Well, they had to skip a year because Keith Van Sickle, our benevolent and awesome host, had a stroke. And then another stroke. And then another stroke. But sometimes, thankfully, death is a tease, and Keith chose not to run the festival from the grave. I’m sure most of you know, there’s no room to type effectively inside a coffin. Even the expensive ones. Which, by the way, is why the Ukrainian Vampire Defense Administration added “Social Networking” to the list of useful weapons to use against Vampires. I’m so happy Keith is still with us after giving us such a scare. I reckon that’s his style though. 🙂
This year, I will be there again, and I’ll be there for Director Patrick Rea’s screenings, the Slash and Bash Short Film Contest, the screening of Bonnie and Clyde VS. Dracula (and Q&A with the filmmakers), and all the screenings, indoor and out!
Did we mention it’s FREE? Because it’s FREE. Which frees up some funds to get a room and throw a party.
You can check out the Slash and Bash schedule here, where you can get all the details, but what I wanted to make you aware of, is Slash and Bash and the KC Horror Club is bringing you Topeka’s very first ZOMBIE WALK!!
Here’s the when and the where…
Friday, June 24, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Participation requires a donation of FIVE non perishable food items, or a donation of five dollars (or more if you want to).
All food and monetary proceeds will benefit Topeka’s “Let’s Help.” An organization “committed to working with individuals and families so that the cycle of poverty is broken and self-sufficiency is attained.”
