Days Of The Dead The fan convention where horror comes to party! With yearly shows in Atlanta, , Indianapolis, Las Vegas, and Chicago! 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).
(614)

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 actor and personality Joe Bob Briggs, to the guest roster for DAYS OF THE DEAD: ATLANTA, happening FEBRUARY 26-28 2021 at the SHERATON ATLANTA

John Bloom, best known as his alter ego, β€œJoe Bob Briggs,” is a nationally syndicated β€œdrive-in movie critic” whose wisecracking take on B-movies was featured on two long-running late-night television shows, first on The Movie Channel and then on TNT. That tradition continues with his latest series, The Last Drive-In, currently featured on AMC’s Shudder streaming platform.
Briggs is also a successful investigative journalist, actor, and author. His nine books include the true-crime classic Evidence of Love (1984), Profoundly Disturbing: Shocking Movies that Changed History (2003) and, most recently, Eccentric Orbits: The Iridium Story (2016).
Briggs has been a finalist for the National Magazine Award three times and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize by United Press International for his eyewitness coverage of 9/11. He has appeared in several movies, including Casino, Face/Off, and Great Balls of Fire, and was a special commentator for The Daily Show for two years. He toured with a one-man show, Joe Bob Dead in Concert, and continues to be a regular host and Master of Ceremonies at film festivals and exploitation film conventions. Joe Bob is currently touring with his critically acclaimed comedy lecture β€œHow Rednecks Saved Hollywood,” a one-man multi-media presentation that traces the entire history of the redneck, as told through movies, from 16th-century Scotland to the present.
Born in Dallas, he grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas, and attended Vanderbilt University on the Grantland Rice scholarship for sportswriters. He was an award-winning columnist and reporter for the Dallas Times Herald and Texas Monthly prior to his performing career, which has included stand-up comedy, one-man shows at venues like the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, and dozens of guest appearances on both television and radio, including The Tonight Show, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, and The Diane Rehm Show on National Public Radio. He has also continued to write for newspapers and magazines, including stints for Rolling Stone, Playboy, Talk and The Village Voice – all while hosting Joe Bob’s Drive-In Theater for eleven years on The Movie Channel and MonsterVision for five years on TNT. During the course of his hosting career, Briggs has executive-produced 20,000 hours of television and become the leading authority on exploitation and genre films.
In addition to his internet-breaking return to horror hosting on Shudder’s The Last Drive-In, he is currently a columnist for Taki’s Magazine, where his satirical writings are celebrated by both conservatives and liberalsβ€” while simultaneously being attacked by both conservatives and liberalsβ€” making him one of the few journalists welcomed by most groups, no matter where they rest on the political spectrum. He believes that humor is the best antidote to sectionalism, partisanship and hatred.

From Fantasm Media:
We know what you are thinking... "Another Romero issue?" Yep. Our publisher Brian Steward went to Pittsburgh last year to work on some of the documentaries included in the new Dawn of the Dead box set from UK distributor Second Sight. With that amazing release, it seemed like a perfect time to do a special one-off issue all about Dawn. But as we began the project, like you, knee deep in a pandemic, it occurred to us that George's voice was louder than ever.
In this issue we take a look at his films through the lens of the current political climate and pandemic. A world where politics are the daily news drug and your neighbor, like a zombie, could kill you if you are exposed.
In new interviews with John Russo, co-writer of Night of the Living Dead; Lori Cardille, Day of the Dead's Sara; Eugene Clark, "Big Daddy" from Land of the Dead; Lyn Lowery, The Crazies' Kathy and Suzanne Desrocher Romero, president of G.A.R.F., The George A. Romero Foundation, we look at George's legacy and his voice against today's landscape.
We've also gone deep into the Fantasm Media Vault and pulled out two UNPUBLISHED feature-length interviews with Scott Reiniger and David Emge, Dawn of the Dead's Roger and Stephen respectively.
Other features in this issue include Dawn of the Dead Zombie, Ralph Langer's photos, a look at the cultural impact of Dawn against 1979's cinematic landscape, an examination of Land of the Dead's class system and how it was so prophetic and telling of today's pandemic. We also look at Romero's lesser-known masterpiece, The Crazies, his film literally about a viral pandemic and quarantine! All this and more to be revealed!
Additionally, this issue includes something very SPECIAL. An exclusive song download! "The Zombie Stomp," an original Romero Zombie themed song by Mark Cooper, one of the Zombies from Dawn of the Dead! It's a classic rock track in the vein of Buckner and Garcia or early Alice Cooper.
As an added BONUS, every Pre-order will include an EXCLUSIVE trading card.
* Expected to ship on or around January 18, 2021
