Flashback Weekend returns August 5-7. This is one of my favorite conventions every year.
Last year, I met my friends Mike Carey and Chris Margetis, who were promoting The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre, their interesting movie. My interview with them is at On the Beat With Mike Carey and Chris Margetis.
Chris and Mike are great guys. Besides that though, The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre is a cool movie. The IMDB description is "After being relegated, the two fighting brothers signed up for a new game. But they didn't know that they need to stay in an arena to fight zombies."
It's got wrestling, zombies, gore, humor and more. Randy Couture is also in it, along with Mike and Chris. This is a movie I see becoming a cult classic, like Roddy Piper's They Live. I see it gaining populariy as the years pass, but I already like it!
Mike and Chris are not announced as guests for this year's Flashback Weekend, but if they aren't at a table, they will probably be roaming around the convention. Even if they aren't there, plenty of other cool folks will be there. Headlined by Robert Englund, Robert Carradine, Alex Winter, PJ Soles, Kelli Maroney, Donald Gibbs and several others are part of the lineup.
I'll be "On the Beat" at Flashback Weekend. Until then, check FlashbackWeekend.com for more info and updates.
