Days Of The Dead (Con Review)- House Of Tortured Souls

Over the past weekend I had the privilege to volunteer at the Days Of The Dead convention in Atlanta, Georgia and as always, it was a blast. Days Of The Dead is one of my favorite conventions to attend and having volunteer for them before I couldn’t pass it up again. The convention had headliners such as Clive Barker, Hellraiser Cast (Barbie Wilde, Doug Bradley, Simon Bamford, Ashley Laurence,  and Nicholas Vince), David Howard Thornton (Terrifier), Tony ToddSid Haig, Bill Mosley, PJ Soles, and Kathy Najimy.  

With all conventions there are positives and negatives with some added pointers for the next con, but in this case I must say it ran very smoothly all weekend. Each celebrity and vendor room were very organized and easy to navigate and spread out. The back hallway had all the panel rooms, photo ops and film room which had a poster on the wall with each event and times per day, very easy to keep up with so you didn’t miss out on what you wanted to catch. I helped out with the photo op lines, and we all know with Saturday’s being the busiest of convention weekends, this went pretty smoothly, the lines were easy to manage and able to line up early enough so con goers could get in and out to continue on with their weekend. Between con goers and guests, there was nothing but positive feedback all around which makes Days so successful. 

A Highlight for me personally this weekend would be seeing a lot of my con family, making new friends, meeting David Howard Thornton he’s such a great guy and has such a great personality, the VIP party, helping out with the line control, and catching some panels. I also just love the overall atmosphere and seeing everyone just enjoying theirselves with one shared interest… horror. 

This was a great convention kickstart to 2019 and I can’t wait to see not only what Days has in store but for other conventions as well. 

Overall Grade: A
