Horror fans of the southwest, it's that time of year again!
Texas Frightmare Weekend, the southwest's biggest horror convention is just around the corner, and this year they are bringing some awesome film screenings to the party. Every year has gotten bigger and bigger, with 2017 looking like it's going to be the biggest event yet. Not only are convention regulars like Malcolm McDowall, Udo Kier, Claudio Simonetti, Tom "Fright Night" Holland, and Keith David on the schedule, there are also some marquee guests making rare appearances like Dario Argento in his first visit, as well as Wilford Brimley, Frank Henenlotter, and wrestling legends Ric Flair and Sting!
The guests are great, but I'm more about the merch and the movies, and this year's film line-up is one of the best TFW has had in years. Check out the gallery below for more details on the amazing film line up this year straight from TFW's press release:
