With two sound stages and a 225-seat theater featuring digital projection and surround sound, SUN STUDIOS of Arizona was the ideal location for FANGORIA FearCON. “I used to stand in line for Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors in L.A.,” said SUN STUDIOS CEO Darrin Ramage, who has produced and distributed horror movies for more than 20 years. “The last one was in 2009, so imagine how excited I am to be hosting FANGORIA FearCON 2016!”
