Spooky Empire is returning to the Wyndham Orlando Resort for the 2017 edition of their Retro horror con the weekend of April 21-23.
Spooky Empire Retro will be headlined by a roster of celebrity guests that includes the legendary actors Malcolm McDowell and Joan Cusack, along with Dee Snider, frontman of Twisted Sister and the creative force behind the cult horror classic, Strangeland.
Spooky Empire is kicking off next month by bringing in celebrities from the worlds of horror, music, and wrestling to Orlando the weekend of December 2-4, 2016.
The event was originally scheduled to take place in October, but Hurricane Matthew changed that plan.
Spooky Empire regrouped, and now are ready to put on an incredible show at the Orange County Convention Center, with many of the same guests who were scheduled for the original event, along with new ones.
Last month, we told you about all the great horror stars and other guests that would be at the annual Spooky Empire show in Orlando. Can you believe the line-up has gotten even more amazing?
Who should you be getting excited about? How about “Weird Al” Yankovic himself! His comedy concerts sell out, but you can meet him with admission to Spooky Empire.
