Should you be hosting, or know of, an event that would interest my readers, email me at shadowoverportland@live.com and I'll include in on the Horror Calendar and future updates.  Remember, I cast a wide web, including sci fi/ fantasy films, as well as some action films.  And I do not charge for listing your event on the site.

And, as always, should you attend any of these events, mention to the organizers you read about it at The Shadow Over Portland!!
