It might not be Halloween yet, but for horror fans this three-day festival will feel a little like a holiday weekend. Crypticon has returned to celebrate all the things that freak and gross people out with celebrity talks, workshops, film screenings, dance nights, vendors, and party rooms. Stars coming to town include Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween alumni, former Tim Burton muse Lisa Marie, and Vern Troyer. Come with questions, and, if you want, come in costume. Tickets and more info can be found at www.crypticonminneapolis.com.
