On Friday March 29th 2019 at 7pm in Room 207 of the Anaheim Convention Center, HorrorBuzz is set to make it’s WonderCon debut. Eric & Amantha Ryan of the HorrorBuzz Film Team will host a panel called “HorrorBuzz.com: What is Horror?”
How do you define “horror film”? Does it have to be gory or intense? Must it have a monstrous creature? Can it be quiet and subtle or should it make jump out of your seat? Does it even have to be scary? Everybody has a different opinion and our panel of experts are ready to share theirs as they attempt to answer the question “What is Horror?”
The panel features Film Threat founder Chris Gore, Midsummer Scream Creative Director Rick West, Horrible Imaginings Film Festival founder/director Miguel Rodriguez, screenwriter/filmmaker Michael Varrati, actress/producer Sarah Nicklin, filmmaker/editor-in-chief at HalloweenMovies.com Sean Decker, and HorrorBuzz.com founder/editor Norm Gidney. Together they will discuss just what qualifies a movie to be a part of the horror genre.
In addition, the panel will take a look a handful of films that may not traditionally be considered horror but just might be after all. Some that may even surprise you.
Come join us and be part of the fun. Along with the HorrorBuzz panel, WonderCon features a multitude of amazing panels spanning the world of pop culture alongside an exhibit hall full of numerous publishers, film studios, TV networks, artists, collectible manufacturers and more. Badges are still available and can be purchased here.
