Details on the Texas Frightmare Weekend Emerge!
Any horror fan worth his or her weight in gore should be amped up for George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, and if you’re planning on attending the Texas Frightmare Weekend, that’s exactly what you’re going to be seeing. That and so much more!
TFW Film Festival 2010 will kick off Wednesday, April 28 and Thursday, April 29 at the Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville. The festival will then move to the convention site (the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Irving) Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1.
"We've always hosted a mini film festival during our convention," said fest director Loyd Cryer. "Recent Texas Frightmare Weekends have begun with theatrical screenings of Night of the Living Dead and Texas Chain Saw Massacre, so adding two additional nights of theatrical screenings is a natural progression."
The centerpiece selection of TFW Film Festival 2010 is Survival of the Dead -- the sixth film in George A. Romero's 40-year zombie odyssey. More than a dozen official selections, to be announced shortly, will be showcased nightly from 6:30 p.m. through midnight. Texas filmmaker Parrish Randall will emcee.
Be sure to check out the official Texas Frightmare site for ticket information and the full guest list for the convention, which already includes the likes of John Carpenter, George Romero, Doug Bradley, Keir Dullea, Elvira, Sid Haig, and Lance Henriksen.
