The Monster Marketplace

Join the Flint Horror Collective for a day of freaky fun for the whole family.

The Monster Marketplace will have celebrity guests, vendors of the weird and wonderful, short films to tingle the spine, costume contests to set your nightmares afire, and the evening will end with a haunting performance from Lords of October in our film and performance room.

Heck, we even have an afteraparty planned!

This is a one day celebration of all things horror and Halloween. A day to let the little monsters roam with our inner monsters and a chance to meet fellow fans and to find that perfect art piece or collectible you’ve been desperate to have.

Our Guests Are –

TOM SULLIVAN – Artist and Make-up FX artist behind EVIL DEAD

SON OF GHOUL – Beloved horror host

JOHN E.L. TENNEY – Celebrated paranormal investigator and lecturer

MARK BLOODWORTH – Artist who has worked on DEADWORLD and Clive Barker’s HELLRAISER comics

JASON MOORE – Artist who has worked on BATMAN – HAUNTED GOTHAM among other work

We’ll have an Adult and Children’s costume contest in the later afternoon so come as your favorite monster, creature, or whatever your heart desires to win some amazing prizes.

The evening will end with a performance from Lords of October, a gruesome foursome that will send shivers down your spine in all the best of ways.

We have so much fun planned it’d take too large of a headstone to put it all down but trust us when we say that this will be the most fun you’ll have, above or below ground.

The Monster Marketplace is only FIVE DOLLARS and we hope to see you all there.
