SOME OF THE HOTTEST GENRE LABELS JOIN FORCES FOR THE BIGGEST HORROR EVENT AT COMIC CON!!! Why am I using all capital letters? Because I’m shouting the exciting news! Read on for the details.
Seven plus North American entertainment properties leading in horror, thriller and suspense content are joining forces to celebrate genre entertainment at this year’s Comic-Con by hosting “Con of Darkness,” an evening genre-party saluting Comic-Con fans and industry insiders alike. This invitation-only party takes place Friday, July 19, at San Diego’s gothic-inspired Voyeur nightclub from 8-11 PM PDT. The event is produced by veteran production and communications agency, A-List Communications who successfully produced last year’s horror genre event.
MPI/Dark Sky Films, who is releasing “Frankenstein’s Army” in theaters and on VOD on July 26th; IFC horror imprint IFC Midnight who is promoting “Maniac” (starring Elijah Wood), “Room 237”, “Antiviral” and “Errors of The Human Body” this Comic-Con; Entertainment One (eOne), horror-centric website, DreadCentral.com; The Haunted Hotel; Femme Fatales, the hit TV series, whose second season debuts on DVD this week from eOne; and Shocktillyoudrop.com all will co-sponsor the event along with other partnerships soon to be announced. Event producer David Manning of A-List Communications says, “It’s rare in the genre universe to have this number of properties join forces to entertain and honor their fans and colleagues. This unique partnership enables a really diverse array of visuals and entertainment for guests to enjoy.”
“Con of Darkness” guests will experience an interactive event replete with spectacular visuals from all event partners; a VIP suite decked out by Dark Sky Films; music spun by a surprise special guest DJ; go-ghoul dancers; entertainment and customized refreshments. Food will be appropriate to the occasion; party guests can expect to suck, er, snack on:
- Bloody Fingers: Mozzarella sticks with marinara
- Puking Pumpkin or Melon: Guacamole and chips
- Eyeball Skewers: Grapes and melon balls in a honey-lime dressing
- Oozing Meat Balls: Open-faced meatball sliders on a skewer with tomato ketchup
- Intestines on a bun: Bacon-wrapped hot dogs with spicy beet sauce
- Shattered Glass Cupcakes and raspberry blood
Attendance is by invitation only with many celebrity guests expected to attend. However, access to a number of lucky Comic-Con fans will be available through social media giveaways by each of the partners.
