BURBANK — Gore, blood and zombies reigned at this year's Weekend of Horrors, headlined by some of the entertainment industry's more terrifying stars.
Hundreds of horror film fans attended Creation Entertainment's three-day fright fest at the Burbank Marriott; vendors displayed their dark-themed artwork and sold scare-genre merchandise, including zombie jerky.
While the vendors provided plenty of entertainment for ticketholders, fans were eager to see the event's high-profile celebrities, including horror film director Clive Barker, cast members from the cable show "True Blood" and "Army of Darkness," and "Burn Notice" star Bruce Campbell.
Celebrities fielded questions from fans and signed autographs.
Campbell asked some of his devotees to show off tattoos that they had gotten in honor of his films.
"If you don't support creative cinema or creative forms of entertainment, they will go away," he told fans. "You have a lot of power. If you don't like the way movies are going out there, just don't go see them."
