My son, Grendel & I are planning to go to Flashback Weekend in Chicago in August if all goes well. The last time we both went we saw several horror movies and Bruce Campbell in the flesh. Grendel got an autograph. About a year later Grendel got an autograph from Laurie Holden and got his picture taken with her. This time they're featuring, among others, Robert Englund in full Freddy makeup. I'd be interested in who else might be attending.

I'm west of Chicago, however I've never heard of such weekend. Is it horrific based or just retro with a side of horror? Best to google I assume.
