Texas Frightmare is this weekend, and Mixmaster has all the info you need about the three-day event, which includes a prom where Anthony Michael Hall will be in attendance, and a reunion of the cast of They Live. If that's not enough to get you excited, I'm not sure what's running through your veins, but I am sure there's a movie about it this weekend. The poster was designed by Rue Morgue magazine's Ghoulish Gary Pullin.
In addition to films with titles like Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies and Nail Gun Massacre, there's music too: Patricia Vonne performs Saturday in the "Frightmare Lounge." It's also the debut screening of Texas musician Jesse Dayton's film, Zombex. And who could forget when They Live's hero "Rowdy" Roddy Piper tried his hand at music?
