From the deadly dreamscapes of Freddy Krueger, to the graveyard where Jason Voorhees was resurrected, to one of the most perilous proms put to celluloid, the special guests for Crypticon Minnesota 2016 come from all avenues of horror genre history, and they will congregate this weekend in the Land of 10,000 Lakes for the 11th annual "Nightmare Before Halloween."
Crypticon Minneapolis may not begin until Friday, but festivities for the event will take place tonight at the Theatres at Mall of America with a special screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, featuring star Mark Patton on hand for an audience Q&A.
The event will then officially kick off on Friday, October 14th and run through Sunday, October 16th at the Crown Plaza Aire Hotel in Bloomington, Mn. Special guests include Thom Mathews, William Katt, Mark Patton, Kim Myers, Verne Troyer, Tuesday Knight, Jill Schoelen, Suzanne Snyder, »

It’s hard to believe another Flashback Weekend is almost upon us, but in just a few days, Chicago’s longest-running horror convention will descend upon the Crowne Plaza O’Hare (5440 N. River Road, Rosemont, Il), where thousands of fans will gather to celebrate everything they love about the genre. Flashback Weekend kicks off on Friday, August 5th and runs through Sunday, August 7th, complete with a star-studded line-up, nightly screenings, Q&A panels, costume contests, and much more.
This writer is pleased to be returning to Flashback Weekend for my sixth year as co-host. Two personal highlights for me at this year’s convention have to be the Scream Reunion Screening and Q&A on Saturday evening, featuring Neve Campbell, Skeet Ulrich, and Matthew Lillard, as well as seeing Don Coscarelli returning to Flashback, this time with Phantasm: Remastered in tow.
