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!
