Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors returns to the New York area for its 30th Anniversary, the weekend of June 5-7, 2009. After years of holding the events at regional hotels in Northern New Jersey, Fangoria is returning to the heart of Manhattan, with all events being held at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The guest line-up for this year’s anniversary event includes Dario Argento, Tobe Hooper, Doug Bradley (Pinhead from the original Hellraiser films), Ashley Laurence, Tony Todd, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Tom Savini and many other icons of dark entertainment.
Some of the highlights of this year’s horror-con include a Weekend Of Horrors SpooksModel Contest, the famous Fango Costume Competitions, the Terrifying Tattoo Savage Contest, which is being held for the second year, with Tattoo Savage on hand to help judge the contest, as well set up photo studios to capture all of the horrific ink.
Fangoria is again offering a Gold Weekend Package that gets you autographs from the majority of attending guests, reserved best of theatre seating, admission to a Saturday evening Celebrity Bash tentatively featuring Dario Argento, Tobe Hooper, Doug Bradley, Ashley Laurence, Tony Todd, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Tom Savini, Caroline Williams, Marilyn Burns, Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, C.J.
