Not definitely yet, have to see who they're bringing. I need some Halloween people, but not a lot, so the guest list has to be worth it. I'm still tempted to go just to tour the sites and possibly attempt to coordinate some other west coast street meets.

The con is being run by Trancas International Films, the company that owns the Halloween film rights, in conjunction with HorrorHound, so I'm sure they're going to be pulling out all of the stops to create a big event to promote the new film. I'm sure all of the con regulars like PJ Soles, Danielle Harris and all of the Myers actors will be there, but it'll be interesting to see how many new/rare Halloween guests they can bring out.

Added:

Nick Castle
PJ Soles
Charles Cyphers
David Kyle (78 Halloween - first con ever)
John Michael Graham (78 Halloween)
Will Sandin (78 Halloween)
Kim Gottleib-Walker (78 Halloween set photographer)
Dick Warlock (H2, H3)
Tommy Lee Wallace (78 Halloween, H3)
Don Shanks (H5)
A. Michael Lerner (Curse of Michael Myers)
Gary J. Clayton (Ressurection - first con ever)
Donna Keegan (JLC Stunt Double Ressurection)
Tyler Mane (RZ H1, RZ H2)
James Jude Courtney (2018 Halloween Myers - first con ever)

Kyle and Graham are great adds, and obviously nobody has the new Myers yet, but the rest are either common or marginal to even being able to be booked. I'm sure there's a ton more coming, but it's off to a good start.

Sandy Johnson (1978 Halloween, Judith Myers) announced- first con ever

This is a huge add for horror fans - she's the very first Myers victim. On the one hand, with the new movie coming out, I'd bet a ton of money that she'll make the rounds and do ever con. But on the other hand, she might have a miserable time and never come out again. I'm not 100% committed, but this add *might* get me on the plane.

So what Halloween name would definitely get you on the plane?

There isn't one, unfortunately. If they get me, it'll either be with quantity of needs, or if I just don't want to risk Sandy Johnson not coming around again. Pleasance is dead and I already got Jamie Lee, so there are no more holy grail Halloween guests left for me.

Halloween is my all time favorite horror franchise but beyond Carpenter and Curtis both of which I have, I’d sort of like Danielle Harris but that’s it. I don’t care to meet any of the small characters or Meyers actors and Pleasance being dead eliminates the other big name I’d want.

Josh Hartnett I'd love but there's nothing at all that can get me to California for a con.

He's pretty easy on the street, very nice guy, when he's around.
