Schedule of the dead
Check it out.
Now, the question is: what are my priorities. Ultimately, I am there to bring you, my readers, the best coverage I can. You have to remember is that I am a fan, too. And this is my first convention. (I've covered some fairly big names in the music biz, so I shouldn't get as starstruck as I might otherwise. But seriously. Look at the schedule and tell me you wouldn't go all fanboy/fangirl over some of this stuff.)
There are some panels that get me excited more than others. The Sunday offerings of an examination of Christian theology in the undead piques my interest as does a panel on the evolution of horror journalism (which I am proud to be a part of).
There are some things I really don't care about, but you might. The "True Blood" programs, for example. Yeah, just not interested. If you, the readers, demand that I go, then fine. I'll go.
I'm excited to see Lucio Fulci's "Zombie," "Day of the Dead" and "The Evil Dead" with a crowd instead of alone in my house.
And the only thing that would make a "Devil's Rejects" screening better than having Sid Haig and Bill Moseley there would be if Mr. and Mrs. Rob Zombie randomly showed up.
And if you're not into horror (then why are you reading this?), there is a "Boondock Saints" panel with Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus.
I told you, this is going to be a great weekend and it's less than 20 days away!
