Weekend of Hell Dortmund Fall Edition 2018, Dortmund, Germany



Being Dutch, we were both very happy to see one of the biggest actors of all time from The Netherlands, being announced for Weekend of Hell. For us Rutger Hauer was a living legend. Little did we know that he would pass away less than a year later. We are so happy that we got the chance to meet him at Weekend of Hell. We both had a photo op with Mister Hauer and we attended his panel on both Saturday and Sunday.
