featuring Harley Poe, The Screamin’ Ink Tattoo Festival, Horror’s of Cosplay, Film Festival, celebrity panels and much more!
Other guests include Sean Patrick Flanery, David Della Rocco, Doug Bradley, Ellie Cornell, Ted Raimi (along with many other ‘The Evil Dead’ and ‘Evil Dead 2’ cast members), Clint Howard, Michael Rooker, Scott Wilson, Chandler Riggs, Laurie Holden and many more. Full list of guest here.
Many of the pre-sale tickets have sold out, but feel free to check out the select pre-sale that are still available here. There WILL be tickets available at the door. Just a reminder for those of you that purchased pre-order discount tickets, DO NOT share your ticket’s QR code with anyone, and do not post pictures of it. There are problems with this every year. That code can only be scanned once, and if someone else uses your code before you, you have just paid for their admission.
HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati 2014 will be held at the Sharonville Convention Center (1135 Chester Rd. Cincinnati, OH). Registration will begin on Friday between 1pm and 2pm. Show hours are Friday 5pm-10pm, Saturday 11am-7pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. Hope to see you all there!
