Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Convention
Time Out says
Let out a few blood-curdling screams during Flashback Weekend, an annual convention that celebrates gory slasher flicks, cinematic monsters and horror films. This year's lineup of guests includes Evil Dead director Sam Raimi and franchise star Bruce Campbell. Of course, you'll also be able to dig through a terrifying amount of classic movie memorabilia or show off your creepiest outfit at a horror-themed costume contest judged by local legend Svengoolie.
