It’s almost Halloween, and that means it’s time for all things horror. How about an entire convention?
The Flint Horror Convention is planned for noon-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at Riverfront Banquet Center in downtown Flint. You can enjoy an amazing guest lineup, along with horror movies, vendors, costume contests, the “Miss Flint Horror Con Pinup Contest” and more!
Flint Horror Con is comprised of friends who are lifelong fans of horror, special effects, haunted houses and all the things that go bump in the night. Right along with their love for the creepier things in life is a strong love for Flint, where the convention is held annually.

For those daring souls in the mood for an early start to their weekend and a little excitement in their week they need look no further than Rock ‘N Roll In Your Grave, the first event of 2014 put on by the Flint Horror Convention. This event will match the rollicking fun of rock music with the schlockiest of horror films to create an evening that fans won’t soon forget. Local bands Free Will and Rot Mouth will take the stage at the Flint Local 432 starting just after 7PM and will get the evening going with their inspired brands of the rock many of us grew up with but tinged with a little grim cheer. Following the bands will be a short intermission filled with classic movie trailers from some well-known ‘rock films’ before the evening’s feature film is presented – odd-ball rock classic Rock ‘N’ Roll Nightmare. Rock ‘N’ Roll Nightmare is best known for its star, muscle-bound rock singer Thor, whose band was known for their over the top theatrics. The film is the tale of an extreme rock band that sets up shop in an old farm house to record their newest record when creatures of darkness begin to appear and cause mischief, leaving it up to the band’s singer (Thor) to save the day.
With the weather finally starting to feel as if spring and summer are on their way it’s time to shake the cobwebs loose and get out and enjoy some tongue in cheek scares on the cheap at Rock ‘N Roll In Your Grave this Thursday.
ROCK ‘N ROLL OVER IN YOUR GRAVE
Thursday, May 8
7PM – 10PM
Flint Local 432 – 124 W. First Street
Just two days before Halloween, it’s a perfectly cryptic downtown event at the just the right time. The inaugural Flint Horror Convention is coming to the historic Masonic Temple in downtown Flint on October 29.
Come check out movies, special guests, vendors, ghoulish costumes and more during this full-day of creepy fun. Among the special guests this year is Ken Sagoes, an author and actor best-known for his role as “Kincaid” in the classic horror film series Nightmare on Elm Street. Sagoes has to his credit over 100 film, television and stage performances.
The convention is the brainchild of Chris Ringler, a local author and supporter of all things creative, and a skeleton crew of a committee. The convention will be the first of its kind in Mid-Michigan. Tickets are just $10 for the day.
