Motor City Nightmares - A Horror Fan's Dream

If you are a fan of Horror Films you have to go to Motor City Nightmares this weekend! The event is taking place at the Novi Sheraton and it will feature a film festival, celebrity guests, vendors, filmmaker workshops and more! Even if you aren't too into horror films, but you're into filmmaking, you might want to head out to this event. The MCN filmmaker workshops will feature Q&A sessions with successful producers, writers and directors. Some of the names involved are John Russo (Night of the Living Dead), Steven J. Wolfe (500 Days of Summer), Sean Tretta (12 Monkeys) and Michael Perez (Return of the Living Dead). From the fan side, a few of the celebrity guests that will be in house include James Karen (he's been on a million shows and in tons of movies), Thom Mathews (Jason Lives, Return of the Living Dead), Sid Haig (The Devil's Rejects, House of 1,000 Corpses), female rocker Lita Ford, and a full list of guys and gals from some of your favorite flicks. Check out the list here. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of The Return of The Living Dead, so quite a few cast members will be on deck for this event.

In addition to all of the great activities and features during the convention, there are also after parties on Friday and Saturday night that will feature some great music. The lineup for Friday night includes The Amino Acids and Soldier's Last Breath. Saturday night The Gutter Ghouls will be playing with Pick Axe Preacher and The Worst Of.

Motor City Nightmares will take place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 24th - 26th. There are numerous admission prices for the event. Your best bet is to buy a Gold Pass for $125, which will get you in to the convention all three days, VIP admission to the vendor area, VIP seating at the seminars and screenings, and access to the after parties. There is also a weekend pass that will get you in all 3 days to almost everything, but not the parties, seminars or workshops, plus you won't get the VIP treatment. That pass is $50. If you're just going one day, you can get the same access as the weekend pass with a day pass that costs $20 on Friday, $25 on Saturday or $15 on Sunday. If you just want to go to the after parties, you can do that too for $10 on Friday or $15 on Saturday. You can look at a list of pass prices here with the descriptions of each here. Presale tickets are only available until Noon on Wednesday the 22nd, but you can also purchase tickets at the door this weekend. Don't forget, just like at most conventions, most celebrities charge an additional fee on top of your ticket price if you would like an autograph or photo.

The Novi Sheraton is located at 21111 Haggerty Rd., Novi, MI 48375. For more details on Motor City Nightmares, head to or head over and "like" them on Facebook here.
