It may be nearly 10 months away, but Flashback Weekend is already starting to put together their lineup for the 2019 convention next August. The first announced guest for next year’s festivities is none other than “The Chin” himself, the legendary Bruce Campbell. The last time Campbell headed to the Windy City for Flashback Weekend to be a part of the longest-running horror convention was back in 2005 (which this writer remembers, as she was an attendee that year), so having Bruce Campbell back in 2019 is an amazing way to kick off my excitement for what’s to come for next year’s Flashback Weekend.

Flashback Weekend will run from August 2nd through the 4th, with Campbell in attendance on Saturday and Sunday only. It’s still very early, but to keep up on all the Flashback news, be sure to check out the official convention website HERE for more updates to come.
