We are one week away from the beginning of ShockaCon, West Virginia’s premiere horror and sci-fi convention. The Beni Kedem Shrine Center will be packed with movie and TV stars, cosplayers, artists, vendors, Ghostbusters and more, and they’ll be signing autographs, holding question-and-answer sessions, meeting the fans and a wonderfully macabre time is guaranteed for all.
This is the sixth year for ShockaCon and this year they welcome back two previous and popular guests, Ari Lehmen (the first Jason Vorhees) and actor, director and writer, Geretta Geretta. New guests on tap include Naomi Grossman (“Pepper” from American Horror Story) and two actors from The Walking Dead, Lew Temple and Josh Turner.
Plus there will be more actors, panels (yours truly will discuss forty years of Star Wars toys with Mark Wolfe and Lee Harrah), Trivia contests, costume contests, instructional workshops (build your own torso), a costume parade, games, authors, filmmakers and tons of cool stuff for you to get into.
Just check out this nifty video…
