Splatterfest (September 27th - October 1st, 2011 at the Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks) sounds like it's going to be crazy fun this year. I'll let the press release speak for itself:
MICHAEL BIEHN & EVIL DEAD TRILOGY AT SPLATTERFEST!
Houston – August 30th, 2011 - SplatterFest is excited to announce MICHAEL BIEHN, star of Aliens, Terminator, The Rock, The Abyss and more, will appear at SplatterFest with his directorial debut THE VICTIM, as well as with the World Premiere of his latest film JACOB, September 30th!
JENNIFER BLANC-BIEHN, star of the Victim and the upcoming Puncture with Chris Evans, will also be a guest of SplatterFest.
Adding to the excitement, the EVIL DEAD TRILOGY (Army of Darkness, Evil Dead, and Evil Dead 2) will be screening alongside Bruce Campbell’s appearance Saturday night, October 1st at the Alamo Drafthouse Westoaks in Houston Texas.
Bruce Campbell will appear during the day and sign autographs (for a fee), as well as Q&A session on Oct. 1st. Michael Biehn will appear Sept. 30th. SplatterFest VIP holders will get priority access to Bruce, Michael, the Evil Dead Trilogy, and to all SplatterFest screenings. For tickets and information, please visit http://SplatterFest.com
SplatterFest kicks off with it’s short film competition screenings Tuesday September 27th & 28th, followed by feature film screenings the 29th & 30th, including Michael Biehn’s directorial debut THE VICTIM, and the World Premiere of JACOB, and culminates with the Evil Dead Trilogy screening Saturday night.
The short film competition is always fierce, and we're going to get the EVIL DEAD trilogy with Bruce himself there. Plus Michael Biehn is bringing THE VICTIM, a grindhouse film that I thought was a lot of fun. I'm also eager to see JACOB as well. But Splatterfest this year sounds like a can't-miss event for the Houston area. We don't get many geek events like this, so any time something like this comes along I'm going to report about it. Can't wait!
