Over at Comicmix, Rick Marshall shows us what we’re missing:

On a lighter note, I started my day sharing an elevator with Angus Scrimm, the “Tall Man” from the Phantasm horror films. Apparently, Wizard World wasn’t the only game in town this weekend, as the Flashback Weekend horror film convention was also in town for its annual get-together of fans and celebrities of the fright-film scene. This made for a particularly surreal moment later in the day when the beginning of the horror festival overlapped with the end of both a senior-age Christian meet-up and a young couple’s wedding. At one point during the day, the line that had developed for the elevators included the bridal party, a buxom, blood-covered nurse, a massive, costumed Jason Voorhees (complete with machete and severed, bloody head of Freddy Krueger) and a trio of seniors who seemed very concerned that no one else in the hallway was making a big deal about the nurse and her companion.


  1. Lessee… when I attended Heroes Con many years ago, I picked the wrong convention hotel, out by the ritzy part of town. The convention was a Western popculture festival, with lots of elderly fans. (i have seen the future?) While I was on my way to the bus stop, I passed a hiphop group checking in.
    once, in Westchester, I stayed at a hotel which was hosting a golf tournament and a “young miss” beauty pageant. kinda weird, seeing young girls dressed up like that, especially right after the Ramsey case.
