Our return to in-person celebrations, The Hellmouth Convention in June 2022

The Hellmouth Con Happening 2022

Our return to in-person celebrations, The Hellmouth Convention (June 3-5, 2022), is a weekend adventure with a twofold mission: We aim to bridge the gap between beloved works and fans by connecting talented individuals with those who admire them while harnessing the power of fandom to raise funds for worthwhile 501c3 organizations.

We will again offer Q&As, panels, cosplay contests, behind-the-scenes explorations, and frank discussions about current events and how they relate to our favorite fictions. In 2022, we will continue our longstanding tradition of providing intimate in-person fan experiences and offering opportunities for meetings between talent and attendees.

Proceeds from The Hellmouth Convention will go to two organizations with a proven record of providing care for our local community:

  • The Los Angeles LGBT Center has led the fight to protect vulnerable members of the LGBT+ community by providing programs for housing, medical care, advocacy, community, and educations since 1969.
  • The Al Wooten Jr. Youth Center creates a safe and nurturing environment within a community in crisis by providing free after-school and low-cost summer programs for children in grades 3-12. Funds raised will go directly to the Center’s Ron Glass Memorial Scholarship.

For the past fourteen years our organization has created opportunities for fans to appreciate and learn from our talented Guests while providing a chance for these honored actors, writers, and behind-the-scenes crew to discover the many ways in which their work has changed, affected, and influenced lives.

Get Involved with Juliet Landau’s Vampire Documentary

Juliet-Landau-APATU-w-Joss

It’s been talked about for months, and now it begins.

Juliet Landau has officially started the Indiegogo campaign for her documentary A Place Among The Undead this morning. The documentary takes a look at vampires in popular culture, from Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and beyond.  A Place Among The Undead  is a “first of its kind” in many ways. It gathers the Who’s Who of the genre, never seen before together in one film. It provides a rare perspective…  an insiders’ view into the vampire phenomenon.

Juliet Landau and Gary Oldman 2015Juliet Landau and Anne RiceThe list of people interviewed is very impressive; from Gary Oldman (Dracula), Tim Burton (Dark Shadows, Ed Wood), Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire), Anne Rice (Interview With the Vampire) and Caroline Munro (Dracula 1972 AD) to David Greenwalt (Angel), Charlaine Harris (True Blood) and Joss Whedon.
