TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND

TEXAS FRIGHTMARE WEEKEND PRESENTED BY ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT IN ASSOCIATION WITH RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE ANNOUNCES

TEXAS PREMIERE OF LUCKY MCKEE’s “THE WOMAN” WITH MCKEE and the film’s stars POLLYANNA MCINTOSH, SEAN BRIDGERS and SHYLA MOLHUSEN in attendance

WORLD PREMIERE OF BRYAN T. JAYNES’ “BOGGY CREEK” with JAYNES in attendance



DALLAS, TX, April 13, 2011 – Texas Frightmare Weekend (April 28 – May 1) announced the Texas premiere of Lucky McKee’s controversial film THE WOMAN at Studio Movie Grill (1600 South Stemmons, Lewisville, TX) on Thursday, April 28 at 9:30PM. The presentation will include red carpet entrances by McGee as well as the film’s stars Pollyanna McIntosh, Sean Bridgers and Shyla Molhusen.

Also announced were the slate of screenings highlighted by the World Premiere of Brian T. Jaynes’ BOGGY CREEK. The film delivers an updated take on the notorious and frightful Boggy Creek legend. Jaynes will attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A. TFW will also feature an impressive lineup of filmmaker panels including one-on-one discussions with horror and genre legend Roger Corman, fan favorites like Robert Englund, Angus Scrimm and Don Coscarelli and talks with cast members from the SAW films and THE BOONDOCK SAINTS, among others.

McKee’s THE WOMAN follows the horror that results when a successful country lawyer captures a wild woman in the woods and forces his family to help him “civilize” her. The film’s premiere screening earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival turned into a controversial event after one audience member hurt themselves trying to exit the theater and another audience member accosted McKee as the director attempted to begin a post screening Q&A. Both people had become completely distressed and upset by the intense content and violence in the film, as did several others that the film instantly became one of the film fest’s most buzz worthy titles. THE WOMAN also stars Angela Bettis and Lauren Ashley Carter.

THE WOMAN also owes the casting of Shyla Molhusen to TFW as McKee’s father discovered the daughter of Art With Designs Latex owner Kurt Molhusen at last year’s event. Molhusen has been a vendor at the convention each year since it’s inception in 2006. The screening of THE WOMAN will be preceded by Andrew van der Houten’s OFFSPRING at 7:00PM. The tale of a family of primitive cannibals that wreck havoc on a suburban community, THE OFFSPRING was the prequel for THE WOMAN. Van der Houten will attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A. The Lionsgate Home Entertainment release is available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Texas Frightmare Film Festival Director Loyd Cryer said, "It is really exciting for us to present the Texas premiere of THE WOMAN at Texas Frightmare Weekend. We have long been fans of Lucky McKee’s films and since Shyla was discovered here, we could not be more proud of our association with what we think is his most audacious and affecting work yet. And following films like MAY, RED and his Masters of Horror classic, “Sick Girl”, that is saying something.”

They join other high profile recent additions including a very rare stateside appearance by AUDITION star Eihi Shiina and Japanese director and special effects master Yoshihiro Nishimura (TOKYO GORE POLICE). They will attend a special screening of their film, HELLDRIVER at the Sheraton Grand Hotel on Friday, April 29 at 8:00PM.

Along with Corman, Englund, and PHANTASM’s Scrimm and Coscarelli, key attendees will include influential horror and genre author and filmmaker Clive Barker (HELLRAISER, MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN), independent filmmaking legend Roger Corman and Tom Six and Dieter Laser, the director and star of last year’s hit and much-talked about cult film THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE and Malcolm McDowell.

Other notable attendees include; NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’S Robert Englund; Barker’s HELLRAISER stars Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence; the SAW franchise trio of Cary Elwes, Costas Mandylor and Shawnee Smith; THE BOONDOCK SAINTS duo, Sean Patrick Flannery and Norman Reedus; 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY’S Kier Dullea; “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and “Beverly Hills 90210” star Brian Austin Green, and many others.

Texas Frightmare Weekend will also feature the 4th Annual Zombie Walk sponsored by Moxley Manor as well as the 4th Annual Hearse and Shock Rod Show.

The Texas Frightmare Film Festival and Texas Frightmare Weekend will run April 29 – May 1, 2010. Passes and tickets are currently on sale online at www.TexasFrightmareWeekend.com.
