Tony Todd, Mercedes McNab, Svengoolie added; Contests Confirmed! 

Flashback Weekend 2009 has added Tony Todd, Mercedes McNab and Svengoolie to the celebrity guest line-up, and has confirmed the annual Costume Contest hosted by Svengoolie and the third annual Zombie Pinup Beauty Pageant!

Tony Todd is one of the most recognizable faces (and voices) in horror and sci fi on both the small and big screen. Perhaps best known as the iconic Candyman, Tony also reprised the role of Ben in the criminally under-rated 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead, and has brought dozens of other characters to life in movies, TV, animated shows and video games, often creating a memorable character in only one scene, as in Hatchet and Final Destination.

Mercedes McNab knows something about playing the villain, as well. As a child in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values, she played the overprivileged Girl Scout Amanda Buckman, representative of everything the Addamses loathed. A decade later, she joined the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and, later, Angel) as ditzy cheerleader-turned-vampire Harmony Kendall, one of the funniest characters either series produced. Mercedes also starred in Hatchet, last year's Dark Reel and the upcoming Medium Raw.

Flashback Weekend is very pleased to announce that Chicago legend Svengoolie will be returning to join us on Saturday, October 24th, for autographs, photos, a Q&A and to host our annual Costume Contest.
