Saturday Night Fright feature concludes new horror inspired convention at Sudbury Indie Cinema


The first annual Sudbury Indie Creature Kon (SICK) took over Sudbury Indie Cinema on Friday and Saturday.

The two-day horror-inspired convention, running Sept. 16-17, featured vendors, artists, a cosplay contest, panels and interviews with horror movie and game insiders along with a video game tournament on the big screen hosted by Northern Gaming Events.

Organizers said the north has an interest in horror, sci-fi and all things "nerd" and the indie cimena is the perfect place to showcase it.

"We were looking to have something that was an extravagant horror event because, I myself am in film making and I love horror movies and we thought what a perfect venue this was. So having an independent theatre we're able to throw on events like this. I really click with the community and give them what they're looking for and horror and sci-fi and all things nerd was what everybody wanted, so we decided that's what we were going to go with," Douglas Ewen, one of the SICK organizers, told CTV News.

SICK wrapped up with a Saturday Night Fright feature.

Organizers said they are hoping to make this an annual event for years to come.
