5 Must-See Mad Monster Party 2015 Guests

According to our calculations, at least 176 days remain until Halloween rolls around, which might seem like an absolute eternity to some folks. Then again, if you're the organizers of the the Mad Monster Party -- the annual convention focused on horror flicks and slasher films -- every day is probably Halloween.

Ditto for any of the horror fans, gothy types, groovy ghoulies, and creepy-looking cosplayers that will flock to the three-day event, which will haunt the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort from Friday, May 8, until Sunday, May 10.
