Halloween may not be until October, but celebrating all things scary is fair game year-round.
Horror culture gets its time to shine when the Mad Monster Party fan convention hits Glendale from Friday, July 8 through Sunday, July 10. The weekend event takes place at the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel, 9495 W. Coyotes Blvd., in Westgate.
Among the almost two dozen actors from scary movie culture scheduled to attend are Neve Campbell, from “Scream,” “Party of Five,” and “The Craft,” on Saturday and Sunday only; Nick Castle, known for playing Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s horror film “Halloween” and who also co-wrote “Escape from New York” with Carpenter; and Danny Trejo, of “The Book of Boba Fett,” “Breaking Bad,” “Machete” and “From Dusk Till Dawn.”
Dealer Room hours during the weekend are 6-11 p.m. Friday, July 8; 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, July 9; and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, July 10.
The event not only includes celebrity guests. Fans can attend Q&As, experience photo-ops, shop with merchants of macabre from all across the country, kill your favorite songs at Scaraoke (scary karaoke), and enter the costume contest for cash prizes.
A three-day “SHRIEKend” pass is available for $90 for all-weekend access. General admission is $40 on Friday and Sunday, and $50 on Saturday. Kids 12 and under accompanied by an adult are free.
Tickets will be on sale at the door, cash only.
