LONDON,KY – It felt like an honour to be a part of the maiden voyage of “Dead Winter Horror Convention” which was two years in the works. Bragging celebrities such as Ari Lehman, John Dugan, Alex Vincent, Tony Moran, and Aron Houdini, last of the Houdini line, and local celebrities such as ZP International, Kayla Perkins, Cassidy Rae, Lyzayne Whitaker and author Bertena Varney. I’m not even naming everyone, there were still filmmakers and paranormal guests I’m sure I’m missing…I do apologize if I didn’t list you.
It kicked off early on Friday, and went on strong until Saturday night, with vendors setting up to entertain patrons with unusual items you wouldn’t find in stores and would pay top dollar for online. The venue was one of the roomiest I’d ever seen since my first “Fright Night Film Fest” convention, with no problem navigating either room in the London Kentucky Optimist complex.
Even driving through southern Kentucky to get there, you just felt part of a horror movie experience, fortunately, the venue was very easy to get to, just two turns from the interstate. Not much chance getting lost in the wilderness, but I’m sure with effort I would have managed!
Guests, staff and volunteers alike ensured all of us conventioneers had a very positive experience. Highlights included Aron Houdini’s escape from handcuffs and straightjackets, make up effects demonstrations from Lyzayne (for a small fee, she would make patrons up like bloodthirsty zombies) and several paranormal panels during the course of the weekend. And of course music entertainment, when Ari Lehman’s band, “First Jason” rocked the house Friday and Saturday night.
The energy at the Optimist Complex was high and everyone came out having a good time, least of all me! It’s no secret I prefer the more local conventions, as everyone makes an effort to keep it homey and intimate and casual, as is the Kentucky tradition in entertaining! There’s been rumblings already of Dead Winter II, and I really really hope the promoters once again allow Infernal Dreams/Venom and Honey be a part of promoting it, it has proved itself a valuable addition to the local Convention scene!
Keep an eye peeled for my video footage and upcoming interviews
