Darlings, as you may recall, Acadia Einstein and I are headed to Charlotte’s Mad Monster Party horror con this weekend. I’m pretty excited about this year’s film festival, which includes a whole roster of short horror films, a subject near and dear to my heart.
Well, “heart” may be a misnomer, but you know what I mean, kittens.
Just in time, the MMP highlight schedule and the film festival schedule have both been released and the line up looks great – check out this teaser reel.
The combined schedule of events is below. If you’re interested in attending, you can find film festival details over at Mutantville, and more information on the con at Mad Monster Party. Acadia and I will also be live posting highlights over at Google+ throughout the weekend, so stop by and say hello, either online or in person! We are, of course, dying to hear from you.

sounds like a great time, enjoy. Take lots of pics!!! share 🙂 Get the scoop on Army of Darkness II from Bruce Campbell. I wish I could make it to the festival. We have Fangoria here in NY but its so commercial and blah! They used to do the Chiller Convention in NJ but I haven’t heard about it in recent years.
Thanks! I think next year it’s Acadia’s turn to come out here – we don’t have a great dedicated horror con, but San Diego Comic Con has its moments. 😉 I’m planning to have a killer time in NC.
Can’t wait to see pics and posts from you both!!
Acadia is already flexing for the camera.
