Saturday Nightmares Returns To New Jersey

It seems like it has been entirely too long since New Jersey had itself an amazing and awesome horror convention. For years many of us have been wondering when we'd be getting something back towards the scale of the Monster-Mania and Chiller Theater conventions of old. Well, it looks like we've finally got a contender.

Originally at the Landmark Loew's in my hometown of Jersey City, NJ, the Saturday Nightmares convention in NJ is moving to a bigger location and has an even more impressive lineup.

Running from June 3rd through the 5th this year, at the Sheraton Meadowlands Hotel in East Rutherford, NJ, the show already has a boastful lineup of some classic names in horror and sci-fi, from The Birds and Dawn Of The Dead to the man responsible for the voice of Roger Rabbit. Fucking awesome! Check out the website at and look below for just a sampling of some of the guests to be expected at the show.
