Noon - 9PM
We are thrilled to be partnering with the Ennis Center for Children Inc. of Flint and Genesee County to help raise money for their arts programs. We will be accepting donations throughout the year at our events and 100% of all donations will go to the Fostering Arts programs at the center.
We want to show your short film!
We are looking for short films that are under one hour to show at the Monster Marketplace. This isn't a film festival and there are no prizes but we'd love to show your work to our fans.
We are looking for DVDs or digital files. These films are strictly for use at the Marketplace and FHC sanctioned events. We will never charge people to see these films on their own and will never post them online for others to download or watch. We just want to showcase some amazing short films for our fans.
We are also looking for horror trailers. Have a film OVER an hour long but have a trailer under five minutes then we'd love to take a look and see if we can show it between movies!
Submissions are due by August 27th.
Interested? Send us an email and we'll give you the low-down - email@example.com

OCTOBER 22, 2015
Join the Flint Horror Collective on Thursday, October 22 for a one of a kind showing of Dario Argento's classic thriller TENEBRAE. This will be the very first public viewing of the film since being newly remastered by the legendary Synapse Films in anticipation of its release on Blu Ray.
Considered one of the best of Argento's films, this is one of the finest examples of the Italian Giallo subgenre and features a taut mystery, over the top violence, and a score by genre favorites Goblin.
This showing of TENEBRAE is FREE as an early Halloween gift from the ghouls with the Flint Horror Collective and we are thrilled to be able to present it to all of you. This event is also a fundraiser for Mott Community College's Black and Gold Productions film club and they will be accepting donations at the entry. The FHC will also be accepting donations for any of you that want to help support future events like this from the ghoul crew.
This event will be held at Mott Community College in the Mott Memorial Building and will be in the recital hall. Seating is limited so please make plans accordingly for this amazing free show.
Please join the Flint Horror Collective’s Ghoul Crew for this night of Italian terror and let’s celebrate Halloween a little early together.
This event wouldn't be possible without the help of the Media Arts & Entertainment Technology Program at Mott Community College and Black and Gold Productions.

BEYOND THE BOOK
Saturday, April 11, 2015
Flint Public Library - 1026 East Kearsley Street, Flint, MI 48503
2PM – 4PM
Join the Ghoul Crew as they welcome some of the area’s best horror authors in for a discussion of the art and craft of writing and specifically writing horror. We’ll welcome authors Paul Counelis, Roxanne Rhoads, MontiLee Stormer, Peggy Christie, and Sean M. Davis for a fun and informal panel about what it’s like to write the stories that send chills down your spine. This will be a moderated discussion about the craft, promotion, and world of writing and publishing with time at the end for questions and an opportunity to meet and speak to all of the authors and learn more about their work.
Join us for an afternoon of chilling tales of the world beyond the book and the inspirations behind the things that go bump in the night.
THE GHOUL CAST
One of our new endeavors will be a podcast we will do periodically. We don't have any intention on being the same thing that others are, we're too weird for that, but we have some fun plans. We just put our first episode up, check it out. Check our links to the Ghoul Cast page on the site to download episodes.
THANK YOU FOR FOUR GREAT YEARS!
Four years ago a handful of friends joined in a dream of doing a horror convention in Flint, Michigan. We knew how much we loved horror movies and all things weird and wonderful and knew that we weren’t alone in our interests. We knew there were others. For four years several of us have worked as hard as we could to bring the best one day horror convention possible to this area and to all of you and I think we have done a pretty damned good job of that. Over four years we have met amazing people, made fantastic friends, have brought international horror films and horror celebrities into town and have helped to keep this area weird and to keep horror fun and affordable for the fans. We never chose the easiest way to do things but we chose the way that we thought and still believe was best. This has never been easy but we wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
Over time though dreams change or they die and that changing is never a joyful thing but it is a necessary thing to keep it alive.
We are very sorry to announce that there will be no Flint Horror Convention in 2015. We have looked at things and feel it’s time to pull back and change our focus and direction and to put the convention away indefinitely. I won’t say that we’ll never do another convention because we all love doing them, but for now, and for the indefinite future the convention is on hiatus. This has not been an easy decision, and it’s one we are still dealing with but it’s the right one and we hope you’ll understand. This doesn’t mean the end of the Ghoul Crew though. Under the banner of the FLINT HORROR COLLECTIVE we still plan to create diabolical little shows in the Flint area from time to time to keep your blood chilled and the scares alive. We are working on what comes next but believe me as soon as we are ready we’ll let you all know.
We cannot thank all of you enough. Those of you that have been to all four years, who have supported us from afar, those of you that vended with us, those of you that were guests, and those of you who just liked the idea of another convention on the circuit we thank you. We truly could not have done any of it without all of you. We hope that you’ll still hang around to see what we’re up to and if it strikes a chord we hope you’ll still support our future endeavors. For all of us behind the scenes this has never been about money, or ‘fame’, or about hanging out with celebrities. It has always been about the fans and doing something fun and inexpensive for all of you. From the very bottom of our hearts we thank you and ask you to come with us as we continue to create fun and inexpensive horror events and we’ll see where the future leads.
If there is one last thing we have to offer you, it’s that you must, must MUST believe in your dreams and fuel them. This convention began as a dream and has become something none of us could have imagined. If we have done anything over our four years we hope if nothing else we reminded you that you can do anything if you are willing to work for it and have the support of people you love and respect around you.
