Earlier this year, I visited what is known as “the Southwest’s premier horror convention” – Texas Frightmare Weekend. I have several comic cons under my belt, but this was my first horror con.
Unlike comic con, there were no comics or tubs of cheap, cruddy action figures to dig through. But they did have an eclectic assortment of VHS tapes!
Good ole Malcolm McDowell was here and I got to hear his soothing British accent in person, albeit from a distance. I should have gone up to his table to say hi. Same with E.G. Daly and Ted Raimi (go seaQuest!).
I did swing by Michael Paré’s table, since I’m one of the handful of people who watched Starhunter. He said season 3’s supposed to start filming in the fall (so…now).
I followed my companions to the panel for the upcoming Western-themed horror film Crimson Creek Massacre. We saw the trailer (twice) and learned from the Sisters what it was like to be set on fire. We were also told about the existence of a secret Facebook group where all the former child stars of all eras hang out.
Just some Funko ReActions and free pieces of paper. Karate Kill looks like a winner.
