Some people love a good horror movie. There is nothing better than sitting on the edge of your seat -- with an elevated heart rate -- waiting for the next good scare to make you jump out of your seat.
Fans of those types of movies will have a chance to meet the stars of some of those films. The first ever Motor City Legacy horror convention will be this weekend at the Sheraton in Romulus, MI. The horror con will run Friday, March 18th through Sunday, March 20th.
There will be celebrities, as well as panels, many vendors, film screenings, and of course you are encouraged to dress as your favorite horror movie character. There will also be a kids costume party and a special makeup effects contest.
