Texas Frightmare Weekend

Texas Frightmare Weekend is a three day horror convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex which had it’s premiere event in 2006. The event has been presented by Arrow Video since 2012. True to its motto, “The Southwest’s Premier Horror Convention”, our goal is to provide fans with an unrivaled experience by celebrating all aspects of genre films. Texas Frightmare Weekend hosts celebrity appearances, autograph signings, screenings, exclusive parties and horror memorabilia vendors from all over the country. The event is also extremely proud to have featured the rising talents of many Texas “Frightmakers” in screenings, panel discussions and Q & A’s.In 2023 the event will move to the Irving Convention Center & Toyota Music Factory to make room for its growing fan base.

After humble beginnings at the tiny Grapevine Convention Center in Grapevine, TX, TFW (as it has begun to be called by attendees) is arguably the largest horror convention in the nation. The event draws thousands of attendees annually and has hosted genre legends such as Neve Campbell, Matthew Lillard, Brad Dourif, Danny Trejo, George A. Romero, Clive Barker, Malcom McDowell, Robert Englund, John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper, Cary Elwes and hundreds more.

This was my first Horror convention and it was a blast! My goals were to see if I could later rent out a table to sell my upcoming book, meet a variety of people in the business, and meet Neve Cambell.

Tom Savini

Tom Savini. A prosthetic make-up artist, actor, stunt performer, and film director. I know him best from the film "From Dusk Till Dawn."

"Do you like scary movies?"

Four actors from Scream were there including Neve Cambell, Matthew Lillar, Jamie Kennedy, and Skeet Ulrich. I really wish I could've met them.

My promotional gear for Hell's Play including shirt, flyers, portrait of Neve Cambell I drew, and Scream poster I was hoping to have signed. The lines for the main actors were very long and I didn't want to spend hours waiting for autographs.

Neve Cambell

I drew a picture for Neve Cambell hoping to get her attention as on the back of it was my book cover and synopsis. The line to meet her was sold out by Sat at 9AM. People had been waiting in line for hours all the while I thought I was doing good be getting there before it started. Fortunately, I still was able to meet her thanks to the drawing I did for her. I didn't get as much time with her as those waiting all day in line but enough time to say hi and give her the drawing. It really would make a great movie!

Father Evil

Father Evil is just as funny as he is scary. You can't pass this guy without him cracking jokes or if anything, giving that sinister stare he does so well.

"Wait'll they get a load of me."

Lance Henriksen

You may have seen this guy in the low budget sci-fi flick The Terminator but he's better known as "Bishop" in the Alien franchise. If that doesn't ring a bell maybe a pic of him demonstrating his knife skills to the hand of Bill Paxton will help.

Can I get an exorcist over here? Anybody?

"Ch ch ch, ah ah ah."
