    Man I’ve been to a couple Horror conventions and this lineup sure is sick! I really need to try to get to this specific one next year. Actually scratch that cuz I’ll be attending Cherry Falls, NJ in March so that’ll work for me! Unless of course I’m a millionaire by then……..Ha! doubt it!

  • That’s a very exciting roster! I wish I could attend. These things rarely happen where I live, but at least I got to meet Adam Green at the Victor Crowley Road Show in October (which was a surreal experience).

    Holy fuck the line up for this convention makes me grow a big rubbery one. Just saying.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Tempted to go for Dee Snider alone. Great lineup on this one.
