This just in: Peter Criss, a founding member of the super group KISS, will be in attendance at the FANGORA-sponsored 2016 Texas Frightmare Weekend! This event is will go on Friday, 29 April 2016 to Sunday, 1 May 2016 in Dallas, Texas.
Criss, as well as KISS, have forever been associated with the macabre – which often manifests itself in the horror genre – so when former Fangoria editor Chris Alexander talked about his love for the legendary “shock rock” band this sparked the idea of incorporating them [KISS] into the event.
In 2014 Ace Frehley made an appearance at ‘Frightmare’ and after that the con had an overwhelming request for an appearance from Mr. P Criss. After much effort his attendance at this event has been secured. Texas Frightmare Weekend founder Loyd Cryer noted, “Our event has always been about fulfilling fans’ requests and we are honored that Peter has agreed to attend.”
Peter Criss will appear at the event all three days providing fans with many opportunities for photo-ops and autographs. Premiums Passes and Tickets are available now and can be purchased at: www.texasfrightmareweekend.com.
Also appearing at the this year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend is: George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Tony Todd (Candyman), James Remar (The Warriors), Matthew Lillard (Thir13en Ghosts), and many others.
This year’s ‘Frightmare’ should prove to be a premiere event. It will be filled with appearances, screenings, photo-ups, signings, parties, and vendors GORE-lore!
