There was a lot going on Saturday afternoon inside the Burbank Airport Marriott for this year's Weekend of Horrors convention. Artists sketched guests as creepy caricatures. The stars of Dario Argento's films signed autographs. There was a costume contest as well as a gallery featuring horror-themed art from thirteen artists, including Dienzo, Todd Robey and Clint Carney. It was a great convention. But, at 5 p.m., it almost seemed as though the con had stopped, that most of the guests inside the Marriott had filed into one large auditorium for what would be the highlight of the day-- Bruce Campbell.
Right now, Campbell is best known for playing Sam Axe on the cable TV hit Burn Notice. But, in this room, where the audience is clearly filled with long-time fans, he's known for movies like My Name is Bruce and Bubba Ho-Tep and television roles like Autolycus on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess as well the lead character in the short-lived series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. More importantly, though, Campbell is beloved for his role as Ash in the Evil Dead series.
If you're a fan of horror movies, you've probably seen, and may well have loved, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Based on those movies, it's no wonder that Campbell drew a massive crowd at a genre convention such as this. But, there's more to it than that.
