ScareLA is one of the biggest and best. Back in 2013 it was the first fan convention dedicated to Halloween, and even though it's faced some fiendish competition from other cons, the promoters strive to outdo themselves via weird workshops, creepy classes, impressive industry panels, haunted tours, screenings and more. This year the event will take place in a dark zone: Vendors and attractions will appear within the setting of a haunted experience, complete with mood lighting and pop-up scares. There will also be freaky VR fun, live dark bands and big names including renowned makeup artist Ve Neill, George Cameron Romero (son of the cinematic icon), John Murdy (creative director at Universal Studios' Horror Nights) and the queen of possession herself, Linda Blair.
Los Angeles has a problem. We are sick individuals who eat up all things eerie, bloody and horrific. Well, a lot of us do, anyway. For hardcore horror fans, celebrating macabre culture once a year on Halloween just isn't enough, which is why there are so many conventions throughout the year geared toward scary imagery and entertainment.
