Horror-Rama, Toronto’s only all-horror movie culture party and convention, screams to life for its third horrifying year at The Hyatt Regency on King St. The show will open its bloody gates on October 15th – 16th and a star-studded roster of genre stars and filmmakers are set to attend.
Toronto’s premier event for fans of all things horror and macabre conjures ghoulish guests, eerie exhibitors, putrid panels, queasy Q&A’s, exclusive tales and behind-the-scenes gossip from the world of horror cinema, and screamingly scary screenings of foul films that will become instant creepy classics.
Horror-Rama is owned and operated by Toronto video store legend Luis Ceriz of Suspect Video and filmmaker, writer and former Fangoria magazine Chris Alexander. With Suspect closing its doors at the end of this year, Horror-Rama aims to continue celebrating that spirit of horror, dark fantasy and exploitation fandom, offering attendees the chance to get up close and personal with their heroes, groove to an in-house DJ, thrill to our convention floor live performances and buy tons of incredible horror swag from our dozens of vendors.
Attendees can expect to experience mystifying supernatural performances, inspect an incredible cabinet of curiosities and human oddities, pose with an array of horrific life-sized props, gaze at astonishing outfits and costumes, and win prizes from spooky event sponsors – all to the soundtrack of DJ Johnny Revelation spinning all weekend long.
