Alice Cooper, known for being the first to mix hard rock, horror and theatrics is making a headline appearance at the Southwest's premier horror convention, Texas Frightmare Weekend.

"We're proud to bring in this shock rock icon that not only defined theatrical rock performances and has many, many classic songs and albums but also had roles in horror films like 'Prince of Darkness' and 'Freddy's Dead'," said Texas Frightmare Weekend founder Loyd Cryer.

"Alice Cooper is an originator and an innovator and we are proud to have him as our very special guest."

The event, which will be held May 1-3 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Irving, Texas, will not only feature Cooper, but dozens of other horror celebrities ranging from Linda Blair of "The Exorcist" to Fairuza Balk of "The Craft" and Marc Price from '80s hard rock horror thriller "Trick or Treat".

Franchises represented by celebrities will include "Halloween", "Friday the 13th", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Howling", and "House of 1,000 Corpses", among others.

"We know horror fans have diverse tastes and we always try to accommodate that because we are horror fans ourselves. This is going to be our best convention yet," Cryer said.
