There's no better way to shake off the stress of the workweek than mingling with a mob of walking corpses. Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors features movie screenings and Q&As with "Godfather of Gore" Herschell Gordon Lewis and "The Evil Dead" creator Sam Raimi plus fanboy vendor booths, a prop auction, a vampy fashion show, a zombie walk and an "art ghoullery" filled with gruesome work by masters of the genre like Clive Barker. With wandering crowds and stimulus overload, Fangoria is a little like Coachella but with less heatstroke and more dismembered rubber limbs. Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St., L.A. Fri.-Sun. $20-$25 per day. www.fangoria.com.
