HorrorHound Weekend makes its return to Indianapolis, Indiana this September 6th through 8th in what is set to be our largest event to date! And we wanted to make sure all of our hopeful attendees knew about our Monday Ticket Launch Day Sale! Every HHW, we celebrate the ticket on-sale date with a 24-hour sale, allowing our attendees the opportunity to secure tickets at their absolutely lowest price. This sale will occur Monday, April 8th – approximately 12pm (noon) – and go on for 24 hours. If you want to take advantage of all HHW has to offer, at insane discount pricing ... Monday is the day! (And please be mindful – early entry Weekend passes are known to sell out in this 24-hour window, and both VIP and Platinum Passes sell very, very quickly!)
To celebrate launch day - we have a new Guest to announce. We are excited to share news that ROSE MCGOWAN will be making her first-ever HorrorHound Weekend appearance this September 6-8th! Rose McGowan has a number of very impressive horror credits, including the iconic SCREAM, Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse (Planet Terror and Death Proof), Phantoms, Jawbreaker, The Black Dahlia, Rosewood Lane ... she was the star of TV's cult hit show Charmed, and also appeared in such films as Conan the Barbarian, Ready to Rumble, Monkeybone, Bio-Dome, Encino Man, and the TV series Nip/Tuck.
Our upcoming convention boasts an all-NEW location: The Indiana Convention Center! Located just across the street from last year's hotel locale, the Indiana Convention Center gives HorrorHound Weekend amazing growth potential – it's almost mind-numbing to consider the possibilities! To start with .... the HorrorHound Weekend vendor room (which started out at 11,000 square feet at our prior home in the East side) has expanded to a whopping 75,000 square foot ballroom space! That's over triple the size of our old stomping grounds (and over twice as large as last year's vendor room). Furthermore – you can expect the return of Mask-Fest grows to a stunning 10,000-plus square foot ballroom - JUST FOR MASK-FEST!!! (And yes, Mask-Fest will be housed in its own separate ballroom – returning it to its show-within-a-show setting.) Our new location also allows for expanded space for the HorrorHound Film Festival and our Q&A room – as well as additional meetings space, which will allow for our largest HorrorHound Weekend event to date (expect classes and tutorials to be among our added scheduled events). We are even hosting an all-new event as part of HHW this year: "Fact or Fiction Festival" – a tribute to Cryptozoology, Aliens, and Paranormal. Think "X-Files," but for horror nerds! As part of this special addition, the legendary Bob Gimlin (Patterson/Gimlin Bigfoot) will be making his final convention appearance ever! We are very excited about this new element of HHW and cannot wait to reveal more details! The best part is – our entire event will take place in one floor of the convention center, located off the central "S Capital Ave" entrance (right across from Georgia Street!). No confusing multi-level ballrooms. Just one giant event – one central entrance – easy to manage and enjoy!
Oh yeah. And once the show ends? The party moves across the street to the WESTIN – where we will be offering after-hour film festival screenings (well past midnight) as well as our Night Terrors concert and activities, extra nightly events (we are working on some cool ideas and concepts), and our Horrors of Cosplay costume contest – all of which will take over an entire hotel, assuring the after-hour experience you've come to expect and enjoy with HorrorHound Weekend.
We are working hard at securing celebrity guests for this show, and man, do we have some stunning names already announced! This includes celebrities from the SAW franchise (including Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith), Dexter (Jennifer Carpenter), The Haunting of Hill House (Henry Thomas, Kate Siegal), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Kristy Swanson) ... and we are just getting started! We look forward to the possibility of seeing all of our amazing attendees at HorrorHound Weekend: Indianapolis this September 6-8th, 2019!
