If you're like me, November First is a letdown. The high of Halloween behind us, Horror Fans have only to look forward to the Sappiest Time of the Year. A season of glad tidings, peace on Earth and few spooky offerings as everyone celebrates Christmas (or the "war upon it" if you watch Fox News).
But fear not, Horror Fans in the Pacific Northwest! The First Annual Living Dead Horror Convention happens November 13 through 15, giving us another chance to spread horrid tidings and creepy cheer.
And, I'm kicking off my reporting of this convention with the most appropriate guest of all (as the convention starts on Friday the 13th). The first Final Girl, and Jason's first official kill, Adrianne King, will be attending the festival. Currently a wine maker in the great Northwest, Adrianne survived Mrs. Voorhees in the classic original, only to be Jason's first confirmed kill in the the sequel. Talking red wines with Ms. King will take special meanings for fans!
Yeah, talk about clear water all you want, I've been rotting here
for a while!
More information can be found at The Living Dead Horror Convention Site, or Ms. King's Official Site. And check back to The Shadow Over Portland tomorrow, and I'll spotlight another guest at Portland's First Horror Convention.
