(For a writeup of the convention itself, with pictures and links, go here.)
Albany is an interesting place- hilly, lots of funky architecture and sculpture.
That's The Egg- a concrete, windowless theater, atop an indoor plaza, with no views to the outside.
Which is weird, because there's a beautiful plaza space up top.
But at 5 at night, people suddenly disappear, and the place becomes the set for a zombie movie- complete with a few shambling forms in the eerie shadowed corners. These open places look like post-apocalyptic landscapes. The streets are deserted, as if humanity has been swallowed up.
Okay- so maybe instead of having a mystery convention there, they should switch to horror. All the filmmakers would just go outside and begin shooting video.
Yeah, I know Vincent Zandri likes it there. But he's tougher than me.
