23 June 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s hard to believe that the Flashback Weekend horror convention in Chicago is already turning 15 years old, but Mike and Mia Kerz, the founders behind the long-running event, are pulling out all the stops to make sure this year’s show is a great experience for attendees, especially if you’re a fan of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series (and who isn’t, really?).

Horror legend Robert Englund headlines Flashback Weekend 2017, which runs from August 4th through the 6th at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare (5440 N. River Road, Rosemont, Il, 60018), and during the convention he’ll be joined by numerous cast members from a handful of sequels and the original Nightmare, including Heather Langenkamp, Lisa Wilcox, Amanda Wyss, Brooke Theiss, Joann Willette, Ricky Dean Logan, Katharine Isabelle, Toy Newkirk, Danny Hassel, Kelly Jo Minter, and many more.

Other notable guests for this year’s Flashback include genre icon Lance Henriksen, as well as Sean Patrick Flanery and David Della Rocca from The Boondock Saints, both Curtis Armstrong and Donald Gibb of Revenge of the Nerds fame, Lew Temple, and horror host extraordinaire, Svengoolie, will also be back to host the annual Sinister Visions costume contest like only Berwyn’s finest can.
