The Three Best Things About Wizard World 2014

Ted Raimi and Bruce Campbell lambast another happy audience member.

Bruce Campbell scares some dude's wife.

If you've seen any of Bruce Campbell's films like The Evil Dead or Man with the Screaming Brain, you know that the actor has a deliciously sick sense of humor. So when he and longtime friend and costar Ted Raimi turned the tables on the Ferrara Theatre audience to play a crazy game of "YOU Be the Panel," we knew we were in for a treat. Campbell and Raimi invited audience members to the stage for beratement and odd questions, including ones about losing virginity and, ahem, working with wood. But things got really interesting when a computer forensics investigator walked onstage and attempted to show Campbell a photo on his phone. Campbell demanded that the man dial his wife before stealing the phone, telling her in a chilling southern accent, "I'm here with your husband. You'll never see him again," and then hanging up. The frightened wife called back a few seconds later, and Campbell took the phone again. "Did you think I was kidding?"

Campbell also poked fun at another Wizard World guest who was scheduled to take the stage over the weekend. "Oh, Nathan Fillion, he's so handsome," Campbell said in his best fangirl voice. "You shut the hell up about Nathan Fillion. He's gayer than hell, and he's tried to hit on me many times."

Rob Prior and Tech N9ne are down with the dancing cosplayers.

Tech N9ne admits his love for "Hammer pants."

We didn't know what to expect when we walked into the "When Comics and Music Collide" panel featuring Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne and acclaimed comic book and airbrush artist Rob Prior, but the last-minute decision to stop by proved to be a good one.

The duo spoke about how they've been creating art together for some time now, with Prior painting live on stage while Tech N9ne performs songs like "Fragile" and "Worldwide Choppers." Tech N9ne also shared his crazy fashion sense over the years, copping to having a "giant box afro with a big red streak down the middle" and also wearing "Hammer pants." Tech N9ne and Prior were the special guests at the Wizard World after-party on Saturday, giving away 20 of their limited-edition collaborative prints.

Don't forget the wealth of local talent in the film festival.. a seemingly overlooked (and awesome) part of the weekend.
