Weekend Of Cancellations May 2011

Like every year, this year was also looking very good for the Weekend Of Horrors. But also like every year most of the guests were cancelled. Not because they are unable to come or because they are sick, but because they were never booked or never booked a flight for. This kind of flase advertisement made me find a way to enter the venue for free, instead of paying the regular fee of 27 euro's.

Tom Sizemore ("Heat", "Saving Private Ryan", "Black Hawk Down", "Pearl Harbor") is a great actor, but unfortunately due to mutiple addictions he hasn't done a decent movie for years. At the show you could easily see him struggling through the day (without a shot?) and it took him a long time to sign for fans and most of the time he didn't look at you but he was looking at the ground the complete duration. Also during the photoshoot it was obvious that he wasn't doing good at all! For me signed the DVD-cover of "Saving Private Ryan" and the Blu Ray-cover of "Heat". Off course I also did a photoshoot with the guy!
Jake Busey ("The Hitcher 2", "Starship Troopers", "Identity") came without his father, bacause he had to look after Jake's brother. But that didn't hold me back fro doing a photoshoot with this friendly actor!
Danielle Harris cancelled the Weekend Of Horrors so many times that I lost count. I couldn't belive my eyes when I found out that indeed she was really there!!! Danielle Harris is mostly famous for her roles in the old "Halloween" franchise and the new "Halloween" franchise. I decided to do a photoshoot with her.
This was actually the first picture that was taken, but I decided to do another one.

John Malkovich @ Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen

When I picked up the info that two time Academy Award nominated actor John Malkovich ("Con Air", "Dangerous Liaisons", "Ripley's Game") was doing a play in Recklinghausen, Germany, I instant wanted to try it. It was very convenient that I could combine it with the Weekend Of Horrors, better known as the Weekend Of Cancellations, which was being held nearby in Bottrop. Before I went to the convention I waited outside the theatre for his arrival. When he actually did arrive, the exentric actor posed for a picture with me. he was very reluctant about signing so I'm very happy that I got a picture with him at least.

Antwerp Convention 2011

For the first time ever the Antwerp convention was being held in, ofcourse, Antwerp! This convention was mainly for Sci-Fi, Horror & Fantasy lovers. The convention itself wasn't that big, Rene and me discovered when we arrived at the venue. After some time I was going to check the guests, which weren't busy at all. Actually surprisingly enough they was no line for a single guest.

Rugerro Deodato is an Italian director mostly known for his horrifying cannibal movie "Cannibal Holocaust" in which he used real animal slaughter. The infamous director posed for a picture.

Fred Williamson, mostly known for his parts in "From Dusk Till Dawn" and "Starksy & Hutch" posed for a picture.
Scott Capurro, who voiced "Beed" in the movie "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" posed for a picture.
Uwe Boll, the world's worst director ever is mostly known for his completely absurd, badly directed movies, such as "Alone In The Dark", "Alone In The Dark 2", "Bloodrayne", "Bloodrayne 2", "Bloodrayne 3", "Tunnel Rats", "Stoic", "Seed", "In The Name Of The King", "Postal" and his new movie "Auswitz". He signed my previously made posed picture and posed for a new one. Keep up doing the bad job Uwe. Make all the Germans proud!
