The Fear Fest Guest of Honor is…

Published

on

When we announced our first-ever horror convention, being put on with the fine folks over at Pit of Horror, we had a pretty impressive list of names already set for attendance, but one very special one was being left off until all the ink was signed.

Said ink is now dry and we can officially announce that the Guest of Honor at the first annual Fear Fest will be the one and only Tobe Hooper! Hooper’s not done any conventions for a very long time so this could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fans to meet the living legend; I know I’m looking forward to it!

Tobe will be doing a Q&A, receiving a well-deserved award, and signing for fans as well as hosting a midnight screening of one of his films that’s still TBA. In a twist that shows just how much Tobe digs meeting his fans, he will be signing for free for the convention! Unheard of!

But that’s not all, kids. New additions to the guest roster includes Ari Lehman (Friday the 13th), Stu Charno (Friday the 13th Part 2), and Lee Perkins (KatieBird, Carnies); and, as if that weren’t enough, Fear Fest will be the first convention to feature every single living Leatherface: Andrew Bryniarski, Bill Johnson, and new additions R. A. Mihailoff, and Gunnar Hansen!

Fear Fest takes place this March 23rd-25th in Mesquite, TX so be sure you’re a part of it! Click here for the fest’s official site to see the rest of the guest list and get your tickets now, and be sure to make us your friend on MySpace!

Rest in Peace: Dolores O’Riordan

Published

on

Sad and shocking news has come in from the music world as Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries, has been found dead at the all too young age of just 46.

According to the Associated Press, the singer’s publicist, Lindsey Holmes, confirmed she died in London, where she was recording. “No further details are available at this time,” Holmes said, adding that the singer’s family was “devastated” by the news.

London’s Metropolitan Police were summoned to a hotel just after 9:00 AM today. As of now her death is classified as “unexplained.”

During her career, O’Riordan provided music for the short film Z, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Evilenko, and many more films and television projects. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Dolores’ family members, friends, and constituents.

If you, if you could return. Don’t let it burn. Don’t let it fade.
