After a few years away in Tampa, Spooky Empire is returning to Orlando this month.

The horror-themed answer to MegaCon hasn't been held since 2019, thanks to a virus much scarier than any demon or immortal killer. The relaunch will encourage guests to mask up, though that's not much of a problem for the costume-heavy convention.

The Orlando return will feature some big names from everyone's October movie watchlist including Freddy Krueger himself, actor Robert Englund. Other guests include Freddie Prinze Jr. (I Know What You Did Last Summer), Kathy Najimy (Hocus Pocus) and wrestler Mick Foley

The event starts with a Zombie Walk from The Pub to the event space at the Hyatt Regency Orlando on October 22. The so-called "dark side of Comic Con runs for three days. Three-day advance passes are currently on sale for $85. Single-day advance tickets are $45. VIP packages run $250/person.
