Just when you thought it was safe to go back to Ohio...

Presenting the annual Horror Con, just outside Cleveland, that's so nice they're having it twice this year. First, from April 1st, 2nd and 3rd and then from September 30th, Oct 1st and 2nd.

Past speakers and guest have included Christina Linberg (Maid In Sweden, Thriller: A Cruel Motion Picture aka They Call Her One Eye), Jason Vorhees' Mum Betsy Palmer and Lynn Lowry (I Drink Your Blood!, Cronenberg's Orgy of The Blood Leeches aka Shivers and the original Crazies (1973)).

This year, in addition to 2 screening rooms running rare indie and cult flicks, Italian giallo director Ruggero Deodato (the pseudo-doc Cannibal Holocaust), Micheal Berryman (the original Hills Have Eyes and The Devil's Rejects), David Hess (the original Last House On The Left) and effects animator Tom Sullivan (The Evil Dead franchise) will be the guests of honor.

Cannibal Holocaust
Ruggero's pseudo-documentary Cannibal Holocaust features gore galore.

Other notables include infamous 60's sexploitation director Radley Metzger(!), Mr. William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects, Raising Arizona and The Untouchables tv series) as well as a wide selection of public access horror show hosts from Ohioland with many knowledgeable vendors from all over the Midwest.
