, to be held Mar. 21-23 at the Nashville Airport Marriott. Hello? George Night of the Living Dead
Romero? George Dawn of the Dead

and an obscure indie feature called E.T.
Pioneering gore-effects whiz Tom Savini, Michael "The Hills Have Eyes" Berryman, Tony "Candyman" Todd and Halloween III: Season of the Witch
director Tommy Lee Wallace are also listed in the line-up.
