This Christmas version will include the Hall of Yuletide Spirits, a dark corner of the convention center that will house mini haunts of producers of annual attractions like the Dreich Society of Ontario, the Prism Haunted House of Orange County and the Ghostwood Pasadena Manor.

There will also be celebrity appearances and meet and greets including Keith David, who has appeared in films like ‘The Thing’, ‘They Live’ and most recently Jordan Peele’s thriller ‘Nope’. And you’ll want to call home and tell everyone you’ve met ‘ET the Extra-Terrestrial’ star Henry Thomas, who also appeared in ‘Doctor Sleep’ and ‘The Haunting of Hill. House”.

More than 200 vendors are expected on deck, selling clothing, accessories, decorations, artwork and comics. There’s also a burlesque show on Friday nights and a Krampus race on Saturday and Sunday. They will screen horror-themed shorts and host panel discussions on topics including the legacy of horror classic “The Shining” and exploring the impact of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” with Sara Karloff, the daughter of Boris Karloff, who narrated the animated classic.

Tickets cost between $30 and $95 and can be purchased at midsummerscream.org.
