The 4th annual Haunted Screams Expo horror convention returned to Hampton, Virginia this past weekend, bringing another killer lineup of special guest genre icons to this year’s event, in addition to all the other festivities that lick off the Halloween season for the region, and we were there to capture all of the excitement in exclusive photos and video footage.

Graham, and Darcy Demoss; House of 1,000 Corpses co-stars Walter Phelan (Dr. Satan) and Robert Mukes (Rufus); plus America Olivo of Friday the 13th (2009); Brett Wagner, who played Leatherface in early scenes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003); Nick King, who played Bughuul in the Sinister films; Kyle Strauts (The Pedator, Prey); Pancho Moler (31, 3 From Hell, Candy Corn); and Jonathan Breck, who played The Creeper in three Jeepers Creepers films.
