This panel in the Cairo room on Saturday evening comprised of the exceptionally accredited staff of Dr. John Flynn, Dr. Bob Blackwood, Chris Gore, and the moderator, Matthew Foster.
The panel discussion started with introductions from each person. As Matthew led the way with questions, this knowledgeable staff was talking about the films that were not well known. It was amazing how many in the audience knew these films. Then there were the classics like The Day The Earth Stood Still and Forbidden Planet that brought back fond childhood memories. This group was truly the “die-hard film geeks,” as one member stated.
This packed, standing-room only audience was hanging on the words of this panel, reminiscing with them of older, bygone films that never reach the level of stardom they deserved but are the crux of the SF and horror film industry.
