Local horror convention Fantasm is returning for a second year in the flesh, and con organizers say that, for now, this October's sequel is going ahead as planned at the Rosen Shingle Creek.

Featured guests this year include stars from the cult hit Halloween III: Season of the Witch like Tom Atkins (!), Stacey Nelkin and director Tommy Lee Wallace. Also on hand will be P.J. Soles, Mimi Craven,
Camille Keaton, and local authors Jackie Sonnenberg and Bram Stoker Award winner Owl Goingback, among many others.

Fantasm joins Megacon in going ahead with live events planned for October.

Fantasm happens on the weekend of Oct. 2-4 at the Rosen Shingle Creek. Tickets and information on guests and the host hotel can be found here. Follow Fantasm's Facebook page for any updates on scheduling or rescheduling.
