This weekend, continuing today through to tomorrow September 15, 2013, "The Scarefest," Lexington Kentucky’s Horror/Paranormal convention will be continuing on with special guests from Horror movies and Paranormal investigators from Ghost Adventures to Destination Truth.
In particular, Malcolm McDowell, known for “A Clockwork Orange” and Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” as well as 2010’s indie hit, “SUCK” where he starred alongside Alice Cooper.
McDowell had graciously bowed out from last year’s Scarefest due to health reasons, but after a swift recovery, kept his promise and was charming fans and staff alike with smiles and handshakes.
Also returning is Kane Hodder and Danielle Harris from the “Hatchett” series of films, alongside actors from HBO hit series “True Blood”, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell, and Jim Parrack. Sam Trammell even re-arranged a shooting schedule to appear this weekend.
Chandler Riggs, of “The Walking Dead” fame was there today as well.
“The Scarefest” is in its sixth year with a new “Portal” feature, an area dedicated to gaming and gaming culture. It began in 2008 with the promoters combining their talents to create a convention aimed at both horror and paranormal as they both tend to cross into one another at times. Patti Starr, owner of Lexington’s Ghost Hunter store and Mystical Paranormal fair has been prominent in keeping the convention afloat, successfully launching the exciting event.
The event also boasted the return of Kane Hodder and Danielle Harris from the "Hatchett" film series.
Amateur Ghost Hunters can enjoy panels held by Chip Coffey, of "Psychic Kids" fame, Josh Gates of "Destination Truth" and Grant Wilson from the famous "Ghost Hunters" series.
"The Scarefest" will continue tomorrow, ending at 4 p.m., tickets are still available for purchase at the door.
