B-Horror & Sci-Fi: The Good, The Good-Bad, The Bad-Bad & The Ugly [18+]
Take a look into the world of cult horror, sci-fi, and animation in this glorious, gore-filled presentation. We'll discuss what makes a film good, good-bad, bad-bad, or ugly and provide plenty of clips; because some things you really need to see to believe. We'll delve into movies like "Twisted Pair", "Frankenstein's Army", and "I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday". You'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll say "WTF". This panel is 18+ and not for those with sensitive eyes!

The Eye of Argon, largely regarded as one of the worst short stories ever written, is a scifi convention tradition. In this "you laugh, you lose" contest, come try your hand, and see if you can read even a paragraph without hesitation, laughter or pronouncing the words too correctly, and you may be able to take home the fabled Golden Grignr.
