Surprise! Tom Savini Returns To Texas Frightmare Weekend
That’s right guys and ghouls, the man, the Godfather of Gore, Tom Savini returns to Texas Frightmare Weekend!
Savini, in his early career, was a combat photographer in the Vietnam war. Man, that shit is brutal as can be. You gotta respect anyone who is willing to put his life on the line to represent a moment in film!
He eventually started dabbling in cinematic makeup and special effects. If you are a horror film lover then you have seen his work, I can promise that. He provided the grisly effects in early cult classic films Dawn of the Dead and Friday the 13th.
Savini made his directorial debut in 1990 with the reboot of Night of the Living Dead. For the typical mainstream fan base, they know him from his film roles.
Tom was originally scheduled to be at Texas Frightmare Weekend but was forced to cancel due to a filming scheduling conflict. Well, apparently that schedule has been moved up. So Texas Frightmare Weekend just got a helluva lot fresher, because Savini is going to be in attendance next week!
