    I would assume that most guests would be "good/friendly", otherwise, why bother to show up at a convention? I would be interested to hear why you say Danielle Harris was not-so-good. She looks pretty good!

    Angry

    I asked Danielle if my friend could take a picture of us at Chiller a few years ago, and she rolled her eyes and muttered, "Jesus" before she got up to take a whole whopping twenty seconds out of her oh-so-hectic schedule to grant it. My friend developed the picture and mailed it to me a few weeks later, but I just tossed it out. Judging from her IMDB profile, I'm not alone.

    Sort of crazy really because she is a regular on the tv/horror convention circuit. Maybe you just caught her on a bad day.

    tom Savini under good, sure he doesnt charge to sign an item that you bring him but try talking to him, i have had the unhonor multiple times and he just came off as a prick at all times, thats just my opinion and every body else's opinion that has met him
    its all about the Party.

    Now it's funny you should say that because I was talking to somebody last night who had similar tales to tell. Not that he was a prick or anything, just rude. Savini is apparently very stern-faced throughout signings, can can be very dismissive at times and apparently has bad manners in e-mail coversations.

    These are not my thoughts of course as I have never met him.

    Pretty much sums it up for me the first time we met, but he's mellowed since then.

    I have talked to him at a few conventions and he has always been pleasant and was never a prick or anything. I keep hearing people say he is like that, but I have yet to have a bad experiance when talking to him.

    I've met Savini several times and I guess I've also lucked out...he was cool everytime.

    Also I recently met Danielle Harris last year at Dark X-mas and she was REALLY cool. She even chatted a bit and was really sweet.

    Just got back from Chiller and wanted to chalk up Laura Ortiz in the "good guest" column. She's a cute little thing, too.
