The Days of The Dead Horror Convention charged its way through the beautiful city of Atlanta this past weekend, and iHorror was right there checking out all the craziness and fun this show had to offer. With Days of The Dead having its inaugural show back in the Summer of 2011, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN, the show is no stranger to what fans expect and has been doing an impressive job at taking aim in reviving classic genre conventions, this weekend was no exception to the rule. Days of The Dead is a semi-year-round horror convention that makes four different stops every year, Los Angeles, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Atlanta. Days of The Dead is known for their celebrity guests causing horror fans to come flocking from all over the world.
It is such a surreal feeling meeting your favorite actors and actresses, and for the most part, everyone is given the opportunity to conversate for a fairly good length of time. The prices varied from $40-$60 for autographs and photos at the guest’s table. The vendors that surrounded these wonderful guests were utterly amazing! Fright Shirts, Action Figures, Paintings, Sculptures, were just some of what was offered this year. The vendors that carried the obscure DVDs’ were a favorite of mine. All of the classics that I grew up with housed in one area! Overall the convention was large enough to keep everyone busy the entire weekend. The kids from the Netflix Original Series Stranger Things was a smash hit, along with their panel. The kids shared their experiences during auditioning and during the shooting of Season 1, although the group was not allowed to share any information on the upcoming season in October, their stories and experiences more than sufficed. The Sheraton Hotel was home to the convention and offered many amenities that could not be ignored, and the staff was wonderful. This marks my second time attending a Days of The Dead convention, my first in Los Angeles last year and many more to come. Be sure to check out their website by clicking here.
