From August 4th through the 6th, Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con took over the Windy City
, and Daily Dead was on hand for all the horror-fied festivities. Throughout all three days, this writer served as one of Flashback’s co-hosts, and brought back some highlights from several of the panels held over the course of the convention.
First up is a discussion on easily one of the greatest horror movies of the last 20 years, Rob Zombie
’s The Devil’s Rejects, between two of the film’s co-stars, William Forsythe
and Lew Temple
. During their panel, the duo discussed their initial feelings on working with Zombie, collaborating alongside their fellow cast members (including the late, great Geoffrey Lewis
), which scenes were improvised, and what it is about Zombie as a cinematic storyteller that has fueled them to return on several of his other projects post-Devil’s Rejects.Lew Temple
