Spooky Empire Retro takes us back this weekend as it rolls into its original home—The Wyndam Orlando Resort!
The event will feature some tubular retro reunions that will make you think you have taken a time machine back to the 80’s!
It’s Alive! The annual horror/fan con is coming back this weekend in a big way, and it’s bringing all the throwback fun of the 80’s and 90’s. Hell, even the location is a throwback!
The fun kicks off this weekend in the location that started it all! The Wyndham on International Drive is where all the terror began, and it’s going back for this huge show. Spooky Empire is also turning back time to the 80’s with a ton of reunions, including John Hughes comedy Weird Science. Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan-Mitchell Smith, and Kelly Lebrock will be appearing all weekend to sign autographs and take photos with fans. There will be a special photo op that will feature fans with the trio complete with bras on the head! In addition the cast will be appearing on stage Sunday at 1:00 p.m. for a one of a kind Q&A to answer all of your burning questions about the film.

The reunion includes Heather Langenkamp (Nancy), Rodney Eastman (Joey), Jennifer Rubin (Taryn), Ira Heiden (Will), and Penelope Sudrow (Jennifer).
