9. Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors (1986)
I watched an awesome documentary on the first Fangoria “Weekend of Horrors” horror convention. If you have any serious interest in horror movies, and want to see interviews with people like Tobe Hooper and Dan O’Bannon in their primes, this is a must-see. While watching it, I had several very important epiphanies:
1. “Boner” from Growing Pains is CHEKOV’S SON. He was just saying something cheesy to the camera, and then he’s like, “I brought my dad here because he likes this stuff,” and then he turns around and it’s Walter Koenig?! That is basically the twist ending to this documentary, even though it happens in the middle.
2. Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) was actually pretty hot in a nerdy 80s kind of way. Tobe Hooper was not bad-looking either. Rick Baker was okay too.
3. I will never find love and am destined to die alone, because 99% of people with interests similar to mine are totally friggin weird. I mean, I am a little odd, but manage quite well in the real world, and you probably wouldn’t guess that I had this intense love of horror movies if I didn’t tell you. It’s not something I wear on my sleeve. Seriously, though, it appears my options are majorly limited.
Just look at these marriageable young bachelors:
I know this documentary was filmed 24 years ago, but I have a feeling not much has changed in that regard.
