This Saturday marks the third year for the Flint Horror Convention, Flint’s annual horror tradition that brings the fun of Halloween to the area a little early. With a low entry cost of $10 fans get a full day of fun that includes celebrity guests, costume contests, movies, vendors, a creepy pin up contest, and more all under the roof of Downtown Flint’s Masonic Temple. In past years fans have had a chance to meet some of the actors, directors, and make-up people behind their favorite horror films and this year will be no different with actors from DAWN OF THE DEAD, DAY OF THE DEAD, TROMEO & JULIET, and OZ – THE GREAT AND POWERFUL on hand, one of the country’s most recognized ‘horror hosts’, the person who created THE EVIL DEAD’s famous ‘Book of the Dead’, and a comic artist who worked on the post-apocalyptic zombie epic DEAD WORLD. Joining all of these celebrities will be over forty vendors selling everything from movies, to comics, to posters, to art, to shirts, to toys, creepy collectibles, and lots in between. If you need a break during the day and want to sit down for a bit you can check out the movie room, which will be featuring independent horror films from around the world, many which have never been screened in the state before.
The Flint Horror Convention is a family friendly event with free admission to kids under ten and a costume contest just for them where they can win great prizes. This is an event that was born in Flint and continues to grow every year and if you have an interest in the weird, the macabre, and in spending an entire day in horror heaven then you’ll want to stop by the convention and say ‘boo’!

It’s still Summer in Flint but this month’s Art Walk will have a little of October’s chill to it as The Flint Horror Convention presents Art Fear, an evening of dark art featuring local and regional artists. This is the third Art Fear and each year has featured artists whose works are not often seen during the usual Downtown Flint art crawl and many who are not from the area at all. The art will range from paintings, to photography, and to mixed media and there will even be two authors on hand with their dark books as well. There will be a decidedly spooky atmosphere to the show and it will be reflected in the art but while there will be shadows there won’t be anything creeping around the corners to offer up any scares so all ages are welcome at the show. The purpose of Art Fear is to showcase artists who don’t always find themselves or their work in galleries or set up at art shows and to show how much beauty there is in things that go bump in the night.
This is a free art show to attend and some of the art will be for sale, as well as the books from the authors. Also for sale will be some baked treats that the Flint Horror Convention will be selling.

Flint Horror Convention
This past Saturday, April 20 the Flint Horror Convention brought paranormal lecturer John E.L. Tenney to Flint to present one of his ‘Weird Lectures’ to a captivated audience at downtown’s Lunch Studio. Having worked on such television shows as Sightings and Paranormal State Mr. Tenney has been a paranormal researcher and lecturer for more than twenty years and has been on everything from Bigfoot hunts to home hauntings and was most recently part of a group of researchers that visited Colorado’s famous Stanley Hotel (featured in Stephen King’s The Shining) for an investigation. Called ‘Weird Lectures’, the talks that Mr. Tenney gives delve into the world of the strange and unknown peppered with stories from his own research and experiences in the field and done with an appreciation for how wonderfully odd the world can be. Since each lecture is different the one given in Flint covered several topics and always with a helping of humor. From conspiracy theories to UFOS to ghostly happenings and beyond this lecture was something completely new to Flint and Tenney had the audience’s complete attention for the two hours and after, as people asked him their own questions. John Tenney has been a guest for the first two years of the Flint Horror Convention and will be returning this October 19 for the 2013 convention, where he will have his many books for sale and will be giving a brief Weird Lecture.
