Recently, Toronto hosted the inaugural Horror-Rama: Toronto’s ONLY All-Horror Convention. The show is the brainchild of Luis Ceriz, owner of Toronto institution Suspect Video: purveyor of all things morbid, macabre, silly, scary, creepy and cool. Luis wanted to bring to Toronto a convention where “Horror wasn’t an “alley.” Horror wasn’t a “section.” Horror was ALL it was about.” He teamed up with Chris Alexander, Editor-in-Chief of Fangoria and Gorezone, and like Frankenstein creating their monster, the two stitched together the pieces to create what turned out to be an incredible experience for all.
The two-day fest focused exclusively on genre film-culture. Attendees were treated to a bunch of awesome vendors, cool guests, film screenings and great music, all in a relaxed atmosphere that felt more like a chill hangout at your best friend’s than most cramped, sweaty conventions. Everybody from the guests to the vendors to the attendees had an amazing time and we can’t wait for next year. Chris and Luis created their Frankenstein and gave it life…now we want to see the Bride!
