Texas Frightmare Weekend is here again and it’s shaping up to be another thrill ride for horror fans. The annual event is taking place again at the Hyatt Regency Hotel located within the DFW Airport. The three day convention packs as much punch as it can with bloody great vendors, celebrities, screenings, and parties.
Highlights of this year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend include the return of Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund. “Night of the Living Dead” creator George A. Romero makes a rare convention appearance as well. I would consider these two to be the Guests of Honor. Here are two legends of the horror genre you absolutely must meet.
Many reunions of cast members from different classic slasher films are taking place at Texas Frightmare Weekend. Rose McGowan, David Arquette, Matthew Lillard, and Skeet Ulrich come together to celebrate the cinematic “Scream” legacy. Carlson Young and Bex Taylor-Klaus represent the new generation from MTV’s “Scream” TV series.
“Halloween II” is also given its due through a gathering of its many cast members. Michael Myers himself, Dick Warlock, is joined by Lance Guest (“The Last Starfighter”), Nancy Stephens, Nancy Loomis, Charles Cyphers, and Ana Alicia. Danielle Harris will be on hand for those fans of Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” films.
KISS Army members have a major reason to attend Texas Frightmare Weekend. Founding member Peter Criss, the Catman himself, will be signing autographs, taking pictures, and greeting his fans. The former drummer of the Hottest Band in the World rarely makes public appearances, so take advantage while you can.
Texas Frightmare Weekend really is one of the greatest horror conventions out there. All of your favorite genre celebrities are there and easily accessible to their fanbase. There’s a couple of rooms filled with all sorts of terrifying collectibles, toys, clothing, artists, and other rare memorabilia. It’s a can’t miss event that you’ll never forget.
