VAMPIRA SPOOKSMODEL CONTEST
Pour yourself into that little black dress and slink onto the stage for the chance to be Dark Queen of Horrorhound Weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana … March 2010! Judged by the attending horror hosts, the winner will represent Vampira throughout the weekend for each related event. Contestants will be determined by resemblance to the Goddess, saunter and scream! Send preliminary pics and bios to Jason Hignite, Event Producer at jasonhignite@yahoo.com.

AMERICAN SCARY
Michael Monahan will be screening his film American Scary, the most comprehensive Horror Host documentary to date. Following the film, Dr. Goulfinger (Monahan) will be speaking on his experiences in filmmaking and share his vast knowledge on the history of Horror Hosting. Goulfinger will be joined by a panel of other monstrous hosts to discuss the future of this unusual art form.

DO THE MONSTER MASS!
A mad monster party for Horror Hosts and V.I.P.s only! Blood and wine will be on hand as a cavalcade of creatures gather for a private tribute to the Queen of the late night airwaves. Hosts will have the chance to emerge from a recreation of Vampira’s set and do their damnedest to match her soul curdling scream! The evening culminates with the crowning of the Dark Queen of Horrorhound Weekend.

LONG LIVE VAMPIRA!
The theatre darkens and the screen alights. An image of a creepy, cobwebbed hallway comes softly into focus as a dark and distinctly feminine figure glides into the frame. All is silent until… AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

The Horror Host tribute to Vampira will be a once in a lifetime monster spooktacular you’ll have to see to believe! With never before seen footage, a host of magical items owned by the woman herself and a candlelight procession of her creaturely compatriots, it may just be the strangest thing you’ll ever see!
