Do you LOVE zombies? Do you watch TV and cheer for the “Walking Dead?” Do you dream of being undead and walking among the living? Well here is your chance! Bring out your inner monster and walk with attendees at the area’s new haunt and Halloween convention, Chicago Frights! In collaboration with Chicago Zombie March, Chicago Frights will be hosting a zombie walk 3pm, Saturday July 18, and it’s FREE!
Come to the rear of the Hilton Lisle Naperville (away from the hotel), dressed in your tattered, rotting, bloody best, or get there early and let our makeup artists undead you up for tips! Monsters of all kinds, shapes, ages and sizes are welcome to come join in the hilarity and high jinks!
The zombie horde will gather at 4pm to stumble and stagger towards Mullens restaurant and bar for adult beverages and to mingle with whatever patrons are there. Then return to the Hilton and finish in the Dealer Room. You can find more info on the Facebook Event Page. So all you ghoulies and ghastly gals, come on out to the Chicago Zombie March/Chicago Frights Zombie Walk.
The Chicago Frights Haunts & Halloween Expo is July 16-19, 2015. For full information and to get tickets, visit http://www.chicagofrights.com.

Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records is a fantastic sci fi/fantasy/horror store just off the corner of N Milwaukee and N California, owned and operated by genuine genre fans Grant & Jennifer McKee. Currently they are in danger of losing their storefront and are asking the horror community for help – from their IndieGoGo page:
Bucket O’ Blood Books & Records has been offering a wide selection of the best new and used vinyl as well as Chicago’s best selection of genre fiction for 5 years, but we will soon be without a storefront. Moving is a daunting (and expensive) task, and we’re asking for your support to help us. Our lease is up at the end of July and we have nowhere to go. We’re seeking a larger storefront that will not only house our ever-growing collection of books and records, but also give our customers a better shopping experience and allow us to host a wider variety of store events. We cannot do this without your help!
Chicagoland horror fans, we can’t let this store wither away. Whatever you can do to help, do it, right now. If you have a couple of bucks you can donate, every penny counts. If you’re flat broke, share the IndieGoGo page so that somebody else might be able to help. We need to keep Bucket O’ Blood in Chicago!
Special thanks to Kreepylady Kristin / The Chicago Creepout for the heads up!

Twenty years after an accident caused the death of the lead actor during a high school play, students at the same small town school resurrect the failed stage production in a misguided attempt to honor the anniversary of the tragedy—but ultimately find out that some things are better left alone.Leave a Comment Go to Post...
