About Creep Con:
Creep Con is a month-long virtual con devoted to creepy movies and horror films on the multi-platform digital streaming network.
In honor of Creep Con and Halloween, CONtv has spotlighted 31 of their scariest films and documentaries, one for each day in October. For those who are too frightened to watch alone but still want to get in on all chills and thrills of the season, every Wednesday in October viewers can tune into a series of first-ever CONtv Livestream Viewing Parties (7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET) hosted by a cast of horror enthusiasts and experts. Providing live commentary Mystery Science Theater style and chatting with viewers during the movie, these unique interactions with giants in the genre will give viewers all the action of a real comic con – from the comfort of their own location. A full schedule of guests can be found here.
Creep Con will also boast a 24/7 virtual hub featuring many of the same experiences fans get at a real con. This includes a full programming schedule, customized and sharable GIFs, collectable items given away on the virtual prize wheel and through a digital scavenger hunt where horror hounds can put their detective skills to the test as they use clues to track down a fake CONtv movie title hidden somewhere on www.contv.com. Official rules can be found by following this link. There is a trivia section updated daily for the fans who think they know best. Finally, there are two contests for the most ambitious and creative horror fans; a pumpkin carving contest with downloadable stencils provided on the hub, and the Creep Con Cosplay Contest open to adults and kids with each winner getting one entire year free of CONtv (plus bragging rights)!
