EXPERIMENT IN TERROR
(How to Screw Dealers & Fans)
We originally were going to
have a table there, but decided against it. Mainly due to the fact that
they were advertising guests that they didn't have. When we first got
their dealer package, they were advertising guests such as porn celebs like Ron
Jeremy and Traci Lords, and other horror genre guests like Tom Savini, Jess
Franco & Lina Romay, and not only Dario Argento, but also his daughter
Asia. Of course, these guest are all 'tentative". As we've
stated before, through another contact, we learned that Dario knew nothing about
the show, let alone planned on being there.
But this was what the dealers and fans
were told who would be the lineup. Now they were advertising a lot of
different authors and artists. Whether or not they were there, I don't
know. But out of all the above people mentioned, Franco & Romay were
they only ones who were there.
Why, you ask? Simple. To get dealers to pay for
tables, and get the fans to come to the show.
"Is Argento here?", I asked when I got there, as
I'm paying my $15 admission fee.
"Uhhh, sorry. He couldn't make it. He's
working on a new film. But all the other guests are here."
"So Traci Lords is here?"
"Well . . . Uuhhh. No."
But Jess Franco and Lina Romay were there, and that was the
main reason I was there. They were both great, signing anything that you
put in front of them, and most importantly, not charging a dime for an
If you are new to Franco and Romay's work, I would suggest
starting out with either THE AWFUL DR. ORLOFF, FEMALE VAMPIRE or BARB WIRE
DOLLS. Of course there is also COUNT DRACULA, which stars Christopher Lee,
Herbert Lom, Klaus Kinski, and Jack Taylor. Enjoy the photos.
