DAYS OF THE DEAD’s primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming social gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another “pay-and-go” autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene. Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hours scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, DAYS OF THE DEAD is rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.
