It's almost that time again, time for HorrorHound Weekend to invade Cincinnati. On the weekend of March 20-22, 2015, the biggest names in horror will join some of the most hardcore horror fans in the Sharonville Convention Center. There have already been several exciting guest announcements made and even more to come.
On the subject of guests, one of the biggest announcements made is that of a Re-Animator reunion. Joining the guest lineup from the film include director Stuart Gordon, Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott and Barbara Crampton. Other guests include Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), George Wendt (House), Mitch Pileggi (Shocker), Richard Brooks (Shocker), AJ Bowen (You're Next), Jeff Kober (Sons of Anarchy), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), Brian Thompson (The X-Files), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story) and Pedro Miguel Arce (Land of the Dead). Some pretty talented artists have also been added to the HorrorHound Weekend roster such as Nathan Milliner and Joel Robinson.
More guests will be announced as the show approaches, and all guests are confirmed as of now, but may cancel.
The Ink Fusion Tattoo Festival will also be returning this year. Some of the world's most talented tattoo artists will be tattooing. You can score some pretty amazing ink from names like Marc Draven, Chris Jones, Josh Wiley and many more. Pricing and schedules available at HorrorHoundWeekend.com.
Panel times are still yet to be announced, but on Saturday at noon, there will be the Horror Host Hall of Fame Ceremony. Other special events include the annual HorrorHound Film Festival and a cosplay contest.
HorrorHound Weekend always has the best list of vendors. Vendor spots always fill up quick, but there are still some spots available. If you are interested in setting up a booth this year, you better jump on it before they're gone.
One thing that fills up faster than the vendor spots are the hotels. There are several hotels within walking distance of the convention center, but you have to act fast on those. They are usually filled up or close to by the end of January. Don't worry though, there are tons of hotels that are just a very short drive away.
Tickets are already on sale at HorrorHoundWeekend.com. Special low prices are only for a limited time, and the closer to the event we get, the less of a deal you will be able to get. Day passes, weekend passes and VIP passes are all currently available. Children 12 and under get in free.
Convention hours are as follows, Friday, March 20: 5pm-10pm, Saturday, March 21: 11am-7pm and Sunday, March 22: 11am-5pm.
