Rock and shock is finally over.
We got to meet many great people and reconnect with many others, Alex Winters (The Lost Boys), Dee Wallace (Cujo, ET), Brian Steele (Underworld 1,2 HellBoy1,2) Mellisa Cowan (The Walking Dead). The two big things we got to share some laughs and take some great pics with Ruggario Deodata and George Romero. These two people are among the most legendary of film makers and it was great to meet them and get them to sign our stuff. It would have been great to spend more time with George, but his line was huge and you were rushed thru it rather fast. Danny Trejo was the most expensive person there that weekend. It was hard to drop $30 bucks on his signature, or 20 for a photo with him. A lot of guests said they were asked by the con to charge for photos with them. This seems very strange as we were told that the con does not make up the prices, so very conflicting stories. Hats off to Gina and Kevin for putting ona great show. Only major complaint is the show needs something more added to it. One thing would be to hire an artist to make the R&S program into a mini comic. An idea to wait till next years show to pass along.
ROH only went to one of the concerts but it was the best on Rob zombie and Alice Cooper was one of the best shows we have seen in years. Having been to a Zombie concert in 2001, and 2002 we knew what to expect but it was great to see him live again. Alice Cooper is one of those old school rock stars and finally we saw him, something I was always worried we would never get a chance to do. I stayed for 30 mins of Gwar but had to leave do to a cold. Thanks go to Neal and Brian of Horror Idols without them we would never have been able to go to the concert.
Some of the films and Q&As we had a chance to check out were Human Centipeed (introduced by the cast), Lizbeth-a documentry on Lizzie Borden, Pink Sock- created by my buddy Josh at Movie Stop. We attended the Author Q&A with former guests Jack Ketchum and Joe Netter. The Q&A with Deodata was real cool the man is a legend for one of the greatest goreiest films ever made.
Lost of great Vendors like Dread Central and Fionas Frieght Shop, Paul Nicholasi of Dread is coming on the show tonight. It was also great to meet many peopel who have come on the show and those who have listened I can’t wait till next year see you then.
