B) John Saxon was confirmed for Pittsburgh the same weekend weeks ago, I gotta wonder if something is up?
Hey if Saxon stiffs Horror Realm, its cool because Horror Realm already has a plan otherwise Monster Mania can go suck a donkey dick!!!
This is a trend I've noticed...conventions booking shows the same weekend as other conventions.
This weekend you have the Anaheim Comic Con and Chiller Theater...
On April 23rd you have both the Full Moon Tattoo and Horror Film Festival, as well as Motor City Nightmares Con
On April 30th you have Texas Frightmare Weekend and the Con-Tamination show in St. Louis
On September 17th you have both Horror Realm and Monster Mania
On October 8th you have Spooky Empire and the Eerie Horror Fest
On November 5th you have ScareFest and also Crypticon Minneapolis
What sucks about this is even though the conventions aren't really competing for fans, they are competing for celebrity guests. As you've mentioned here John Saxon was booked for Horror Realm and now it appears Monster Mania snagged him away. It happened last year at Spooky Empire where they booked Sid Haig and then Zombie Con X in Wisconsin offered him more money to appear at their show the very same weekend so he canceled his Spooky Empire appearance. I fucking hate this shit!
I agree, and hate this shit also... But you know it doesn't surprise me at all. But what cracks me up is Saxon might not even have talked to MM yet?
Dickjoy, being close to the people of Horror Realm I have already helped out on a possible back up plan if Saxon is not there which I think the fans that are coming to Horror Realm to begin with will like. Besides, I don't believe we have to worry too much about MM taking any admissions from Horror Realm anyhow but I just think its a pure dick move convention promoters do this shit without even talking too each other. FEW DO TALK TO EACH OTHER...
