The final day of HorrorHound weekend unfortunately ended for us similar to past Midwesterner events with vicious cold weather to round up the final day. It was great to witness a nice amount of fans still lined up to see the favorite celebs on their last day. The festival was set to end at 5pm on Sunday evening but HorrorHound had enough stamina to sustain another day!
Our main focus of the day was to see the creature feature Blood Glacier otherwise known as “The Station” or “Blutgletscher”. From there we would make our way back to the main rooms to see how the festival was winding down. Hundreds of patrons lingered in the halls and doorways saying their final goodbyes to friends from other cities. The celebrity photo op and autograph signings rooms continued with lines stretching out the door that would clearly extend right up to the 5pm closing.
Vendors were doing their best to sell with last minute deals for the Sunday crowd. For us we headed over the Studio 605 table to chat with director Roman Jossart about the his film The Campground that is just starting to make it’s festival run. It will be showing at this years Crimson Screen Horror Festival in Charleston, SC on April 19-20. He also told us about another project his studio is involved in called The Woods Within which should be out sometime later this year. Another film that popped up on our radar was the slasher Don’t Go To The Reunion’ from Slasher Studios. Anytime there is a new generation of filmmakers and producers focusing on creating American style slasher flicks it has our attention.
We ended the day by chatting with a few vendors and patrons on their HorrorHound experience. Everyone was pleased at how the weekend turned out but few were in doubt that it would end in any other way. There is an unmatched camaraderie found at HorrorHound that makes the entire weekend a pleasurable experience.
Great films, costumes, panels and parties consumed the Sharonville Convention Center and Radisson Hotel this weekend. Horrorhound is a first class horror convention who even outdone themselves with the spectacular trophies and events as organized as they could be. We would like to thank HorrorHound Magazine and HorrorHound Weekend for having us at this years event. Don’t forget to head over to HorrorMoviesUncut.com for reviews and extended coverage and we will see you next year!
