Things look good for Northwest horror/sci fi/fantasy fans for the rest of February, and March will be full of fun events as well.


Well, sorry I didn't get this edition of the Weekly Update out yesterday, but I think Cupid's aim was a bit off and I ended up with a head shot instead of one to the heart.  Oh well, maybe his aim will be better next year....

Wait a minute,
I'm beginning to think that wasn't Cupid!

Well, that doesn't mean I'm out for the rest of the month, and you shouldn't be either.  The rest of February is full of great events happening in the Northwest, so get out your calendar and make your plans now.

And be sure to visit the Horror Calendar for updates on the Emerald City Comic Con, details on the Science Fiction and Fantasy Celebration in Seattle, Evil Dead: The Musical coming to Renton, WA, the Northwest Comic Con in Tillamook, OR, the Frankenstein Comic Swap and Comix Thing in Portland, OR, and a lot of great movies screening across the region.

Remember, it's quick and easy to get an event listed on The Shadow Over Portland.  Just email me at shadowoverportland@live.com and I'll post the details on the site.  Oh, and don't forget, listing your event is FREE!

And, as always, should you attend any of the events listed on the site, let the organizers know you read about it at The Shadow Over Portland!

Get your calendars ready, because this early edition of the Weekly Update is full of great events!



Well, it's been a busy couple of days at The Shadow Over Portland office (better sounding that at my dining table), as I've come across a lot of wonderful events happening around the Pacific Northwest.  And, not surprising, a few have to do with Valentines Day.

Yep, we all know nothing says "I love you" more than going into a dark theater or creepy haunted attraction with your sweetheart and having the living hell scared out of you!


Oh, I love cherry filled chocolates!
They are cherry filled, right?

And, as always, The Shadow Over Portland is here to help in that regard.  You'll find information and links to the new Resident Evil Escape Experience, two local haunted attractions with some romantic themes between the screams, the NerdNightOut music and comedy show, more films in the PIFF After Dark Series and the upcoming Eat Your Heart Out Film Festival!

But, if you want to see what is coming up in the rest of February, as well as throughout 2017, visit the Horror Calendar, with updates on Crypticon Seattle, The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival, and a stage production of The Addams Family coming in June!
