So bring you camera and dress-up yourself if you want… but be warned, if your costume is TOO realistic, Cassie just may have to put you down.

We’ll also have representatives from Venom Energy on hand distributing samples of Venom; just what every slasher-hunter needs to keep their energy up during a hard-fought battle with vicious psychopaths.
