HAVE YOU MADE YOUR

HALLOWEEN PLANS YET?

 

What better time to celebrate 10 years of Spooky Empire than the weekend before Halloween!

 

Plus a brand new venue to boot…could there

be a better combination?! It’s not too early to start planning.

 

 

CELEBRITY GUESTS

 

Appropriate enough, on Friday the 13th we made our initial guest announcement, over

20 guests right off the

bat. More than half are new faces at Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend! You all spoke, and we definitely listened. Hopefully we’ve come through with many of your

requests for guests.

 

Back for more this year is Robert Englund,”Freddy Krueger” of the Nightmare on Elm Street series.

 

 

Tyler Mane will be making his first appearance at Spooky Empire. Tyler is best known

from the films (Rob Zombies) “Halloween”

and “X-Men”.

 

Don’t miss out on rare cast gatherings from

the films “Zombie” and “Cannibal Holocaust” including director Ruggero Deodato.

 

 

 

Other newbies include Ernie Hudson”Ghostbusters”, Laurence Harvey ”Human Centipede 2″, Zoe Bell ”Death Proof”, andChristine Elise ”Child’s Play 2″.

 

P.J. Soles ”Halloween”, Mary Woronov and Dey Young, all come together to celebrate the film “Rock n Roll High School”

 

Last but not least, how could we forget the memorable voice of

The Crypt Keeper, John Kassir !

 

 

Some of our favorites are “returning from the dead”! Bill Moseley ”Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2″ and “House of 1,000 Corpses”, Ken Foree ”Dawn of the Dead” and “The Devil’s Rejects”, and of course Kane Hodder of “Friday the 13th, Part X” and “Hatchet”

 

MONSTROUS EVENTS!

 

Spooky Empire is not just about the guests, we have some monsterous events lined up as well.

 

Be on the lookout for more information on

events such as :

  • Live performances
  • Panels and  Q&As
  • Freak Show Film Festival
  • Tattoo Festival
  • Author Programming
  • Charity Poker Tournament
  • Zombie Walk

and more!

 

For all of you early birds that are staying at the Hilton, stop by the David’s Club and the Lobby Bar on Thursday night. Meet up with friends old and new, relax and get ready for the weekend.

 

Don’t forget about our annual costume contest. This year should be the best ever, being the 

weekend before Halloween. We want to see

the best, most creative costumes you can 

come up with, so as an incentive, we’ve

raised the amount of the prizes this year! 

So you better get working on that

costume now!!
