Infernaldreams.net and Venom and Honey have had  the great honor of being invited to Fright Night Film Fest every year since 2007.

This convention has been going since 2006 and has always been run by fans for fans and has just grown bigger since.

Friday marked the beginning of possibly the biggest Fright Night Film Fest/Fandomfest convention we’ve yet seen.

And we at Infernal Dreams are so far having a great time.  At the historical Galt House, official Hotel of the Kentucky Derby, this establishment has hosted celebrities, sport stars, presidents and royalty and it’s definitely giving all of its guests the royal treatment this year.

I’ve already run into Tyler Mane, Robert Rusler, Deborah Foreman, Danny Hicks, and Bill Johnson and that was just at the afterparties!

Especially this weekend, which is proving to be the hottest in Kentucky, the hotel is providing a cool oasis for horror fans, sci-fi fans and pop culture nerds like me, just walking around and bumping into fellow fans, cosplayers and celebrities alike. It’s like we left earth and are on a different planet….That’s ok, I like this one, they seem to speak my native language of fangirl!

Fright Night

Later on in the day, Fright Night Film Fest will be welcoming Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, and Bruce Campbell to its line-up. In fact, I have it on excellent authority that Bruce Campbell is already at Galt House.  (Have to cut this entry short. Have to go stalking!)

Thanks to AAAALLL the volunteers and the promoters who are helping run this convention smoothly and with fans having fun in mind, This is really just the most exciting ever! Keep watching my blog and my facebook, I’ll be updating with pictures shortly!

Love, Mimi

Sitting in the hotel room, sipping Starbucks, I’m trying to sum up our time so far at Contamination 3D and I’m struggling. It’s not specifically horror, it’s not specifically Sci-Fi, but there’s definitely something for everyone, and it’s been fantastic!  Held at Reinassance Hotel by the airport it boasts a guest list of Michael Berryman, Vernon Wells (Weird Science, Mad Max), J. LaRose (Insidious, Repo! The Genetic Opera) and the one and only RON JEREMY, whose presence has inspired way too many “That’s what she said” jokes.  Meeting him was surprising, he was very pleasant and tasteful, and incidentally hosted a viewing of “One Eyed Monster”  which pretty much packed the viewing room with his anectdotes of filming.

Many conventioners were there in costume, the 501st legion was out in full force in honor of Peter Mayhew attending. Yes. I met Chewbacca. Image

I’m glad I’m smiling in the photo, because afterward I had to retouch my mascara. Just sayin’.

Did I mention the cosplayers?  This guy was awesome. Image

Full character mode and everything.  The venue hall is MASSIVE. Seriously MASSIVE. I absolutely love that, there’s so much room to move around. Excellent choice, promoters!

Today’s agenda for me will be holding it together when I meet Pat Priest and Butch Patrick of “The Munsters” fame. I don’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t know who the Munsters were, so this will be a big deal to me!  I will also be talking to Stacy Dixon, her husband filmmaker Ben Dixon, who just released a special edition of “Old Habits Die Hard”, his slasher movie featuring Kane Hodder with Tricia Cast of Young and Restless fame.

“Excuse me, madam, I’m the Doctor….”

As well as actors and celebrities, movies and panels, there’s also a 3D Haunted House set up for guests to go through and practice their zombie hunting skills.  It’s going to be a beautiful day!

Many thanks to the promoters for hosting Infernal Dreams and Venom and Honey and allowing us to spread the good word about Contamination 3D!
