The wonderful city of Cincinnati Ohio is hosting once again the HorrorHound Weekend horror convention. One of the true starting points for hardcore festivals goers this years crowd wasted no time in flooding the lines to see their favorite Walking Dead and horror film celebs for pictures and autographs. We arrived a little after 5 (time difference mix up) to a line around the corner of at least 500 patrons ready to enter. After securing press credentials we headed over to the Radisson across the street where this years film festival portion was housed.

"Day 1 Recap from HorrorHound Weekend 2014!"

There were a total of four features and four shorts shown on the first day but we were only in need of seeing a few. The standout film of the evening was Brian Williams’ Time To Kill which brought a huge crowd of fans. Another one of the main attractions of the evening was The Evil Dead Musical performance which packed a full house in no time.

The first day ended early but a few things to look forward to are the car show and lower level of the convention center which is featuring all the Evil Dead stars. So far we saw that Douglas Bradley, Kim Coates, Sharni Vinson, and a few more celebs were on hand for the first day which is always good for the patrons. We are expecting the main floor to be packed tomorrow and hopefully we will see a few more costumes too.

The overall layout of the Sharonville Convention Center is pretty solid as the grand hallways provide enough room for the fans to mingle successfully.Tomorrow will be the true test as Saturdays are the main drive on weekends such as these. So far the crew seems like a well oiled machine so I’m thinking the weekend will go off without a hitch.

There were a few panels as well tonight but we were only able to attend the Tucker and Dale session. We came in to hear star Alan Tudyk proclaim there will never be a sequel to the hit film and that’s fine by us. HorrorHound Weekend is going to be a busy affair but we should be able to provide a great amount of coverage so you don't miss out on anything. We are looking for scoops and great films to tell you about so make sure you keep track of all the exclusive coverage and reviews on Day 1 is in the books of HorrorHound Weekend with the optimism of a chaotic rest of the weekend on the horizon!
