The convention will feature hundreds of vendors selling all sorts of macabre and spooky wares. There will also be a walk-thru haunt produced by Fear Farm, a horror prop museum, arcade games, tattoo artists designing horror-themed body art and just in time for Valentine’s Day, there’s a Horror Speed Dating session planned for the weekend.
