Is Seattle the new horror capital?

As Warning Signs prepares for Red, White and Dead on Saturday, a question came to mind: Is Seattle becoming the new capital of horror?

The upcoming zombie walk will attempt to recapture the Guinness World Record for a zombie horde. A few weeks ago, Seattle hosted Crypticon. (Warning Signs wasn't able to attend, mostly because we had recently relocated from South Dakota.) Two October events will only add to the Emerald City's claims as the nation's top town for terror.

Opening October 2, the Experience Music Project/ Science Fiction Museum will present "Can't Look Away: The Lure of the Horror Film." The exhibit will include memorabilia such as the axe used by Jack Nicholson in "The Shining" and pages from the "Night of the Living Dead" script.

Later that month, Seattle gets taken over by zombies again for ZomBcon 2011, Oct. 21-23. Guests include Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Rose McGowan, Jonathan Mayberry and TOM SAVINI!

To say that this is exciting is an understatement. Warning Sign will (hopefully) have coverage of the EMP exhibit and ZomBcon. Until then, we will be at Red, White and Dead.
