One of my favorite horror films of the past five years was Behind The Mask, and I’ve been waiting patiently for a sequel (director Scott Glosserman’s followup narrative feature, a thriller titled The Truth Below, is now in post). Beyond a cute reference in Hatchet II, it’s been pretty quiet in Glen Echo, but seeing that Glosserman and nearly the entire cast – including Robert Englund – is reuniting for a panel at Creation’s Weekend of Horrors in LA next weekend seems to be a good sign, as I’m sure we’ll get some (hopefully positive) updates on the sequel. In addition, the Master himself, John Carpenter, will be on stage for a rare LA appearance, and he’ll have a few Halloween co-stars with him for a mini-reunion panel for that legendary film. Add in the great Lance Henriksen, Heather Langenkamp, Tom Savini, plus rare stateside appearances by Asia Argento and Lamberto Bava, and we’re talking about the best con lineup for an LA show that I’ve seen since I moved out here in late 2005. Head over to the official site to check out the full lineup and buy tickets now (also available at the door), and see you there! Say hi! I’ll be the one drooling at the Halloween panel.
