For diehard horror fans, Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend is the final destination for the celebration of all things horror and freaky.
Taking place the weekend for Halloween, this wicked convention brings worldwide-horror fans to Orlando to meet and mingle with celebrities guests, enjoy live bands and horror films, learn the latest on the art of scaring, show off freakishly extravagant costumes and generally have a rowdy good time.
This non-stop weekend of horrors held at The Doubletree at Universal Studios, October 25-27, begins with the famed Zombie Walk down streets in the heart of Orlando's attractions area.
The rest of the weekend is filled with chances for horror fans of all ages and from around the world, to get up close and personal with their favorite horror movie and TV stars, purchase collectibles, see new and up and coming films as well as the old favorites, get tattooed by some of the best artists from around the world, and of course party 'til you "drop."
Some of this year's celebrity guests include the reunion cast of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), The People Under The Stairs cast, Patricia Quinn from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Doug Bradley from Hellraiser. Famed rockers, Dee Snider from Twisted Sister and Peter Criss, Legendary Kiss member will be on hand Friday and Saturday.
Ultimate Horror Weekend has grown significantly since its modest start in Fort Lauderdale in 2003. Since permanently relocating to Orlando, it has become one of the largest horror conventions in the nation, with more and more fans attending each year.
Spooky Empire's ultimate goal is to provide memorable events for horror fans to return to each year, a place where they can congregate with thousands of other people with the same interests.
For those who love a great horror flick or just enjoy a good freak show, the Ultimate Horror Weekend convention is the perfect convention for you to attend while having a ghoulishly-good time in Orlando.
