For The Love Of Horror is a brilliant new 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 was received amazing reviews and is now headed for its second 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. 2018 FTLOH guests included Machete aka Danny Trejo, Michael Myers himself, Tyler Mane, Thriller star Ola Ray, the face of Pazuzu in The Exorcist, Eileen Dietz and many, many more.
Our amazing scare attractions ran from the early afternoon until later at night after the crowds had left and the building was in darkness... terrified visitors ran screaming with terror from our Scare Maze while others got their Rick Grimes on in our Zombie Shootout area.
Another large draw for our visitors are our amazing variation of props and set builds, FTLOH last year featured some amazing props and set builds such as a huge Walking Dead Prison tower, American Werewolf in London scene, Evil Dead scene and more, on top of this were continuous displays of make-up and guests panels and other entertainment including a very special reenactment of Michael Jacksons Thriller starring Ola Ray herself! 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!
Add to all this, our ever loyal traders and cosplayers who join us every year to make each of our events a truly memorable experience, and you have a very special event that will now be a staple in the Monopoly Events calendar.
