Also presented by Neko Squared, here you will be tasked to escape from the clutches of a horrifying and seductive demoness in an exciting escape room experience inspired by the survival horror genre. This event is 13 and over.

Vendors, guests and of course, your spooky selves will make this first HorrorFest a success. Event organizer Troy Stegner says of the event:

El Paso loooovvveeess their horror.  Every year at El Paso Comic Con we would have attendees beg us to bring in more horror guests, so it was an easy decision to start a con dedicated to the genre.  We are bringing a ton of great horror related guests, there will be Q&A panels with those guests and you can buy photo ops and autographs.  (VIP passes include one free individual photo op).  If the community supports this event, we will bring it back next year.  We will add as much horror entertainment as we can to make this event one of the premiere Horror Cons out there.  El Paso deserves nothing less.

Happy hauntings!
