HOUSECORE HORROR FESTIVAL 2015 – FIRST ROUND OF BANDS ANNOUNCED!

Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Festival Returning For Year Three

Legendary metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th -15th, 2015.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October. Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival’s success, and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year.

“I’ve got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be,” he says. “There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that’s what we’re going to do. We miss him and think about him every day.”

Bands already confirmed to play are Suffocation, Autopsy, Cripple Bastards, Nails, YOB, Eyehategod, Child Bite, Warbeast and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. “When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered,” Anselmo continues. “Nothing has changed, in that respect.”

 Tickets to go on sale soon! Stay tuned for additional announcements.

2014 ROT-SCARS WINNERS

laurelsA Special Note:

Evil geniuses and festival Co-Founders Philip Anselmo and Corey Mitchell were incredibly proud of the phenomenal lineup of filmmakers and musicians featured at the festival this year. It is not an exaggeration to say that programming this festival was no small feat. It would be an exaggeration to say that it all went seamlessly, but that’s to be expected. If you attended, we hope you had an epic, unforgettable time. We do this for you.
We all know that the weekend ended on a devastating note for which there still aren’t suitable words. To say that our hearts are shattered by the loss of Corey Mitchell is an understatement. This festival was a labor of love for him. He poured everything he had into making his final opus a special experience for everyone who attended. We’re not sure if there will ever be words to express our gratitude for and awe over his tireless efforts and seemingly infinite dedication to this beautiful beast he created. He will be missed more than he can imagine. Farewell to a most loquacious, passionate and delightfully wicked friend and colleague.
It truly takes a team to pull off an event like this. Kate Richardson, Nic Brown, Susie Winfield, Justin Giallo, Shelly Dread, Amanda Hines and the rest of the HHFF team worked tirelessly to make this come together. To all the artists, venues, vendors, production and film crews, security teams, moderators – thank you for everything you did to make this event happen. And finally, to Corey’s family:  Thank you for sharing him with us.

2014 ROT SCARS

Split_2014_masonRyan_Oliver_Restoration1

The 2nd Annual Rot Scars-Award Ceremony was the culmination of a weekend of epic film screenings and bands, and was a testament to some serious masterminding by Corey and Philip. Ten categories were selected this year, and the awards were hosted by the man behind the TXCM Reunion, Nic “Machine” Brown, and Chuck Loesch, of Austin 101X “No Control Radio.”
We’re not sure if there exists a better award show soundtrack than this one. Live scored by Author & Punisher, the ceremony also featured sets by KEN Mode, Eyehategod and Warbeast. Honorees downed Black Tooth Grins and the Co-Founders took the stage to thank the crowd and kick-off the festival grand finale of Danzig/Samhain. All in all, it was an unforgettable night.

In Memory of Corey Mitchell – Festival Co-Founder, Father & Friend

In Memory of Corey Mitchell – Housecore Horror Film Festival Co-Founder, Father & Friend

”  This is stunning. After a weekend of incredible bands, awesome horror films and masses of fantastic people, tragically, unexpectedly, and with heart-crushing reality, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, Corey Mitchell, passed away Monday, October 27th 2014, after the event ended. This is devastating on so many levels, I can’t and won’t go into how tremendous a loss Corey’s untimely death truly is. I was introduced to Corey first and foremost as a best-selling crime author, and shortly after that meeting I agreed to have him as my co-writer of an unfinished novel I’d been working on.

  It was his idea to create a horror and film festival that would became The Housecore Horror Festival. He had a vision, and no one worked harder than him to see the event through. But forget festivals. Forget books. We lost a great friend. From all of us here at Housecore Records, we extend our utmost condolences to his wife, Audra, and his two beautiful young daughters. This is devastating on countless personal levels, and I’m finding it difficult to type these lines. We lost a brother. We lost a great man with a passion for everything that we love. He will be unfathomably missed… RIP Corey. His legacy will never be forgotten, nor will his friendship. With supremely heavy hearts, we mourn.

Sincerely – Philip H. Anselmo “
