The big draw for me was the fact that my all time favorite actor, Jeffrey Combs was at the convention. I'm a huge fan of Jeff. His work as Herbert West got me into horror movies. In addition he's great in The Frighteners and well damn near everything he's in. In addition, his voice acting as The Question in Justice League Unlimited was inspired. I had him sign my copy of Beyond Re-Animator (the first in the series that I'd seen, though the last of the movies) and had my picture taken with him.
He was a great guy and seemed really nice. He did a panel with (nearly all of) the cast from the first Re-Animator and an actress from the second. You can find my cinematic unisystem write-up of Dr. West here.
I spent some money on gaming things too. Twilight Creations, the makers of Zombies!!!, Humans!!!, and Martians!!! were there and I finally picked up a copy of Zombies!!! I also bought some zombie Christmas cards, and a few other random bits. The experience was great and I can't wait to go to the next Horror Hound convention (which is in Indianapolis and will have appearences by the main stars of The Boondock Saints).
