Now in its fifth year, HorrorConUK's Something Wicked® is the UK’s original & best horror party! 

If you love horror, then we think you might just love the two days of Something Wicked® at Magna Events on the 11th & 12th May 2019.

HorrorConUK is the only European convention to be named as one of 'The world's top genre events' in Rue Morgue Magazine's Annual Horror Convention and Film Festival Guide 2019. 

This year they have some very special guests, which include world renowned Italian horror film director Dario Argent, American Horror Story & True Blood actor Denis O'Hare, Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors actor Jennifer Rubin, The Monster Squad's Count Dracula Duncan Regehr and the first UK convention appearance for Ed Neal, best known as The Hitchhiker from the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Many more guests to be announced!

Many of special guests will participate in a live talk in the HorrorCon theatre with hosts Tony Earnshaw, Darrell Buxton, Bunny Galore and Ben Wilkinson. Maybe you'll have the opportunity to ask a question - so think of a good one! 

Horror genre artist Graham Humphreys will also be bringing his iconic artwork, and also a specially commissioned print featuring HorrorCon's 2019 guests available exclusively to HorrorConUK's Something Wicked®. 

There will be screenings of a number of specially selected international horror film shorts over the course of the weekend. For details on the films & times please check The HorrorCon website. Please note films are strictly 18's and over.

And that's not all;The Blackpool Horror Crypt will be bringing a selection of their famous movie monsters, props and madmen to display at the show in their chamber of horrors!

And to finish off the day with a bang is the "Scareplay" costume competition hosted by Bunny Galore and This is Scary. So if you have a dream to dress as Freddy, or toying with the idea of Chucky, or you think you could nail Pinhead's look, then you need to enter here It's free to enter, and there are some amazing prizes to be won!
