One of my favorite things in this world is the retro VHS tape Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors, a 60-minute documentary filmed at the Weekend of Horrors event in 1986. Media Home Entertainment released the doc, directed by Kerry O’Quinn and Mike Hadley, and it’s a deeply nostalgic time capsule, reminding what it was like to be a horror fan back in the ’80s.
Similarly, these wonderful photos from fan Lawrence DeVincentz transport us back in time to the horror conventions of yesteryear… only this particular trip takes us back to the ’90s!
DiVincentz dug through his archives and shared these photos over on Facebook recently, which we’re presenting here with his permission. The photographs are all from Weekend of Horrors events that Lawrence attended throughout the early ’90s, ranging from 1990 to 1995.
All your favorite stars show up in the photos, including many who are still on the convention scene to this day such as Bruce Campbell, Kane Hodder, Linnea Quigley, Tom Savini, Doug Bradley and Robert Englund. Other stars photographed by Lawrence are sadly no longer with us, notably horror legends Angus “Tall Man” Scrimm and Gunnar “Leatherface” Hansen.
In any event, we hope these make you smile today. Thanks for letting us share, Lawrence!
