 The long lost original “HALLOWEEN Wagon” driven by Nick Castle in “John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN” (1978) has been found and will premiere at Flashback Weekend in Chicago this Summer!

“The HALLOWEEN Wagon” featured in the classic “John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN” (1978) will be premiered at Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con July 31 – August 2, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago in Rosemont, IL.    Fans will have the opportunity to take photos with the iconic Station Wagon, and even sit INSIDE this piece of cinema history in the very seat in which Nick Castle (as Michael Myers) sat back in 1978!

This is the very station wagon which Nick Castle drove on location in 1978 during the filming of “John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN”.   This 1978 Ford LTD station wagon was rented from a car rental agency for two weeks of filming.  After filming was completed, the wagon was returned to the rental agency and auctioned off for private use.  It then sat in a barn for decades before being sold to its current caretaker.  The Wagon has received a thorough and complete exterior and interior frame on restoration. The Illinois State Logo and Prisoner Cage have been once again added to the Wagon.

The HALLOWEEN Wagon will be reunited with Nick Castle (the original Michael Myers) at Flashback Weekend Chicago Horror Con July 30 – August 1, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago in Rosemont, IL.   Fans will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with Nick Castle and the station wagon. 

Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago – There is No Substitute!

This summer Flashback Weekend introduces elegance and luxury to Horror conventions by moving to the beautiful and spacious Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago.  We have decided that you deserve a convention environment fit for Royalty. We respect you too much to provide anything less.  A plain, simple, and basic hotel is not good enough for you, and not good enough for Flashback Weekend. The beauty of the Hyatt simply does not compare with any hotel you have seen before!

When you enter the Hyatt and see, all at once, the towering sky-lit atrium above and the amazing glass elevators soaring to the sky;  you will experience pure wonder and amazement.  That feeling will last all weekend as you explore and experience the services that the Hyatt has to offer you.  With our new enormous beautiful Vendors room with a huge ceiling, the wide hallways, and the spacious sun-lit lobbies several stories tall, a walk through the inside of the Hyatt is like a stroll through a futuristic city!  Flashback Weekend 2021 tickets now on sale.
