H40: 40 Years of Terror was purely and simply the ultimate Halloween franchise reunion, with numerous panels throughout the weekend, but there was only one with so much love in the air that it included a surprise marriage proposal, as fan Eric Crimmons asked his girlfriend, Sandra Maxey, to marry him in front a room full of fans and cast and director of Halloween II.
The Halloween II panel included director Rick Rosenthal, cinematographer Dean Cundey, Dick Warlock (Michael Myers), Nancy Stephens, Lance Guest, Leo Rossi, Pamela Susan Shoop, Tawny Moyer, Ana Alicia, Gloria Gifford, Jeffrey Kramer, Ty Mitchell, and Adam Gunn (young Michael Myers; making his first convention appearance), moderated by Rob Galluzzo of Dread Central Presents.
About midway through the panel, Warlock stepped up to podium and called Crimmons to the stage, where he got down on one knee and popped the question to Sandra, who enthusiastically said, “Yes”.
Crimmons told Halloween Daily News that he was debating on whether to propose during the Horror’s Hallowed Grounds bus tour the day prior or at the Halloween II panel. He said he ultimately chose to do it at the panel because Halloween II is his favorite film. “And they’re all my family,” he said of the fans in attendance to witness the big moment.
Our full panel report and additional video highlights will be posted soon, but first up, you can watch the surprise marriage proposal from the Halloween II panel at H40: Forty Years of Terror and see our photo gallery of the happy couple below.
