Scare-A-Con (2019 Review)- House Of Tortured Souls

On Sunday October 20th I took an hour drive to Rochester, NY with my friend and 6 year old niece to our first Scare-A-Con experience.  I have attended many cons in various states, however this was my first time attending one closer to home and my first time attending Scare-A-Con.

Let me start off by saying how simple it was getting there and finding parking. There was no hassle or confusion. Upon arriving, the staff was very friendly with showing us where we had to go to get checked in, there was no confusion in finding anything—- there were schedules on the walls which showed where each panel was to be held at their scheduled times. There were 2 big rooms, one with the vendors and one with the celebrity guests. It was nice and organized.


U
pon arriving, we walked around the room where all celebrity guests would be, and I stumbled upon the lovely
Loren Molloy. She’s a super woman who does it all— actor, producer, director and author. Currently worked on the upcoming movie Yield. She has such a radiant personality and was very generous in signing one her children’s books for my niece.

We then made our way over to the one and only Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp). It’s always pleasure seeing her at cons. She gained a small fan that day, my niece who charmed her way into sitting with Felissa at her table.

Also had the pleasure of meeting Barbara Crampton (ReAnimator, Puppet Master) and Jonathan Tiersten (Sleepaway Camp). The kindness that they showed their fans is unbelievable, even making it such a pleasant experience for all but mainly how they took on to my niece. I know it’s a day that she will never forget.


Even though it was small and wasn’t a huge turnout on Sunday, everything was well planned and organized and the celebrity line up was pretty good. I will definitely find myself at another Scare-A-Con in the future.
