If you have any questions regarding HorrorHound Weekend, or any other events taking place during this exciting weekend - please email us at and we will post your questions (with answers) right here!

What is HorrorHound Weekend?
HorrorHound Magazine presents a series of mid-west Horror Conventions based out of Indianapolis, Indiana, Columbus, Ohio and Cincinnati, Ohio! Fans will be able to meet some of the biggest icons in horror history (photo ops and autograph sessions) while shopping around for some of the newest or rarest classic horror toys, t-shirts, posters, displays, dvds, masks and other assorted goodies. Movie premieres and screenings will be included with every show, as well as special celebrity panels, and so much more. You can also stop by and say hi to the HorrorHound staff, all while picking up the latest issue. HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati takes place at the Crowne Plaza Cincinnati North, which also hosts the Coco Keys indoor water resort (with seperate admission), making this one of the coolest locations possible for such an event! More surprises are in store - to help make this the biggest and most exciting horror event the mid-west can remember. Check back often for updates and information!
Are Autographs Free?
Unfortunately, no. The main reason the celebrities are doing the convention (instead of actual film work or time off to spend with their family) is because of the financial return these shows deliver. Some celebrities attending may sign for free, but nothing is guaranteed.
How much are Autographs?
Prior to the show, HorrorHound has no way of knowing what autograph pricing will be. The value is chosen by the individual talent. Generally pricing is set at $15-25. If knowing these prices are extremely important, check out your local horror chat board and see if anyone has past history with specific guests.
Are autographs included in the ticket price?
NO! Prices are decided by the celebrity. See above.
Should I rely on the Celebrity to have items to sign?
Most guests should carry a number of photographs or in some cases posters and other odd memorabilia (for a price). DO NOT rely on this however, as everybody attending the show for the sole purpose of autographs should at least bring one item from home to get signed.
Are all Celebrities guarenteed to be in attendance?
NO! Celebrities are contracted to attend all three days of the show, however, due to emergencies, illness or sudden scheduling conflicts relating to filming, celebrities are known to cancel out of conventions. The promoters try to avoid booking stars with potential conflicts, however sometimes these events are unavoidable. We suggest frequent visits to the event website to keep track of who is coming, and isn't. DO NOT PURCHASE tickets for one guest as refunds will not be given due to a guest cancelation.
Are Photographs Allowed?
Unless the celebrity says otherwise, photographs of the celebrities (and in cases, you with the celebrity) are perfectly acceptible. We do ask that you treat the talent with respect in this regard. Note that no video-recording is allowed during the convention without the express written concent of the HorrorHound Weekend promoters and the talent involved.
I want to wait until the weekend of the show to buy tickets, is that ok?
Absolutely. We will have staff ready at the front door handling ticket sales, but keep in mind: Discounted tickets are only available online for a limited time. The price WILL increase. Also, with pre-sales doing so well, ticket prices may adjust even more just prior to the show or at the door. Do not expect the online price to reflect prices at the door.
Are hotel rooms still available?
The last seven HorrorHound Weekend event hotels sold out months prior to the event. Click on the hotel link above to reserve your room today! As rooms sell out, we will do our best to include all neighboring hotel information possible to give fans a shot at staying nearby!
I have a small child, do I have to buy her a ticket?
NO! All children 12 and under are allowed entry into HorrorHound Weekend Cincinnati for free. Just make sure that they are well watched and aren't afraid of the boogey man!
What days and times with Celebrity guests be signing?
Unless it is otherwise noted, every guest at HorrorHound Weekend will be signing all three days of the show, taking time off only for food breaks, Q&A sessions being planned during the weekend and personal time-outs. If any guest is scheduled to have a lighter schedule during the weekend, it will be posted clearly on the website homepage or guest page.
Can I order an event shirt if I do not attend HorrorHound Weekend?
Yes (when available). We have decided to ship event shirts prior to the convention to keep the workload of our volunteers down to a minimum - while at the same time contending against the constant numbers of shirts that are not picked up at the event. Shirts will still be available at the event in limited numbers for purchase.
Are there really going to be THAT many fans attending HorrorHound Weekend?
As with any plan, everything is tentative, but pre-sale tickets suggest that the turn-out for the weekend show will be huge, so plan accordingly. Expect lines, crowds and we suggest picking up early-admission tickets if you wish to get some important matters done before the larger crowds enter the show. If ticket sales are so strong, we risk overloading our event against fire hazard laws, we will shut down ticket sales - just another reason to consider pre-purchasing. Our Indianapolis events boast between 8,000-10,000 attendees, while Cincinnati has a range of 3,000-5,000 and growing.
Will I be able to buy the new issue of HorrorHound Magazine at HHW?
Definitely. Our staff will be on hand with the latest issue, rare back issues and a number of HorrorHound related merchandise. On top of this, a special limited edition issue of HorrorHound is produced for every convention and includes convention-related covers, content and pull-out posters – available for purchase at the show.
Is drinking allowed in the Convention?
Only staff and vendors will be allowed to drink inside the actual convention hall. The hotel features a restaurant and bar inside of the lobby and a number of local eateries which you can stop at. Drinking is allowed in the hotel, but we ask that attendees do not bring open containers within the ballrooms. When the event comes to a close, the hotel features a full bar which most vendors and celebrities may attend. It will be a good time.
Do I have to pay for admission into the Film and Q&As?
We will feature a theater inside of the hotel, showcasing some of the hottest new independent horror films, and celebrity panels. Most of these events will be free (included with the price of admission). In rare cases, an additional fee MAY be attached to a screening - but will be announced and promoted WAY in advance. As for regular events - seating is limited, so be kind and properly situate yourself in the room, be quiet and no cell phone conversations. Security will be on hand in the room at all times to ensure everyone enjoys their chance at seeing these advance screenings!
Is Coco Keys admission included with my HHW ticket purchase? (Cincinnati ONLY)
NO!!! Coco Keys is a completely different venue located within the hotel. It features tons of cool water park rides and is temperature conrolled. Anyone attending HorrorHound Weekend will receive a 50% off voucher for admission into Coco Keys. The Crowne Plaza hotel does include it's own indoor pool, which is free to anyone staying at the hotel.
