Texas Frightmare Weekend is a huge horror convention that happens annually in Dallas, TX. Although I have a feeling that using the context clues you probably figured something along these lines out, as the event’s title contains “fright,” “mare,” and “Texas” – Texas Frightmare Weekend certainly does not try to hide what it is.

The horror convention allows you to see and meet horror icons, as well as many faces currently working in the genre (this year John Carpenter and George Romero will be there), plus there is a lot of memorabilia to check out and purchase, and of course new horror films are screened. One movie that horror fans will be able to see at TFW is 2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS, as it was just announced that the film is set to have its North American premiere at Frightmare Weekend.

2001 MANIACS: FIELDS OF SCREAMS is a sequel to 2001 MANIACS, which is about some smalltown Southern “maniacs” violently taking care of some college kids and a few others. 2001 MANIACS was a remake of the 1960s film TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!, which was directed by a gore legend, Herschell Gordon Lewis.

Here is the sequel’s synopsis:

“This time around the Southern residents of Pleasant Valley take their cannibalistic Guts N’ Glory Jamboree on the road to Iowa where they encounter spoiled Northern heiresses Rome and Tina Sheraton and the cast and crew of their ‘Road Rascals’ reality show. Performing ‘The Bloodiest Show on Earth,’ our Southern Maniacs prove to be more than ratings killers.”

Texas Frightmare Weekend takes place April 30th to May 2nd, but the screening of 2001 MANIACS is actually happening on the 29th, the day before the convention is set to kick off officially.
