One of the most integral parts of the experience of being a horror fan is the convention - gatherings where fans get together and spend the weekend celebrating the movies they love. But why? Why are we so dedicated to horror movies? And what is it about the horror genre that brings all of us fans together?
These are the questions superfan Kyle Kuchta recently set out to answer. Kyle attended his first horror convention at the age of 15 and has been hooked ever since. Wanting to dig deeper into convention culture, he took matters into his own hands and made a Kickstarter-funded documentary called Fantasm - interviewing fans, celebrities and convention coordinators in an attempt to shed some light on horror fan devotion, and the events that keep us all so devoted.
Check out the first clip from the documentary below, which is packed with stars including Tom Atkins and Joe Lynch. Fantasm premiered this past weekend at the Rock and Shock convention, and will be headed our way real soon. Learn more, and keep tabs, over on the Fantasm Facebook page!
