Philip Anselmo added this statement on the lineup and festival, “For a cat like myself, bringing in all of these killer bands to play the Housecore Horror Film Festival is nothing but pure pleasure. I’d like to thank all of the bands from all over the globe that are on the bill. I feel like we’ve compiled an extremely versatile line-up of established acts, as well as some killer up-and-comers. I’d also like to give a huge “thumbs-up” to all of the Austin, Texas bands that will be a huge part of this crazy event, because it seems these bands fly way too far below the radar. As for what bands I’m most excited about? I don’t need to call out specific bands…just look at the list yourself and get pumped! I hope everyone who plans on attending the Housecore Horror Film Festival is digging on the band line-ups, as well as the films, like I am. Let’s have a blast!”
The Housecore Horror Film Festival will take over the entire Emo’s complex in the newly revitalized area of East Austin for three days (Oct 24-27th) of shock and roll! It will 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! It’s a must for all horror and metal fans! I got to get there somehow!
