It's already been that long? This year marks the 40th anniversary of Halloween, one of the longest-enduring horror franchises to grace the big screen. Perhaps the most exciting marker of this occasion is the newly-rebooted sequel coming on October 19th. This special event might be number two on the list.

Trancas International Films and HorrorHound Ltd. have joined forces on H40: 40 Years of Terror, which is being billed as the biggest Halloween convention to date. The event will take place from October 12th through the 14th at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California, just ahead of the new film's highly-anticipated release.

The official press release promises celebrity guests from all 11 films in the franchise as well as a number of special events including a filming location tour, special gallery offerings, cast Q&As, exclusive merchandise offerings, and professional photo opportunities.

We don't yet have any information on ordering tickets, pricing, or VIP packages, but all of these details are expected to be revealed within the month. Keep an eye on the official website as well as the event's Facebook page for announcements on when tickets will be available.

In the meantime, get yourself hyped by watching that chilling Halloween trailer one more time and start planning your cross-country trip to this convention. You won't want to miss it.
