Phil Goes Hollywood: Phil attends the 1st Annual Day of the Scream Queens at Dark Delicacies-January 19, 2014

Once again I traveled back down so sunny Southern California to attend another amazing event (I seriously need to think about moving down there). On Sunday, my friend Mo Whelan and I attended the First Annual Day of the Scream Queens event, which was held at the ultra cool Dark Delicacies bookstore over in Burbank. Over a dozen of legendary and modern scream queens were there signing autographs and taking pictures, and yours truly was there in the thick of it all!

The man responsible for making all this happen is David DeCoteau, who's directed some of the best horror, B-movies, and cult classics of all time such as NIGHTMARE SISTERS, SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-O-RAMA, 1313: COUGAR CULT, PUPPETMASTER III: TOULON'S REVENGE, CREEPOZOIDS, MURDER WEAPON, IMMORTAL KISS: QUEEN OF THE NIGHT, and DR. ALIEN. DeCoteau has worked with several with these actresses, many have appeared in more than one of his films.

Those actresses in attendance for this extraordinary event were as follows: Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer, Lynn Lowry, Donna Wilkes, Deanna Lund, Darcy DeMoss, Kristine DeBell, Eileen Dietz, Laurene Landon, Helene Udy, Jessica Morris, Lisa London, Trina Parks, Carolyn Purdy-Gordon, and Jean Louise O'Sullivan.

Also attending the event were many celebrities within the genre such as Charles Band from Full Moon Features, director Ted Newsom, screenwriter Kenneth J. Hall, and FRIDAY THE 13th music composer Harry Manfredini.

Overall the whole event was a massive success! I would like to congratulate David DeCoteau on making this all happen! And big thanks to Del Howison and everybody over at Dark Delicacies! And last, but not least, my good friend Mo Whelan for allowing me to stay at her place that weekend! I had a blast and I cannot wait to come back down to Hollywood! After all, this is the place where dreams come true!
