TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE 40th Anniversary Official Reunion hosted by Housecore Horror Film Festival!!!

TXCM Official 40th anniversary reunion HHFF

Philip Anselmo’s Housecore™ Horror Film Festival announces exclusive

40th Anniversary Reunion of

 THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE

Iconic Texas-Based Horror Film’s Living Cast To See Film Together

For First Time in Austin, Texas

Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Allen Danzinger, William Vail,

Teri McMinn, John Dugan, Edward Guinn

AUSTIN, Texas—It’s less than six months before the return of Philip Anselmo and Corey Mitchell’s horror and heavy metal groundbreaking event, the Housecore™ Horror Film Festival.

In 2013, a phone call between Mitchell and Anselmo led to the brilliant idea to bring Italian soundtrack maestros, Goblin, to the United States for the first time to score Dario Argento’s classic giallo SUSPIRIA. It led to two nights of Goblin performances and the band’s first-ever United States tour after more than 40 years of existence.

In 2014, yet another phone call led to yet another crazy idea to make HHFF even bigger this year. Mitchell was speaking with HHFF staffer Nic “Machine” Brown about what films to screen at this year’s festival and, of course, the conversation immediately honed in on the 40th anniversary of the most important film in Texas history, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Mitchell told Brown that it was imperative that we bring TXCM back to its old stomping grounds of Austin, Texas. Brown agreed and set out to find everyone in the film that was still alive and asked if they would join Anselmo in his own world of mayhem. ALL of the living members of the main cast agreed to appear at HHFF ’14 and they include:

GUNNAR HANSEN (“Leatherface”)

MARILYN BURNS (“Sally Hardesty”)

EDWIN NEAL (“The Hitchhiker”)

ALLEN DANZINGER (“Jerry”)

WILLIAM VAIL (“Kirk”)

TERI MCMINN (“Pam”)

JOHN DUGAN (“Grandpa”)

ED GUINN (“CattleTruck Driver”)

Gunnar Hansen declared, “I am looking forward to coming to Austin in October for the Housecore Horror Film Festival. It is always exciting to watch TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE in a theatre with an enthusiastic audience. But this time will be extra special – it will be the first time that all of us in the cast will see the movie together.”

Scream queen legend Marilyn Burns added, “I am looking forward to the 40th year reunion in Austin where it all began! Who would have ever imagined TXCM is still going strong?”

Anselmo is blown away that the entire living cast will be at HHFF. “TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is such an incredibly important film, not just horror film, and to have all of these amazing people come to Housecore Horror and share this incredible anniversary with me and all of our friends is simply mind-blowing!”

Co-promoter Tammy Moore of Metal Morgue Productions added, “It’s a real honor that the cast has chosen the HHFF as the location for their historic reunion to celebrate such an iconic horror film. We’re thrilled!”

Expect the cast to eagerly participate in supporting their film. They will be at HHFF all weekend and participate on panels about the film, a Q&A after the screening of the film, as well as signing autographs and taking pictures with their fans.

Many more bands, special guests, films, and special events to be announced over the next few months.

***A limited number of 199 badges are currently on sale for $199. Once these run out, the price will increase.

HHFF 2014 badges can be purchased here at Eventbrite.

HHFF’S 2013 1st ANNUAL (?) ROT-SCARS NOMINEES AND WINNERS

Philip, Johnny Edwards, and Rot-ScarLast Sunday, the Housecore™ Horror Film Festival unveiled the 1st Rot-Scars nominees and winners inside Emo’s in front of nearly 1,500 excited fest-goers. Festival co-founder Corey Mitchell declared of the unique setting: “These filmmakers deserve a chance to be treated like rock stars, so what better place to reward them than on stage with the likes of Eyehategod, Philip Anselmo, and Goblin?”

The Rot-Scars, whose unique design are the brainchild of sculptor Johnny Edwards (pictured above with HHFF co-founder Philip Anselmo), were handed out to several winners by awards show hosts Chuck Loesch of Austin’s 101X’s “No Control” radio program and Judas Priestess vocalist Militia Vox. The rowdy duo took over between each act that graced the big stage during the final night of HHFF. They were accompanied by the frightening strains of death metal piano performed by San Antonio’s Goatcraft.

After each winner was announced, those who were present were summoned to the stage in front of an incredible lectern/podium designed specifically for HHFF and the Rot-Scars by Michigan’s Ryanne Clifton and Jerry Dennis. The skeletal-film-reels-encased-in-barbed-wire-and-steel-podium was the perfect emblem for the entire HHFF. Winners were asked to down a shot of a Black Tooth Grin, a creation of the late Dimebag Darrell, and to sing one line from a heavy metal song, oftentimes with hilarious results.

The first annual (?) Rot-Scars were a huge hit as it kept the crowd from getting bored during band set changeovers, gave the audience something exciting to cheer for, and rewarded some amazing new talented filmmakers. The future of horror is in excellent hands and those hands left Texas clutching well-deserved Rot-Scars for their efforts.

Here are the nominees and winners of the 2013 Housecore™ Horror Film Festival Rot-Scars:
