Phil counts down to CREATURESCON 2 during the Big Wow! ComicFest at the San Jose Covention Center May 18-19, 2013

During the Big WOW! ComicFest at the San Jose Convention Center May 18th-19th, there will be another special convention happening simultaneously. CreaturesCon 2 is "the world's ONLY convention dedicated to the Bay Area's beloved TV phenomenon Creature Features." For those of you who live outside the Bay Area, this legendary show ran on KTVU Channel 2 in the San Francisco Bay Area from 1971 to 1984. The show was hosted by Bob Wilkins, and later by John Stanley, who took over in 1979. During the convention, we celebrate this beloved television show!

Celebrities in attendance for CreaturesCon 2 are as follows: Creatures Features host John Stanley, filmmaker and Creature Features archivist Tom Wyrsch, Strephon Taylor from November Fire, HARDWARE WARS director Ernie Fosselius, Bay Area horror host Lord Blood-Rah, and Rob Wilkins, son of the late Bob Wilkins, who passed away from Alzheimer's disease on January 7, 2009.

There will be informative Programs and panels for fans to attend: History of TV Horror Hosting panel, Creepy KOFY Movie Time panel, and A Tribute to Bob Wilkins.  There will be a props area, cool Creatures Features items for sale, but the biggest event happening is that there will be a LIVE Creatures Features show hosted by John  Stanley!! That's right! I said a LIVE CREATURES FEATURES SHOW HOSTED BY JOHN STANLEY!! Now I grew up watching the show, and to see it live, it is a dream come true for not only myself, but for fans of the show!!
