Crypticon is a horror-oriented media[1] event held annually in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Seattle, Washington, and Kansas City, Missouri. Guests have included authors, actors, directors, producers, and writers from classic and upcoming horror titles.

Overview[edit]

Crypticon is composed of three areas open to the general public:

  • The Dealers' Area, which is made up primarily of vendors selling horror-themed merchandise and booths advertising films, and guests signing and meeting fans.
  • The Auditorium, where panels and speeches are given for the duration of the convention, including exclusive interviews with the guests.
  • And The Screening Rooms, where new independent and mainstream horror films are screened via digital projection.
