Spooky Empire and Halloween Extreme team up to bring you an unseasonably macabre time

Not content to wait for Halloween, Spooky Empire, the folks behind the annual Ultimate Horror Weekend convention every fall, throw a smaller bash every May. This year, you can meet-and-greet with veteran horror actors like Brad Dourif (Child’s Play, The Lord of the Rings), Tom Skerritt (Alien, Top Gun) or Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters). Nearly half of the titular cast from American Horror Story: Freak Show are scheduled to attend as well. In between standing in line to snap selfies with celebs, browse Halloween Extreme’s selection of movie-quality props and effects to find the perfect accouterments for your next horror-themed party – or your living room if that’s how you roll. And just like at any con, there will be tons and tons of stuff to buy, so budget ahead of time and bring cash. 

noon Friday, 11 a.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. Sunday, May 15-17 | The Doubletree by Hilton, 5780 Major Blvd. | 954-258-7852 | spookyempire.com
