Horror Fest FearCon V Coming In October

Horror Fest FearCon V

Did you know we have a horror convention here in Phoenix? On October 13, 2012 Phoenix FearCon V will present a day of horror at Ultrastar Cinemas.

Feature film

At this point, FearCon has one feature film planned. Up-and-coming director Alax Chandon’s Inbred headlines the evening. I watched the trailer, and this one is emotional, disturbing and gory. Not for the faint of heart. In other words, perfect for a horror con.


Guests at FearCon V include the princess of scream Tiffany Shepis, Kaos Funeral Cars, The Dr. Diabolic Show, and America’s favorite zombie housewives Stella and Liz.

But, we don’t go to cons just for the guests. It’s the action we’re interested in. No shorts are announced yet, but I’m sure we’ll have plenty of horror to watch. Along with the films, here are the other planned activities:

  • Zombie runway fashion show
  • Zombie panel discussion with experts
  • Special FX makeup demos with Gillian Payne
  • Horror author book signings
  • Costume and scream contests
  • Vendors
  • Awards ceremony
  • Concert

Details are still a bit hazy. We’ll keep you posted as new info is released. For now, just be happy that horror is alive and well in Phoenix.


FearCon V needs volunteers and financial contributors. Please help out any way you can. I am volunteering on event day and beforehand.

  1. Please be so kind as to update the venue for this event. We have changed locations of the Phoenix FearCON V to the Ultra Star Cinemas in Scottsdale since the MadCap is being repaired and won’t be ready in time for our event. More information is available at the official website of the FearCON. http://www.phoenixfearcon.com
    Thank you,
