'Tis the season to be spooky! I'm not going to lie--I love this time of year but I am exhausted every time I look at my planner. Every weekend is booked for me. Why do I do this to myself?!
Son of Monsterpalooza returns to the Marriott Burbank Convention Center from September 14th-16th. Packed with Vendors, Special FX, Cosplays, Presentations, Special Guests and more.
Parking is available onsite at the Convention Center. There's no guarantee that you will receive a spot--so be sure to show up early! The price for parking onsite ranges from $12-15. Valet parking is also available. If you want to shop around for another parking spot--street parking is available as well as some nearby lots. But if you don't want to pay or drive and you live nearby--I highly recommend an Uber or a Lyft (as long as the driver isn't sketchy as fuck and you bring a friend with you.)
Tickets are available for purchase online but Saturday has limited tickets available and can only be purchased at the door. In my personal opinion--I wouldn't take my chances on something like that because you're not guaranteed admittance. However; there are tickets still available for Friday and Sunday online! Purchase them in advance here.
The line-up seems pretty solid next week. These are just some of the special guests that will be there...
Kathy Najimy from Hocus Pocus
Fairuza Balk from the Craft
Along with all the other excitement from this convention--there are some killer presentations. See what I did there? Here are just a few that you can expect but they will probably add more as we get closer and closer to the date! (You can check for updates here).
If you're a fan of Killer Klowns from Outer Space--then you definitely don't want to miss this panel. Killer Klowns from Outer Space celebrates 30 years of the cult classic by sharing behind the scenes videos! Be a part of the conversation as they chit-chat about the franchises' future while answering questions from the attendees! Don't miss out on this presentation.
Don't miss out on the advance screening of Eli Roth's History of Horror. This 7-Part Documentary will be released October 14th. Be one of the first to view this!
Cujo celebrates its 35th Anniversary with special guests Daniel Hugh Kelly, Danny Pintauro and Dee Wallace. If you're a fan of this Stephen King classic, you'll want to grab a seat for this!
Camp Cold Brook depicts the story of a paranormal team wandering through an abandoned summer camp where a murder took place. Special Guests; Joe Dante, Andy Palmer, Chad Michael Murray and Danielle Harris will be discussing this supernatural flick! This film is currently in post production.
There will be having some of their Freaky Faces up for grabs as well as Beetlejuice inspired items! Be sure to stop by! We will be at Tables 152 & 153! I went ahead and circled the location for you.
Sadly, I will not be attending Son of Monsterpalooza this year. It was definitely the hardest thing to cut from my schedule. I love this convention and look forward to it every year. But with multiple things coming down the pipeline; side projects, a second job, blogging, haunts, wedding planning--I'm practically about to explode and I had to eliminate an event.
