What is HorrorFest?
El Paso HorrorFest is very similar to El Paso Comic Con – mostly because it’s from the same creative minds. Think of it as the dark side of a comic-con. Kind of like a 2-day Horrorween, if you will.
Like its comic book and sci-fi counterpart, the horror equivalent will have vendors, panels, featured industry guests, and meet and greet opportunities with celebrity guests.
A vampire-themed café, horror-themed escape room, and a costume contest will be part of the mix, too.
Other Special Guests
Ryan Hurst will also be making an appearance at the horror convention.
Hurst played "Beta," The Whisperers second-in-command, in Season 9 and 10 of the AMC post-apocalypse zombie series "The Walking Dead."
Other special guests include actors involved in the horror classics "Candyman," "Resident Evil," and "Scream."
When is El Paso HorrorFest?

Cool. That gives me time to get my white bed sheet dry-cleaned and cut out two eye-holes. I’m winning the costume contest, y’all.
