The season for scare venues like haunted hayrides, corn mazes, and theme park horror events will soon be in full swing. The announcements from these venues have been titillating and have continued to grow excitement for this year’s Halloween scare season.

However, if you cannot two months to get your scare fix, the awesome folks at Scare LA have put together an event this weekend that is dedicated to celebrating everything about Halloween. From horror filmmaker announcements, gore-industry panels, and haunt locations to pumpkin carving workshops, this weekend convention will have it all.

You can cruise on over to their site (Scare LA) to get info on the event and buy tickets (almost sold out). If you cannot make it before it ends at 7pm tonight, then head over on Sunday (open 11am to 6pm) where Universal Halloween Horror Nights creative and art directors John Murdy and Chris Williams will be discussing the process of creating scare mazes. This panel (starts at 1pm) will also feature an exclusive maze announcement for Universal Hollywood’s event.

Also, for an extra $5, you can experience Urban Death, which is a 22-minute attraction organized by Zombie Joe’s Underground Theater Group. This experience is a great way to get a scare fix that will hold you over until more local events open their doors.

If you cannot make it, check us out on Twitter as we will be live-tweeting from the HHN panel and other parts of the event!
