Been a while since we’ve updated you guys with what’s going on with Fear Fest, the first convention we’re officially helping make a reality along with the great folks over at Pit of Horror, so I thought it was high time for some new info.
Over the weekend we got the great news that Fox Atomic has officially signed on to have a booth at Fear Fest, featuring a ton of goodies from The Hills Have Eyes 2, which, as we first told you here, will be opening Friday, March 23rd, the same day Fear Fest kicks off! Not too shabby, eh?
Of course a panel featuring mutants and others from the sequel is being worked on (so far Michael Bailey Smith is the only confirmation, but more are coming) along with some other surprises, so be sure to keep your eyes open for more info soon! We’ll also be making some official announcements regarding more attendees in the coming weeks, and I can guarantee you’re not going to want to miss ’em.
Along with Pit of Horror, Dread Central is presenting Fear Fest in Mesquite, Texas, the largest horror convention the Lone Star State has ever seen, this March 23rd-25th! Guests so far include all four Leatherfaces, Barbara (Re-Animator, From Beyond) Crampton, Tony (Candyman) Todd, Feast director John Gulager and writers Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan, a ton of Jasons and Michael Myerses, and a badass Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original) cast reunion. And of course, the crown jewel of Fear Fest: Guest of Honor Tobe Hooper! Click here for all the info you could ever want about how to make sure you don’t miss the first of what we hope will be many susccesful horror conventions across the country!
