Halloween Film Star Coming To Shreveport For Geek’d Con
After having to take 2020 off, Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is back for 2021! The show's return will be August 13th-15th at the Shreveport Convention Center.
Before the pandemic, Geek'd Con had become one of the biggest pop culture events in the region. With guests like Michael Rooker, LeVar Burton, Elvira, Peter Mayhew, Chris Sarandon, and more.
For this year's Geek'd Con return, the lineup is crazy stacked. Including Alice Cooper, Jason Mewes, Peter Facinelli, Emily Swallow, and a ton more. You can see the lineup here.
Now that lineup has grown again, as the star of Rob Zombie's Halloween series, Scout Taylor Compton, has been added to the lineup. Scout played the iconic Laurie Strode in Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween II.
In addition to the Halloween franchise, Scout portrayed rock music legend Lita Ford in the film The Runaways, Fairy in the show Charmed, and Tiffany in 13 Going On 30.
Scout is probably best known as a modern day Scream Queen, having appeared in multiple horror films. In addition to her Halloween appearances, she has been in the horror films Wicked Little Things, Life Blood, April Fool's Day, Flight 750, Return To Sender, The Lurker, and more.
