In the woods he meets a pretty young stranger who tells him about a local myth concerning a nazi experiment camp.

More Guest Announcements!
We're adding to our Carpenter/Romero vibe for this year's event! John Amplas is most recognizable to fright fans as the titular bloodsucker in Martin. However, he's also one of the most repeated actors in Romero's movies, having appeared in a total of five Romero films.
Speaking of Romero films, we're pleased to announce Jarlath Conroy who will join Amplas and the previously announced Terry Alexander for a mini Day of the Dead reunion.
Carpenter has his favorite actors as well and Charles Cyphers was obviously one of them. Cyphers was featured in six Carpenter movies beginning with Halloween. Please join us in welcoming the original Sheriff Brackett to the southwest's premier horror convention.
Returning to Texas Frightmare Weekend is fan favorite Danielle Harris. Danielle has starred in Halloween 4 and 5 as well as Rob Zombie's two Halloween remakes. She'll join us to talk about Blood Night, playing Friday, April 30th at 8:00 pm during the Texas Frightmare Film Festival.
