A self-destructive, horror convention vendor meets a blood-drinking author who may be able to save her.
"When living with the past becomes too painful...it's nice to know there are options."
HorrorCon is a very different kind of genre film, filled with rich characterization and fresh story elements. In it, a young, female vendor attends a horror convention while suffering the painful, lingering repercussions of a terrible, personal tragedy where she was beaten and raped, and her boyfriend was murdered. Addicted to pain pills and battling both mental and physical torment, she can barely endure returning to a place that strains her once joyous memories through a filter of loneliness, heartache and pain. Soon, she's pursued by a mysterious, celebrity author who happens to collect vials of blood for autographs and who may be able to offer her one, final chance at a future...but one that could mean changing everything she knows about being alive.
It's an odd love story of sorts with a heart of darkness, and some of the scenes will be shot at an actual horror convention(s), utilizing the kind of chaotic and colorful set atmosphere I could only dream of affording. With some limited participation from those in attendance, the goal is to create a gripping tale of pain and redemption with a "reality" like tone that will contrast poignantly against the darker, more artful tone of the intimate hotel room and hallway scenes. The production relies less on special effects and more on plot, character development and actor performances. Thankfully, I've assembled a remarkable and memorable cast of supremely talented actors that are also terrific people.
Once completed, HorrorCon will be submitted to festivals and marketed for distribution. Hopefully, a successful run will see both the cast and crew attending horror festivals all around the country. It would be tremendous to meet all those who were kind enough to pledge, so hopefully all will follow the production developments and keep in contact with me through the movie website/blog: www.horrorCon-the-movie.com.
