It’s that time again. Texas Frightmare Weekend! TFW takes place this weekend, April 29-May 1, at the Hyatt Regency DFW hotel in Dallas/Ft. Worth and is one of the biggest and best horror conventions in Texas. Countless celebrities from the world of horror, panels, parties, vendors and all around horror geek out fun. Presented in association with Fangoria Magazine, TFW is celebrating their 11th year and we highly recommend this event for every horror fan in Texas and beyond.
As it is our duty to support and promote Texas horror, Blood Over Texas and Blood Over Texas Radio will definitely be on site with tons of TFW coverage. Whether you’re lucky enough to attend the convention or if you’re stuck at home taking care of business, we got ‘ya covered. There are several ways you can join in the fun with us so let’s get down to the evil plans.
ROAMERS: All weekend we will be roaming the show taking video, talking to horror fans and generally enjoying the horror. We have some questions for you Texas fans, so stop us — or come to our Meat & Greet (more on that later) — and you could be on our May episode of B.O.T. Radio. The episode will be a special TFW recap show with a secret surprise celebrity interview and feedback from Texas horror fans at TFW. The show will be released on May, Friday the 13th! If you haven’t yet, subscribe to the show on iTunes, Stitcher and listen to it directly on our site. You can follow us and all of our TFW shenanigans all weekend on our social media sites. They will originate on our Instagram account and will then replicated on Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Follow us to follow the fun!
GETTING HAMMERED ON FRIDAY: Ever wanted to see our drunken podcast segment, Hammered Horror, taped live and in person? Here’s your chance. We did this last year (see the video) and we’re carrying on the tradition with the movie, Getting Schooled. The screening starts at 8pm and ends somewhere around 10. Shelly Dread and Bunny Voodoo will be sitting in on the screening and plan on being hammered by the time the movie is over. Just in time to tape the segment live — right after the movie, around 10ish. The location of the taping will most likely be in front of the step and repeat again (you know, that press wall thing that is covered in TFW logos). The trick is, we don’t know exactly where the step and repeat will be this year. So we’ll have to wait until we get there to let you now exactly where to meet us. You can stay tuned to our Instagram account for the specifics. Come watch the movie with us and follow us after for a live taping. Lot’s of fun!
MEAT & GREET ON SATURDAY: After the floor closes on Saturday, come have a drink with us at the lobby bar, Aces, and meat the B.O.T. crew, your fellow B.O.T. members and your horror peers. Bunny, Bradley, Eric, Fernie and Shelly will be on hand to talk shop and geek out together. We’ll be finding a nice dark corner to set up and have a casual meet up. Just look for our spooky faces (shown above).
AFTER THE BLOODSHED: Stay tuned for our TFW recap video (will be released on YouTube) and our TFW recap podcast episode after the blood has been cleaned up from the convention floor and the monsters have gone back into the shadows. Keep an eye on the site and our social media for notifications.
We hope to see you Texas horror fans at the bloodiest weekend in Texas in a few days!
