    Default True story from the horrorfind convention

    Saturday Aug 20,2005 530 pm approx


    Im on the first floor of the hotel , and I go to get some ice , the first ice machine is broken , so I walk around to the other one , and thats also broken , the hotel handyman said go up to the next floor for ice. I go to the elevator, and there are two people getting on the elevator , One of them I recognise as actor Andrew Divoff ( The WishMaster ). So I make small talk , and ask how he likes the convention , he said it's great ,everyone is so nice. I have an ice bucket in my hand , and I say that my stay is great , but I wish I could find an ice machine that works, so we get out , and he starts down the hall and im standing there wondering which way to go , I ask a man in a dracula costume were the ice machine is ( later found out he was is owner/operator and convention host for horror find ) , I did'nt hear what he said but he pointed in the same direction that Andrew Divoff went , so I start walking down this long hall ,a block long , and I see mr Divoff way down the hall about to make a left turn, he stops , and turns around and points to the right , he says " heres you ice machine" , I yell thank you ,and hes gone by the time I get to the end of the hallway.

    So im filling my bucket with ice,and I let go of the button , and stare into space as it dawns on me that I just had a wish granted by the WishMaster!!!!!!.

    Wow, the closest I ever came to a star was Sinbad. He was at the computer show in Chicago. He is taller than I expected.

    Great story, Marksin.

    Speaking of elevators, I was at Chiller in the spring, and was waiting for one, when along comes Zacherley, a local vampire TV host and Chiller god, with one of his handlers. Zach is verrry old, and looked a bit tired, so I let the opportunity go to say hi and let him be. The elevator doo opened, and he started in, but it was packed, and as his handler said, going down instead of up. Without pause, he broke into character, and screamed "You're all going dowwwwn! DOWWWN!", while pumping his thumb downward. I never saw a crowded elevator burst into laughter and applause as the doors shut.

    One of the coolest people I have met (friend of the family) is a man named Johnny Kazian. One of the only people who can scare the sh1t out of me. His name is Johnny Kazian. The link is a picture of him working. I got to see his show and WOW. Check your pants afterwards. He autographs his pictures with the following....."Fly Kazian airlines....Always a seat even if I have to stand...". BTW, he is not the one sitting.

  8. Default Horrorfind

    dracula costume were the ice machine is ( later found out he was is owner/operator and convention host for horror find )
    Hi Nikki here, Horrorfind's fiction editor and forum administrator.

    Just wanted to clear this up...

    Mike Roden is the owner of Horrorfind, the person you spoke to is Count Gore De Vol, he does a lot of work with us but has his own gig as the host of Creature Feature which you can find here. (If any of you grew up in the Maryland area - Count Gore was also Captain 20... now that I've showed everyone my how old I really am heh)

    Sorry you had to deal with the ice machine mess - most of them were just not plugged in rather than broken - I tried to run around on Thursday night and plug them all in but the hotel staff went right behind me unplugging them all again (the bastages!)

    As an after thought - I may have spoken to some of you - I was dressed as Little Red Riding Hood on Friday night and Saturday during the day - I was the chick making everyone messy by having them reach into my wolfs head

    Oh ,sorry ,we thought he was the owner when we saw him on stage hosting the costume contest. I got this great story because of the ice machine,so its not a total loss.
    You guys did a great job!!, we had a wonderful time , and we are coming to your next one that east coast.
    Thanks to the whole crew.

    I remember getting home from dorsey speedway where my fathers raced just in time to watch creater feature,and ole captain C in the afternoons,I never knew they were the same guy.

    I really enjoy the spookey stuff and would love to hit a convention close to home,I still live in maryland.

    thanks!
