Twisted Terror Convention Opens Strong

Leave your comic books at home, because as the name implies TWISTED TERROR CON is all about the screams. A new addition to Sacramento, this horror infused convention has brought not just current horror faves, but also our heroes from the past.
For its inaugural convention it boasts a good guest list. There's Gil Gerard and Erin Gray from BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY, Kevin Tenney, the director of 80s classics WITCHBOARD and NIGHT OF THE DEMONS, Sean Whalen of PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS, Josh Stewart from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, Nicholas Brendon from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, Kyla Kennedy and Chandler Riggs of THE WALKING DEAD. There are many more guests scheduled as well, but these just happen to be my favorites.
In addition, there will of course be dealers galore, as well as a film festival in the screening room.
Being the first day of the convention, and rainy out it was a pretty good turn out. The big headliner was obviously Chandler Riggs. He doesn't come out often, in fact, this was his very first West Coast appearance, and the girls definitely came out to see him. With minimal security on hand, he wore a look of concern most of the time, but was very sweet when posing for pictures and signing autographs. However, unlike his very chatty co-star Kyla, he remained mostly tight lipped. He was dressed very Carl, just missing the trademark hat.

Nicholas Brendon is always a stop, when he's in town. As a fan favorite from Buffy, and a frequent con guest, he's always up for chatting, hugs, and pictures.

Sean Whalen was remarkably chatty as well, and surprisingly my little one had to get a picture of him. He's really great with kids, though I'm not sure how many of them approach him. I remember him most for his scary turn as Roach in People Under the Stairs, though she knows him only as Mantooth from Wizards of Waverly Place. He even did the Ooogy Ooogy Boo for her.

The one guest who may have been the favorite was sweet little Kyla Kennedy. With her gushing mom by her side, she told the story of her casting as the ill-fated Mika, and how the part was originally meant for a boy, but they changed the role after her audition.

Tomorrow marks the close of this con, so if you're in the Sacramento Area, its definitely one to check out. There's no word yet if they'll be back for 2015, but its certainly a hope. Also, to close out its first weekend there will be a raffle. The prize is a Twisted Terror Con program signed by all of the special guests, as well as a leather “skeleton” motorcycle jacket signed by horror master and metal legend Rob Zombie and his beautiful muse and wife Sheri Moon Zombie!
The Twisted Terror Con takes place March 29th and 30th, 2014 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Sacramento, CA.
