Monster-Mania Con March 14, 2015 Write Up


Written By: Richard Roy, Master Of GBNJ Interwebs

After a pretty busy day and night of investigations and eliminations on Friday, March 13, 2015 we received a call from the Cherry Hill Crowne Plaza Hotel. Apparently monsters had descended upon there hotel for a Monster-Mania convention. Other calls were coming from hotel guests about unexplainable phenomena within the hotel’s hallways.

GBNJ personnel Greg McHughAndrew GantTom Gebhardt, and young Venkman headed to Edge City to see what was exactly going on. As we already knew the con was in full force. ‘Monsters’ in this case was more about the ‘force’ fans exert from their favorite TV shows and movies.

What GBNJ personnel wasn’t expecting was a ‘shockwave’ of occult like energy (its technical) that opened an inter dimensional rift allowing an ancient Sumerian god and a 16th Century medieval tyrant and sorcerer to appear. As the con is horror themed in nature people were very unassuming. Fortunately Ghostbusters NJ had arrived just in time to quietly and not so discreetly hang around until order could be restored from chaos.

As the guys were at the Crowne Plaza Hotel anyway they stopped to meet and greet with ghostheads at every turn. Some were even more famous then us. As the ‘job’ was being completed, the group was interviewed by Geeks & Ghosts. (Facebook)
