Virginia Beach horror convention convenes for the third bloody good time!
The BLOOD AT THE BEACH horror convention in Virginia Beach was originally held in April of 2012. Convention organizer Al Keisel held the second BLOOD AT THE BEACH in November of 2012 and the third is going to be held May 10 – 12, 2013.
For a new, relatively small convention, they’ve attracted some great guests in the past, and continue that trend with the upcoming show. Zombiewalk Hampton Roads will be holding one of their zombie walks and canned food collections to kick things off this time as well.
Scheduled guests currently include Michael Rooker (THE WALKING DEAD, SLITHER), Bill Moseley (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2), William Forsythe (ROB ZOMBIE’S HALLOWEEN, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, BOARDWALK EMPIRE), Michael Berryman (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS), P.J. Soles (JOHN CARPENTER’S HALLOWEEN, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, CARRIE), Doug Bradley (HELLRAISER), Traci Lords (EXCISION, BLADE), special effects pioneer and actor Tom Savini (FRIDAY THE 13TH, PLANET TERROR, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN), Julian Sands (the WARLOCK series, ARACHNOPHOBIA, SMALLVILLE), Andrew Divoff (WISHMASTER 1 & 2, LOST) , Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13TH 7, 8, 9, HATCHET 1, 2, 3) Jonathan Tiersten (SLEEPAWAY CAMP, THE PERFECT HOUSE) and Josh Stewart (THE COLLECTOR, THE COLLECTION, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES).
Check out the BLOOD AT THE BEACH website for further details and to keep up to date as they will be continuing to announce new guests and events as the con approaches. The organizers are promising more details to come, but in the past this event has included film screenings, autograph periods, and a VIP party with a band on Saturday night. If you’re in the mid-Atlantic area, this is going to be a blast, and it’s always good to show up and support the horror community in your area and region.
