Ohio State Reformatory’s historic building and grounds provide a perfectly eerie setting for the INKCARCERATION Festival. The massive, awe-inspiring locale is recognized as not only one of the most haunted reformatories in the country, but also as the filming location for multiple Hollywood films. The most famous of these films is the 1994 cinematic classic and IMDB highest rated movie of all time, The Shawshank Redemption, starring Hollywood legends Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins.

Once again, it will be Halloween in July at the INKCARCERATION Festival as Escape from Blood Prison makes an early appearance. The annual Halloween haunted house attraction typically runs from the end of September through early November at the Ohio State Reformatory, but this spooky experience will be open all weekend long for festival goers. Once Blood Prison takes over the reformatory, it is filled with bloodthirsty inmates waiting for victims to enter and try to make it through the facility alive.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly, based on the logistics of this event in terms of both location and the time of the year I will NOT be in attendance. I would really love to do more festivals that take place out of my own New York State location but the financials and schedule flexibility just aren’t on my side. Of course if any airline and hotel bigwigs enjoy what PiercingMetal is all about and wish to offer us complimentary lodging and airfare I’d surely be open to discussing this with them. Let’s remember that this particular website will hit its 15th year of existence this coming April but I digress. I like a number of the bands on this festival but not all of them but that is normal for most things like this. What do you readers think? Are you excited about this particular announcement? Let me know what you think down in the comments section with your thoughts and I will see you next time around.
