2014 Texas Frightmare Lineup Boasting One Hell of a Lineup!

7 April 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

I don’t find myself crying in agony over having to miss conventions much, but judging from the lineup to this year’s Texas Frightmare,…yeah, I’m bummed. Boasting everything from a Terminator/Terminator 2 reunion, A Night Of The Demons reunion, the West Memphis 3‘s Jason Baldwin, a full blown Blair Witch Project reunion and Dr. f’n Giggles himself, Larry Drake! (I’m an unabashed Dr Giggles fanatic). Making the con even more appealing, is the fact that one of most unique bands around these days, Ghost, is doing a special performance at the con. Seriously, if you’re in the Texas area…get the hell over there from May 2-4, and send me some pics, Please! For more info/tickets, read the press release below!
