Time Out says

Grab your Dr. Jekyll potions, your wooden stakes and practice your best slasher-film screams because one of the country’s biggest horror conventions is back. 

Ghouls, goblins, the undead and fans of the macabre will descend on the Long Beach Convention Center’s Midsummer Scream to see some of the biggest names in the genre lead panels, sign autographs and pose for pictures—all in between shopping the best horror merch in town and taking in the grade-A blood-curdling cosplay, of course.

There’ll be hundreds of vendors on-site with spooky trinkets, antiques and collectors items, in case you’re looking to keep the gruesome vibes going long after the weekend—because as any horror fan knows, the Halloween spirit lasts all year long.
