Fan Expo 2014: Rue Morgue Festival of Fear at the Expo
Every year, Fan Expo Canada plays host to the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear, a component of the four day expo devoted to lovers of the horror genre. Fan Expo 2014 saw the return of the iconic festival, with a prime placement away from the sci-fi and comic activities, giving it its own identify and place within the convention itself.
Located in the North Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the Festival of Fear provides an opportunity for vendors, cosplayers, visiting guests and other organizations to mix and mingle with like minded crowds. The area was host to autograph signings with horror genre icons such as Robert Englund, Julian Richings and Heather Langenkamp. It was often frequented by folks such as Ted Raimi and Michael Rooker, and also played host to live activities such as body painting, tattooing and make-up design.
This year, we put a spotlight on the horror genre within the massive expo. While it has always attracted crowds every year, it never got the prominent spotlight as it got this year. Take a look at our gallery below highlighting moments within the Festival of Fear.
