This year is a fantastic year for Halloween super fans.
Not only are we getting David Gordon Green’s fantastic looking sequel to the original John Carpenter’s classic. Now we’re learning that we are having an event called Halloween H40 that is celebrating the fourty years of Halloween.
To celebrate this storied 40-year old film franchise, this October 12 through 14 at the Pasadena Convention Center, the Halloween-based convention, H40: 40 Years of Terror is set to make waves in the convention industry.
For this special anniversary convention event, Trancas International Films is teaming up with HorrorHound Ltd., the promoters responsible for the midwest event HorrorHound Weekend, to deliver what will be the biggest Halloween convention to date. Celebrity guests (including directors, stars, and crew) from all eleven Halloween films are set to be in attendance as the H40 convention expands into a larger convention space than ever before.
The additional space means more exciting vendors, including notable Halloween licensees, and a number of not-to-be missed events, such as a special Horror’s Hallowed Grounds filming location tour, special gallery offerings, cast Q&As, exclusive H40 and Halloween merchandise offerings, and for the first time ever at the Halloween “Terror” event, professional photo opportunities (thanks to CPO) Ticketing launch date and pricing information (as well as special VIP packages) are expected to be announced within the month.
Not to mention exact guest attendee information, event and programming schedules and plans, and special surprises revolving around the upcoming Halloween film.
