Saturday was a blast at Monsterpalooza in Burbank. The place was packed which means the people-watching was top notch. This convention has been a feast for the senses, a visual cornucopia of the beautiful and the profane. I feel like I only barely had a chance to absorb the volume of art and memorabilia on display at the Burbank Marriott, so thank Baby Satan I have one more day to romp with these bizarre creatures. I’ll be heading down to the main theater in about 30 minutes to see a selection of short Horror films sponsored by Screamfest. I was one a skeptic, but have recently come to realize how awesome a well-crafted short film can be–the best examples of which manage to convey the same level of emotion and commitment that usually only a feature length production can produce. So I’ve ingested about half of a powerful pot brownie and I’m ready to get my scare on.
Check back in tomorrow for a recap of tonight’s shorts and Sunday’s highlights. Goodnight!
