Days Of The Dead

Days Of The Dead The fan convention where horror comes to party! With yearly shows in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Chicago!
(624)

DAYS OF THE DEAD is a by the fans, for the fans, convention which had its inaugural show July 1st - 3rd, 2011, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, located in Indianapolis, IN, and has since expanded into a total of five cities nationwide (CHICAGO, INDIANAPOLIS, LOUISVILLE, CHARLOTTE, and ATLANTA). DAYS OF THE DEAD's primary goal is to bring back the concept of the genre convention being a welcoming social gathering of like minded friends and fans and not just another "pay-and-go" autograph show that has become an all too common (and impersonal) experience in the convention scene. Chock full of special events tailored just for the fans, an active after hours scene of horror themed parties, and a massive guest list of the hottest celebrity guests, artists, and up and coming independent film makers, DAYS OF THE DEAD is rewriting the script and setting the bar for what a true horror convention weekend should look like.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of actress and pop culture icon, BARBARA EDEN to the guest roster for DAYS OF THE DEAD: ATLANTA, happening AUGUST 7-9 2020 at the SHERATON ATLANTA

Eden began her television career as a semiregular on The Johnny Carson Show in 1955 She also made featured appearances on shows such as The West Point Story, Highway Patrol, Private Secretary, I Love Lucy, The Millionaire, Target: The Corruptors!, Crossroads, Perry Mason, Gunsmoke, December Bride, Bachelor Father, Father Knows Best, Adventures in Paradise, The Andy Griffith Show, Cain's Hundred, Saints and Sinners, The Virginian, Slattery's People, The Rogues, and the series finale of Route 66. She guest-starred in four episodes of Burke's Law, playing different roles each time. She was an uncredited extra in the movie The Tarnished Angels with Rock Hudson, in partnership with 20th Century Fox studios. She then starred in the syndicated comedy TV series How to Marry a Millionaire. The series is based on the 1953 film of the same name.
Discovery in the Hollywood sense came when she starred in a play with James Drury. Film director Mark Robson, who later directed her in the movie From the Terrace, had come to the play and wanted her for 20th Century Fox studios. Her screen test was the Joanne Woodward role in No Down Payment (1957). Though she did not get the role, the studio gave her a contract. She did a screen test for the role of Betty Anderson in the 1957 film version of Peyton Place, but Terry Moore got the role. She had minor roles in Bailout at 43,000, Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?, and The Wayward Girl, and then became a leading lady in films and starred opposite Gary Crosby, Barry Coe, and Sal Mineo in A Private's Affair. She had a co-starring role in Flaming Star (1960), with Elvis Presley.
The following year, she played in a supporting role as Lt. Cathy Connors in Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. She starred in The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm, a George Pal-directed Cinerama film for MGM, and another Irwin Allen production for 20th Century Fox, Five Weeks in a Balloon (1962). She was the female lead in the 1962 Fox comedy Swingin' Along, starring Tommy Noonan and Peter Marshall, in their final joint screen appearance. She did a screen test with Andy Williams for the 20th Century Fox movie State Fair, but did not get the role.
Her last film for 20th Century Fox was The Yellow Canary (1963). She left Fox and began guest-starring in television shows and acting in films for MGM, Universal, and Columbia. She played supporting roles over the next few years, including The Brass Bottle and 7 Faces of Dr. Lao.

Bewitched was the number-two show on television in 1964, and following on its heels, in 1965, producer Sidney Sheldon signed Eden to star in his upcoming fantasy sitcom I Dream of Jeannie that would air on NBC. After various brunette starlets and beauty queens unsuccessfully tried out for the role, Eden was approached by Sheldon, who had seen her in The Brass Bottle and had been recommended by various colleagues. Eden played Jeannie, a beautiful genie set free from her bottle by astronaut and United States Air Force Captain (later Major) Anthony "Tony" Nelson, played by Larry Hagman.
Eden played this role for five years and 139 episodes. Additionally, in eight episodes, Eden donned a brunette wig to portray Jeannie's evil sister (also named Jeannie) who lusts after Tony Nelson, and in two episodes played Jeannie's hapless mother.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of THE KNIGHTS OF REN from STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER to the guest roster for DAYS OF THE DEAD: ATLANTA, happening AUGUST 7-9 2020 at the SHERATON ATLANTA

THE KNIGHTS OF REN consist of actors Lukaz Leong (Ap'Lek"), Ashley Beck (Ushar") Tom Rodgers (Trudgen"). Joe Kennard ("Kurak"), Anton Simpson-Tidy ("Vicrul"), and Martin Wilde ("Cardo"). This will be their first ever US convention appearance.
The Knights of Ren were a mysterious order of Force-sensitive elite warriors that followed the dark side of the Force in an age when the Sith were extinct and the Jedi Order was all but destroyed.
Although rumours had spread throughout the Unknown Regions of a group of mysterious raiders known as the Knights of Ren, they only emerged in the larger galaxy following the downfall of the Galactic Empire in 5 ABY. The six Knights, commanded by an individual known only as Ren, began scouring the galaxy for other Force-sensitives to join their ranks.
They later came under the command of Kylo Ren. Seduced by the power of the dark side, the former Ben Solo renounced the Jedi and adopted a new name in addition to the title master of the Knights of Ren, becoming Supreme Leader Snoke's disciple and a warlord of the First Order. Under Snoke's guidance, the Knights of Ren filled the vacuum left by the demise of Kylo's grandfather, Darth Vader, the last Sith Lord. Ren, who earned the nickname "Jedi Killer" by destroying the generation of Jedi trained by Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, was determined to destroy the last Jedi and fulfill his grandfather's legacy.
As the war escalated between the First Order and the Resistance after the destruction of the New Republic, Kylo Ren killed Snoke during a confrontation between his master and the Jedi apprentice Rey, and became the new Supreme Leader of the First Order. The Knights of Ren emerged from relative obscurity to act as Ren's bodyguards and enforcers, stifling opposition to his rule within the First Order and assisiting him in his hunt for Rey. However, when Ben Solo redeemed himself and Kylo Ren ceased to be, the Knights traveled to Exegol where they were killed by their former master during the Battle of Exegol
