    Most straightforward ComicCon yet!

    Yeah that's the same documentary on the Eaten Alive blu-ray. It's great :) I'm currently trying to track down the Man From The Deep River blu-ray, but don't want the censored UK version.

    Yeah, as soon as I posted that image I was bit unsure whether it would offend some. I've changed the image now.

    Yes I did. Nice lady, but appeared a bit on the shy side. She signed my Eaten Alive sleeve. I asked her whether she would still have done that movie if she could turn back time and to my surprise she said "no". Me Me Lai said she really didn't like that movie at all and preferred making Man From The Deep River.

    From my experience they were very nice again (I first met them a few years ago at another event) Ruggero has limited english, occasionally needing the lady next to him (presumably his grand daughter) to translate, but still holds a conversation fine. As soon as he saw the image I wanted him to sign, he asked me whether I knew how it was done (the infamous wooden stake impalement). He said the wooden stake was attached to a bicycle seat and only cost them $10 to create. I asked him whether House On The Edge Of the Park sequel would still happen, despite David Hess' passing, but he said it wouldn't work without him. Francesca was also very chatty, happily signed the same image and posed for photos too. I asked her whether she would still do Cannibal Holocaust if she could turn back time and she said "yes!". The only difference being that she regretted turning down the roles Ruggero gave her after that movie was released.

    Does anyone know whether David Naughton was on VQ tickets today? Also James Jude Courtney too?

    Rutger Hauer has passed away

    Such sad news. Am happy to have met him, but do regret not getting the photo or getting a second autograph the next day. My memories of Rutger that weekend was approaching him at his table where gave me a cheeky tongue out face while taking a bite from his Mars bar. Also as I left the venue, I saw him having a smoke outside, visibly very tired from a long day. He will be missed.

    No cheaper late entry tickets this year?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I too remember the 2014 LFCC event; so much confusion at the separate gate entries. Just thought this might have changed since the move from Earls Court to the Olympia venue.
  8. I was looking to attend one of the days at a later time, at a discounted price, but there is only one type of ticket. Eventbrite pretty much confirms this, but is there any reason why this was stopped from previous events?

    LATEST GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT - GEORGE LAZENBY

    I didn't meet George, but was next to him while waiting for Robert Englund. I noticed that the man sitting next to him was using a laminated card sign to block people from seeing George's autograph from being written. Never seen that before. I assume it was to prevent anyone from seeing how it's written and creating fakes.

    LATEST GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT - C J GRAHAM

    Very happy about the costume photoshoot. I met him at another event over a year ago and the photographers totally messed up my photoshoot making it completely out of focused. Didn't think I could get another opportunity, so thank you Showmasters. I know I can rely on you!

    Latest Guest Announcement - NICK CASTLE

    He haid no queue by the end of the day. Felt like going back to him for a chat. What I will complain about is how they managed the VQ system. When I got to his table at 9am, they were not using VQ tickets despite him being very busy on the Friday. A red-tshirt crew member said "not at this time". Of course a long queue formed soon after and a VQ system was put in place. I got 27. The problem was that the system was just simply forgotten about. No one was checking VQ tickets later in the day and the queue was getting longer that was blocking people from getting to other quests. There were people in front of me that had no VQ tickets but still got to meet Nick Castle. When it was my turn, I was't asked to show my ticket.

    EXITING Venue

    Yeah me too. I'm pretty familiar with the venue layout, but was turned away at each exit until I got to the exit where the entrance is (there is a big Showmaster's exit sign above it). Not cool after being on my feet for 14 hours. Also, the new exit at Olympia West is a lot smaller, so you get a bottleneck effect and with a lot of people crowding around outside.

    Exciting Guest Announcements, Friday at 7pm!

    Kathy Bates to join James Caan (wild guess)

    Latest Guest Announcement - ROBERT ENGLUND

    I've heard through the grapevine that he might be reducing the number of appearances, but not stopping. Showmasters have already confirmed he will be a diamond pass guest next time.

    Latest Guest Announcement - ROBERT ENGLUND

    I didn't hear anything about him catching a flight, other than he apparently missed his earlier breaks and wanted to use them at the end of his working shift. Either way he is a slow signer and he definitely wouldn't have gotten as far as he did without the 'one autograph per VQ ticket' rule to everyone including those pesky dealers. They also made Gold passholders get VQ tickets. I'm still surprised by how busy he was. He wasn't able to fulfil diamond passholders at LFCC due to his makeup photoshoot, but his appearances at Cardiff and Collectormania 20 in 2013 were much quieter. He hasn't done anything significant since to explain the increase of demand. It can only be down to increase of convention attendees. I also think the sudden increase of successful (non-showmaster) horror cons around the UK have most likely introduced new people to this scene.
