Sinister Creature Con, a convention celebrating all things horror, spookily manifested at the Scottish Rite Center in Sacramento, this past weekend of July 16th, 2018. Boasting a lineup of visiting horror icons such as Linda Blair from The Exorcist, and Michael Berryman from The Hills Have Eyes, the convention attracted a diverse crowd of fans in both taste and age. I spotted metalheads wearing patch-covered battle vests, cosplayers stomping around in Predator and Michael Meyers outfits, and older fans bringing along their kids to browse the spooky artwork and toys on display. Food vendors, panel discussions, cosplay contests, and video games helped to round out the event.
