We all love a good horror movie, whether it's from years ago or one that just came out, they have a way of entertaining us unlike any other genre. So much so, that it's hard to not put ourselves in the shoes of the actors, facing endless evil from the most iconic villains. Now, you can get up-close and personal with the actors who played those very villains, as well as others who have actually starred in the movies! Crazy, fun and terrifying are exactly how I'd describe the Cult Classic Convention in Bastrop.
The Cult Classic Convention just announced an hour ago that their next horror convention will be returning to Texas from February 14th to 16th this upcoming winter. The con will be taking place in Bastrop, Texas, not far from Austin. This convention happens almost every year and brings the horror to the wild Texas cult classic fanatics. If you love classic horror movies, or even just horror in general, you have to attend this insane event. There's nothing else like it!
The event always brings in incredible guests such as past guests R.A. Mihailoff who played Leatherface in Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Ed Neal, Bill Johnson and more. The featured guests will be more than ready to meet you... or scare you to death, whichever you prefer.
You can typically purchase a weekend pass, a pass for one of the three days, or a VIP ticket! Normal day to weekend passes is normally around $15-40. If you want to go the VIP route it's a little pricier, but for the added thrills and chills, it's totally worth it!
The convention takes place nearby tons of Texas Chainsaw Massacre landmarks, including the gas station where an extra terrifying scene took place and the bridge from the sequel! All only a short walk from the convention and completely free to visit. The gas station even serves food in case you're hungry after a long day of gutting! Oops, clearly I meant exploring.
