Texas Frightmare Weekend: Exclusive First Look At Amazing New Mondo Posters And Screening Details

The 13th annual horror con takes place this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Comments

Texas Frightmare Weekend is one of the most popular horror movie events on the calendar, and this year's convention will be the biggest one yet. The event is now in its thirteenth year, and fans attending the convention in Dallas-Fort Worth can enjoy two big classic horror movie cast reunions, as well as buy some fantastic new posters from poster specialists Mondo.

The casts of the '80s favorites Hellraiser and Child's Play will be getting together to introduce and discuss those much-loved movies. In addition, the new Mondo posters feature such classic films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Big Trouble in Little China, A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, Nightbreed, and Child's Play 2. They will be available exclusively when doors of Texas Frightmare officially open at 6 PM on Friday, May 4, and any remaining posters will go on sale online after the convention. Check all the posters out exclusively below, with full details of the artists and how many will be available at the end of this story.

These two special screenings will kick off Texas Frightmare on Thursday, May 3. The Child's Play 30th anniversary screening includes actors Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Catherine Hicks, plus VFX expert Kevin Yagher, in person for a special post-movie Q&A. Hellraiser, meanwhile, screens later that night and will feature the reunion of the actors who play the movie's terrifying Cenobites, namely Doug Bradley, Simon Bamford, Nicholas Vince, and Barbie Wilde. Get your tickets for Child's Play here and Hellraiser here.

The convention itself takes place at the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport, but these cast reunion screenings are happening at the Alamo Drafthouse Las Colinas, which is the latest addition to the Drafthouse family of theaters. The specific location of the theater has an extra horror link too, as it is located on John Carpenter Freeway. Although the road is named after a Texas businessman, rather than the revered horror director, the theater's creative team realized that this was too good an opportunity to pass up.

As a result, the theater has an interchangeable photo opp wall that features various homages to some of Carpenter’s most iconic films, such as Halloween and The Thing. There's also a complete Carpenter-themed Mondo poster gallery lining the various hallways of the theater. Check out the image below:
