Cult Classic Convention

Halloween comes a whole month early to Bastrop with the inaugural Cult Classic Convention, featuring vendors and celebrity guests from a handful of horror and cult movies, not to mention one special attendee some might consider a bit fucked-up at this type of event. First the film talent: Scheduled to appear are genre favorites like Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), Angela Jones (Children of the Corn V), and a host of actors from the 1974 original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, including Edwin Neal (Hitchhiker), William Vail (Kirk), Allen Danziger (Jerry) and John Dugan (Grandfather). Since the original Texas Chainsaw was shot in the area, attendees might find some time to do their own tracking of fictional killer Leatherface around the I-35 corridor, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Then, for whatever reason, Cult Classic invited Buell Wesley Frazier, the man who drove Lee Harvey Oswald to the Texas School Book Depository on November 22, 1963, the day Oswald assassinated U.S. President John F. Kennedy. If this was a history or true-crime conference, sure. But a horror convention? In bad taste, organizers.
