As if the lineup for Flashback Weekend 2019 wasn’t already impressive enough, Chicago’s best horror convention recently announced that this year’s event will play host to a Night of the Creeps reunion, featuring director Fred Dekker, Tom Atkins, Jason Lively, Jill Whitlow, and Steve Marshall. And for those of you ultra NOTC geeks out there, you’ll even have the opportunity to take an in-costume photo with the whole gang, which should be a total thrill for attendees.

Flashback Weekend revealed earlier this year that genre legends Sam Raimi, Robert Englund, Bruce Campbell, and Tony Todd will all be in attendance this August, making the Chicago horror con a can’t-miss event for horror fans. Other attendees announced for FBW 2019 include Lance Henriksen, Virginia Madsen, Ted Raimi, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, Lisa Wilcox, Tuesday Knight, Alicia Witt, Cerina Vincent, and Return of the Living Dead 3’s Melinda Clarke.

Flashback Weekend is Chicago’s largest and longest-running horror convention, and for 2019, it will be running from Friday, August 2nd through August 4th at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel (5440 N. River Road, Rosemont, IL 60018). For more information on Flashback Weekend, please visit their website at
