WIN TICKETS for HorrorConUK: Part 3!

The brilliant HorrorConUK (Part 3!) will once again be held at Magna Science Adventure Centre Nr Sheffield, May 13th & 14th. The leviathan venue is an old, atmospheric steel works that is rumoured to be haunted by the steelworkers who worked and died there.

They have many special guests waiting to meet you…

This year they include The Devil’s Reject’s fun loving but murderous clown Captain Spaulding, Sid Haig; Elvira, Mistress of the Dark actor Cassandra Peterson; Horror acting legend David Warner; Hammer & Tigon Films actor Linda Hayden; Nightmare on Elm Street’s Scream Queen Heather Langenkamp; and all the way from Oz, Wolf Creek actor John Jarratt. Also in attendance is pop culture expert and vampire aficionado Sir Christopher Frayling, who will be giving an unmissable talk on the first 200 years of vampires, as well as genre artist Graham Humphreys, who will be bringing a selection of his iconic artwork and a specially commissioned limited edition print featuring 2017 guests exclusive to HorrorConUK attendees! Extreme Horror Author Matt Shaw will also be there with his demon dog Chewie the Pug!

They also have the exclusive first showing of the Frankenstein Monster busts for the Monster Charity Project 2017, that will be auctioned in October for the Make a Wish Foundation. 

And if that doesn’t grab you by the throat you will also have the chance to meet the guests, purchase an autograph, attend the Q&A sessions and maybe ask a question, have a photo with one of the guests, or enter their Scareplay costume competition, hosted by the one and only most bedazzling Bunny Galore!

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next.
