Beware of zombies next weekend, Bostonians.

Walker Stalker Con is heading for the Hub’s Westin Boston Waterfront hotel on June 13, and bringing more than a dozen cast members of “The Walking Dead’’ (and plenty of fans) with it.

“The Walking Dead’’ actors Jon Bernthal (Shane), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), and Chad Coleman (Tyreese), are among the convention’s confirmed guests.

This will be the third installment of the three-day zombie-and-horror-themed meet-up, organized by a pair of men named James Frazier and Eric Nordhoff who host a “Walking Dead’’ podcast called “The Walker Stalkers.’’

“Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention,’’ the convention’s website reads. “It is a fan meet-up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they’ve had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers!’’


Weekend events will include a zombie bash party on Friday the 13th (spooky), a Saturday screening of “The Boondock Saints’’ in honor of the film’s 15th anniversary (no zombies in this flick), and a selection of panel discussions featuring folks like “The Walking Dead’’ star Jon Bernthal and “Boondock Saints’’ star Sean Patrick Flannery.

Three-day general admission tickets are available for $90, Saturday and Sunday two-day general admission tickets will run you $60, and single day tickets range from $30 (Friday) to $40 (Saturday or Sunday). Walker Stalker Con is also selling VIP packages for the zombie-loving high roller ($600 or $1,200).

Tickets will be sold separately for the “Boondock Saints’’ screening.
