Roger Corman the famous producer was there and was gracious to spend a few minutes and talk to me. I asked him what his favorite Corman horror movie was. He said right now its "The Terror" starring Jack Nicholson. I agree. There were about two hundred vendors selling there horror merchandise. Masks, make Up, shirts, and of course Horror movie merchandise as far as the eye could see.

I spent about two hundred myself on goodies. I met a bunch of great people while waiting in line and the whole affair was family friendly. I got Edward Furlongs autograph on an 8 x 10 photo from Terminator 2. The picture is an action scene with Arnold. My hope is to now get Arnold's autograph.

Cool. I'm not really a horror fan, but I do like looking at shots from these conventions as the costumes are so cool and people put so much thought and creativity into them.
