[BATB 2] VA Beach gets ‘Weird’ Reunion at 2nd Horror Convention

Cast members of the 1985 sci-fi comedy classic Weird Science will reunite for the first time ever at the second Blood at the Beach Horror Convention, taking over the Virginia Beach, Virginia oceanfront Nov. 9-11, 2012.

In the film, an ’80s flavored homage to Frankenstein written and directed by John Hughes, two high school nerds played by Ilan Mitchell-Smith and Anthony Michael Hall build their perfect woman (former supermodel Kelly LeBrock), who helps them find their inner coolness while getting a little revenge of the big brother of Mitchell-Smith’s character played by Bill Paxton and his pal, played by Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man 3).

Hall, who has since starred in big budget features like The Dark Knight and Edward Scissorhands, is a regular on the convention circuit and will join his National Lampoon’s Vacation co-star Dana Barron at “Blood at the Beach II”.

For Mitchell-Smith, however, this marks his first ever convention appearance, as he and Hall will join fellow Weird cast members Suzanne Snyder (Night of the Creeps), Judie Aronson (Hannibal), and Robert Russler (A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge) in Virginia Beach.

Vernon Wells, who makes a cameo appearance in Weird Science basically reprising his memorable character from The Road Warrior (1981), is also scheduled to join more than 40 other celebrity guests at the convention, which runs from Friday, Nov. 9 through Sunday, Nov. 11 at The Cavalier Hotel on the oceanfront in Virginia Beach, VA.
