Dark Xmas

Sat., Nov. 17

Way back in 1999 Travis Bowen worked for Chiller Theater, which at the time was one of the biggest horror conventions on the East Coast. With Dark Xmas, which he founded in December of 2003 in Trumbull County, he sought to emulate Chiller Theater. The festival is still going strong; it comes to Norwood Inn & Suites in Hudson on Nov. 17 and 18. This year’s incarnation will feature a Nightmare on Elm Street movie reunion, the original credited Michael Myers from Halloween, the star of the original Sleepaway Camp, zombies from The Walking Dead and lots more. Autographs from celebrity guests, directors, illustrators and others are available for a fee. Celebrities and movie directors will take part in Q&A panels to discuss their careers and past, present and future projects. A gaming station will feature a video game system from the 1980s. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite character in competition for awards for the best dressed cosplay characters. Check the website for a schedule and for ticket prices.
