It all starts Friday at 4 p.m. with the annual Zombie Walk, this year starting from the Hooters restaurant near the DoubleTree. Walkers are invited to arrive early to get special FX makeup done by expert artists.
Some of the biggest names in horror and genre films will be in attendance, including:

For theme park fans, Spooky Empire has partnered with MuckleBones to create a unique walk through experience inspired by The Haunted Mansion attraction. Presented like a wax museum, this tribute will feature some favorite Mansion characters like you’ve never seen them before, including the Attic Bride, Hat Box Ghost and other “Grim Grinning Ghosts.” The display is free to guests of the convention.
Tickets for Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend can be purchased at their website or at the door.
