The man behind some of the greatest titles in B-movie history, Roger Corman, is indeed gracing the Texas Frightmare Weekend, and his schedule has been finalized. With the additional good news that Mr. Corman has graciously cleared his schedule to allow for an extra hour to his appearance. So one of the legends of genre will now be appearing for five hours.
Here’s the complete schedule:
Saturday 4:00 pm-4:30 pm Roger Corman Q&A
Saturday 4:30-6:00 pm- Autograph Session
Sunday 10am-12pm, 1:30-3:00-Autograph Sessions
As is the nature of conventions, sometimes guests can’t make their scheduled appearances. As is the case with Brian Austin Green, who will be unable to appear on Sunday May 1st. However, he is STILL appearing with the rest of the CHROMESKULL: Laid to Rest 2 crew on Friday April 29th and Saturday April 30th. So plenty of chances to ask him how he kept his hair so flawless in 90210.
And, unfortunately, Michael Felsher has had to cancel. Which means he and his Frightmare 101 class that was scheduled for Saturday at 2:00 pm has been cancelled.
In news of the awesome kind, TFW has announced a correction in regards to Sid Haig’s photos policy. Originally it was announced in the schedule that “pics on your camera at guest’s autograph table are free with purchase of an autograph.” They have now corrected this and stated “Sid will actually take a picture with you at his table for free-whether you buy an autograph or not! We apologize for this mistake!” Very cool on the part of Sid, and kudos to TFM on getting the word out on the error.

The creepiest man in film
Cult film writer/director and pencil moustache-revivalist John Waters delivers a personal recommendation for Rue Morgue readers in the new trailer for the May issue of Rue Morgue #111! Proponents of hairy-yet-refined upper lips will also want to take note of the exclusive close-ups we got of his trademark mouthbrow.
Get a peek now with the following Rue Morgue issue #111 trailer.
That’s a lot of tan and mustache grooming.
