Monsters, honey badger caretakers and chainsaw enthusiasts swarmed the Hyatt Regency for Texas Frightmare Weekend, the area's annual celebration of all things gore. The eighth installment of TFW featured two Buseys, Danny Trejo and loads of pulseless and soon-to-be pulseless Walking Dead cast members.
