I got a press release today about something awesome: the first-ever Housecore Horror Film Festival, which goes down in Austin, Texas, this fall.
World-famous heavy metal musician Philip H. Anselmo and internationally renowned, best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell have teamed up to create the ultimate underground, three-day horror and heavy metal fan event that will combine live concerts from some of the biggest bands in metal and hard rock with more than 70 screenings of horror, true crime, and heavy metal films, music videos, and more — and special guest appearances from three of the world’s most revered underground directors of horror.
Damn, that’s a big-ass sentence.
The Housecore Horror Film Festival will take over the entire Emo’s complex in the newly revitalized area of East Austin for three days of shock and roll.
It’ll feature seven screens, which will display more than 70 horror, true crime, and heavy metal film screenings, including feature-length films, short films, documentaries, classic horror films, world premieres, music videos, vintage and faux movie trailers, and more. As darkness descends each night, a dozen heavy metal and hard rock acts, handpicked by Anselmo himself, will hit the stage.
The lineup will boast Down, Crowbar, and Phil Anselmo and the Illegals.
