For The Love Of Horror is a brilliant concept from Monopoly Events which crosses a full-sized scare attraction such as those found at huge theme parks across the globe, with a horror fan convention. The result was the very first For The Love Of Horror in 2018 which received amazing reviews and which is now headed for its fourth terrifying year! Don't worry though, we are a family-friendly event so you can expect things to be toned down where necessary for the little ones... that doesn't get the rest of the family off the hook mind you...
Guests to conventions are often exclusive names to our shows, many of our guests have never before appeared at a UK convention before and this is something we feel is very special that sets us apart from other conventions. Previous FTLOH guests included Keifer Sutherland, Danny Trejo, Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Tobin Bell, Tim Curry and many, many more.
Our amazing scare attractions run from the early afternoon until later at night after the crowds leave and the building is in darkness... terrified visitors run screaming with terror from our Scare Maze right into the main arena where the amazing after party is ready and waiting for them!
Another large draw for our visitors are our amazing variation of props and set builds, FTLOH has featured some amazing props and set builds such as a huge Walking Dead Prison tower, American Werewolf in London scene, Evil Dead set, the Saw bathroom set, The Lost Boys cave set and Santa Carla billboard, Leatherfaces Lair and even the Myers house from Halloween! We also have one of the only accurate replicas of the Mos Eisley Cantina Space Bar's in the UK, which is an actual running bar!
2019 saw a huge turnout with a full Lost Boys reunion which included Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Alex Winter, Jamison Newlander, Billy Wirth, G Tom Mac, and Tim Cappello as well as a Saw Special which included Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith and Costas Mandylor in a full-sized Saw Bathroom set build. Visitors were also treated to live music on stage throughout the event from nonother than G Tom Mac and Tim Cappello! Other guests included Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Fred Decker, Spencer Wilding, and the original IT Losers Club!
Our last horror event was October 2021 where we were BACK after a hiatus due to the pandemic restrictions of 2020. We featured Rocky Horror legend Tim Curry along with Scream stars Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich and we even had a live stage fan wedding! It was a sellout show and it only put the bar even higher for our next event!
Let's not forget as well, our ever-loyal traders and the hordes of cosplayers who join us every year to make each of our events a truly memorable experience, we are sure you will agree that For the Love of Horror is truly, a very special event that is a solid staple in the Monopoly Events calendar.
Our next For the Love of Horror will take place in October 2022 and we have already announced some great guests such as William Ragsdale, and Stephen Geoffreys from Fright Night, Michael C Williams, Joshua Leonard, and Eduardo Sanchez from The Blair Witch Project, Damien Leone, David Howard Thornton, and Samantha Scaffadi from Terrifier, PJ Soles, Tommy Lee Wallace, James Jude Courtney, and Nick Castle from Halloween, Scout Taylor Compton from the Halloween remake, Danielle Harris from Halloween 4 and 5, Ira Heiden, Ken Sagoes, Jennifer Rubin, and Rodney Eastman from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and of course, the return of Tim Cappello!
