Scare Up Some Fun at The Horror Con of Mississippi in Tupelo July 22–23

The Horror Con of Mississippi takes place this weekend at the Tupelo Furniture Market from July 22–23 featuring screenings of cult classics, horror icons, and even a zombie prom.

Saturday kicks off at 10 am with a showing of Night of the Living Dead at 10 am and and doesn’t slow down until midnight with a showing of the class Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The con will feature panels with actors from mainstream horror like The Walking Dead to the lesser known likes of Repo! The Genetic Opera and 1981’s Graduation Day.

The convention has a long list of celebrities appearances including Michael Berryman of The Hills Have Eyes, Bill Moseley of Repo!, and Andy Field of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location.

Some of the events planned for the weekend are Repo! and Rocky Horror sing-alongs, Weird Planet Museum, and a laser battle tag. Check out the full schedule here to see what all screenings and panels The Horror Con of Mississippi has planned. The Local Voice Ligature
