A while back, we told you about a trio of screenings that were going to take place at the great Texas Frightmare Weekend (here). Already sounding like a fun time, the gang from the event have now released some additional info, complete with more screenings and some awesome additions to their already badass lineup. Check it out!!
“Texas Frightmare Weekend is back with a vengeance May 3rd through the 5th, offering up additional celebrity guests, nearly 100 incredible vendors, and more new films than ever! Today, our 2013 extravaganza proudly welcomes Gary Jones’ AXE GIANT: THE WRATH OF PAUL BUNYAN and star Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams, himself!), who joins our ever-growing list of top horror celebrities descending upon The Hyatt Regency DFW next month!
On Friday, May 3rd, the mammoth festival opens its doors at 6PM (5PM for VIPs), welcoming bone-chilling panels on PET SEMATARY, Gary and Jake Busey, and more! Films that evening include CHRISTMAS WITH THE DEAD at 6PM, the aforementioned AXE GIANT at 10PM, and JACOB and SCREAM PARK at midnight!
