If the normal Orlando Halloween happenings aren't quite enough for you, perhaps this is what you're looking for:
From humble beginnings in 2003, Spooky Empire has become one of the largest and most respected horror conventions in the country. This year's event will certainly help to cement things even further. I mean, just take a look at the guest list on the above poster!
In addition to the above, there will be special events including a zombie walk down International Drive, a shadowcast performance of Repo: The Genetic Opera, an afterparty for the Friday night Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson show at Tinker Field (rumors are already flying that the two headliners may well show up for the after party), a celebrity poker tournament, TWO monster museums (I can't wait to see the one on Evil Puppets), no less than three movie cast reunions (Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Cannibal Holocaust, Rock n Roll High School), a costume contest, a tattoo convention, a creepy car show (featuring classics from the Graveyard Mafia Hearse Club), the Freak Show Film Festival, bands and live entertainment (and probably some undead performances as well), autograph sessions, talks and presentations, psychic readings, shopping, and more. No, seriously -- MORE.
Also Freddy Kruegar, Jason Vorhees, and Michael Myers. Or at least the actors who play them.
I just don't think it gets more Halloween than Spooky Empire. I strongly recommend purchasing a weekend pass, and then plan for VIP next year -- this year's packages are already sold out.
