Flashback Weekend will also be returning to its roots by screening John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN on a giant outdoor screen, drive-in-style, on Saturday night.
A celebration of all things haunted and Halloween, Chicago Frights is a new convention that will bring together people of every age and level of experience who love haunted houses, Halloween and scaring people. From the creators of HAuNTcon, Chicago Frights is a great way to kick off the pre-Halloween season with a fun-filled four days and nights of preview tours of area haunted houses, over 40 hours of frightful education, a dealers room full of makeup, masks, costumes, props and all kinds of haunting equipment and services, and networking opportunities like the hearse show and costume party.
If you’re a vendor who sells horror-, haunt- or Halloween-themed products, Chicago Frights wants YOU on the Dealer Floor!

If you wanted to create the climactic scene from H. P. Lovecraft’s “The Shadow Over Innsmouth” as a still image, you could draw it. Or you could paint it. Or, if you’re dark photographer Joshua Hoffine, you think bigger!
Joshua has teamed with frequent collaborator and Chicago-based makeup FX artist J. Anthony Kosar to physically create the scene in question, fish-men and all, using practical makeup and effects, and it’s even going to feature none other than horror fan favorite Doug Jones as the protagonist. Then he’s going to photograph it!
As you might imagine, such an endeavor comes with a hefty price tag, and that’s where you come in – backing this project comes with a list of great rewards, not the least of which is (at the $50 level) an 8.5″ x 11″ print of the final image (larger versions will be available). So by backing the project, you’re also just pre-ordering the print!
This is a ghoulishly fun Chicago-based horror project that NEEDS to happen. To see the pitch video and get the full details visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshuahoffine/innsmouth-a-joshua-hoffine-photographLeave a Comment Go to Post...
Zombie Army Productions will once again be hosting its annual Chicago Zombie Prom at The Cubby Bear (1059 W. Addison, Chicago, IL 60613) on Saturday, June 20th, from 8:00 pm to 2:00 am. As Chicago’s #1 Zombie Event, Zombie Prom is a ghastly, affectionate, cheesy blend of nostalgic high school Americana and the living dead. Zombie attire and makeup are required, but if you do not have your own makeup, zombie makeovers will be available for a $10 donation. This year’s Chicago Zombie Prom is pleased to welcome Libido Funk Circus as the live zombie band, guaranteed to animate your corpse on the dance floor all night!
Other Chicago Zombie Prom highlights include the annual crowning of the Zombie Prom King & Queen, a photo booth and a free buffet (open from 8:00-9:30pm). Throughout the night there will be door prizes and giveaways from Zombie Prom Chicago’s sponsors which currently include Zombie Army Productions, Statesville Haunted Prison, Sinister Visions, Dark Chicago, Zombie Outbreak Apocalypse Tactical Laser Tag and HauntedHouseChicago.com.
