Tickets Unleashed for Midsummer Scream 2018

Tickets are now available for purchase for Midsummer Scream, the world's largest Halloween and horror fan convention! Midsummer Scream is returning to the Long Beach Convention Center July 28th and 29th for a weekend-long celebration of all things Halloween, and I seriously cannot wait! They have outdone themselves each year (check out my past coverage of the event HERE, HERE, and HERE!), and this third year promises to be the best yet! I mean, just looking as this little sneak preview of what (and who) you can expect to see this year should get you excited (and there are many more announcements of special guests, panels, presentations, etc. to come!):
  • Midsummer Scream will be commemorating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein.
  • Confirmed special guests include Kimberly J. Brown, star of the Halloweentown series of Disney Channel Movies (Marnie!), Buzzfeed Unsolved hosts Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej, and the hosts of the Shock Waves podcast (one of my favorite podcasts, by the way).
  • Slashback Video, the art exhibit which recreated an '80s era video rental store inside of Bearded Lady's Mystic Museum (check out my visit to Slashback Video last year!), will be making an appearance all weekend long at Midsummer Scream.
