That's One Scary Effing Line-Up They've Put Together for Frightmare Film Fest
Good God. We're slowly but surely working our way through the Dallas International Film Festival offerings -- though, from the sound of the press release that just landed in the in-box, we'd best hustle. Why come? Only a couple of weeks after that fest wraps is the Texas Frightmare Film Festival, which will be held in conjunction with the Texas Frightmare Weekend to be held at the Sheraton Grand Plaza in Irving beginning April 30.
The Frightmare Film Fest starts a couple of days earlier, April 28, with most of the screenings taking place at the Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville. After the jump you'll find the complete line-up of offerings, which includes the U.S. premiere of Tim Sullivan's 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams, horror legend George Romero's Survival of the Dead and Adam Green's chilling Frozen, a surprise Sundance Film Festival hit in January about three skiers trapped on an abandoned ski resort's not-effing-working ski lift one horrible night. This is why I do not ski.
And, for those not keeping score, the Texas Frightmare Weekend has lined up a most estimable guest list, which includes: director John Carpenter and the cast of Christine, Lois Lane herself Margot Kidder, Greatest American Hero William Katt, 2001: A Space Odyssey's Keir Dullea, Julian Sands and Lance Henriksen. No, seriously: Margot Kidder.
