FANGORIA is excited to announce that we’re joining forces with seminal fear convention Texas Frightmare Weekend as its official presenting sponsor! The 2014 edition will be held May 2-4 in Dallas, TX for its ninth year as the Southwest’s premiere horror get-together and film festival.
2014 marks the 35th uninterrupted year of FANGORIA in business, and this year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend coincides with the magazine’s 333rd issue. Editor-in-chief Chris Alexander says, “Fango is beyond thrilled to be part of Texas Frightmare Weekend this year, and to have the opportunity and honor to share our mutual enthusiasm for horror and dark-fantasy filmmaking and the dedicated culture that surrounds it. It’s gonna be a blast!”
“I grew up reading FANGORIA magazine, so this is a dream partnership for me,” says the convention’s founder Loyd Cryer. “I know that many, many other horror fans cut their teeth on FANGORIA as well. So this partnership will be right at home with TFW.”
This year’s event boasts such guests as legendary director George A. Romero (DAWN OF THE DEAD, MARTIN), actor Tobin Bell (Jigsaw from the SAW series), Linda Hamilton (THE TERMINATOR, CHILDREN OF THE CORN), Linda Blair (THE EXORCIST), FANGO #331 cover boy Bill Moseley (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) and his REPO!
