New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival is scaring the life out of genre fans, as the genre convention is taking over the Atlantic City boardwalk later this month, just in time for the Halloween 2019 season! The convention’s goal is for fans to see amazing horror movies in the indie scene, while also having the opportunity to mingle with big names in the genre. Fans can also participate in Q&A sessions, see vendors from around the horror scene and watch the latest films that will surely frighten them to death.
Filmmaker Ryan Scott Weber and Comic Book Men producer-pop culturist Rob Bruce formed New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival, which will also include photo ops and signings with genre celebrities, film awards, vendors, cosplay and a trivia contest. This year’s guests include Charlie Sheen, Christina Ricci, Carmen Electra, Steve Guttenberg, Edward Furlong, Craig Sheffer, Heather Langenkamp as part of ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ reunion, Jeremy London, ‘Cult of Chucky‘ actress Fiona Dourif, directors Jen and Sylvia Soska and ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ actress, Leslie Easterbrook.
The New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival was launched in 2017, after Weber attended other horror cons and film festivals. He wanted to put his own spin on the culture, so he asked Asbury Comic Con founder, Rob Bruce to join him on his journey and add his years of experience to the event.
The New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival team is made up of professionals in the horror field and past convention creators. It serves as both an industry insider’s networking event and a chance for fans of the genre to get together, meet some of the creative talents in the field and generally spend a weekend celebrating all things scary.
