Twice a year, the New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival takes place at the Showboat in Atlantic City and their Spring show is coming up next week.

The horror convention always has a top-notch guest list and knows how to keep it “classic horror” but also appeals to others that might not be into horror as much as others.

The majority of the celebrity guests that appear are either actual horror movie actors/actresses or have starred in at least one horror-like film.
