I have friends I can crash with and I have airline miles I can use, so you just might see me at this. Are you a Suspiria fan in Texas? Then you’re in luck! Housecore Horror Film Festival, “the ultimate 3-day, underground fan event celebrating the twisted line where horror films and heavy metal meet”, just came out swinging. Today, festival creators – Pantera frontman Philip H. Anselmo and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell – announce that influential Italian progressive rock band Goblin will be performing their iconic score to Dario Argento’s 1977 horror masterpiece, Suspiria, live at the fest.
Marking their first-ever performance in North America, Goblin’s horror rock maestros Maurizio Guarini and Claudio Simonetti will fulfill fans’ dreams and nightmares as they perform their notably eerie soundtrack for Suspiria live during a screening of the classic and revered horror masterpiece.

It has been announced that Down, Crowbar, and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals will be performing at the inaugural year of the Housecore Horror Film Festival (HHFF), which takes place Oct. 25th-27th in Austin, TX.
Philip Anselmo (Pantera, Superjoint Ritual) teamed up with Bloody-Disgusting’s own Corey Mitchell to create the ultimate horror and metal festival, which will combine several heavy metal and hard rock acts with over 70 screenings of horror, true crime, music video, and more. There will also be guest appearances from many underground horror directors.
There will also be a Haunted Corridor that will be constructed by a special Texas haunted house team that received creative design input from Anselmo, who is one of the co-founders of the House Of Shock haunted house in New Orleans, LA.
Film submissions are currently open here. The official website also launched today.

Pantera and Down singer Phil Anselmo and true crime best-seller Corey Mitchell have teamed up to bring you Anselmo’s autobiography, tentatively titled Mouth For War: Pantera, Pain, & Pride – Heavy Metal Highs, Drugged Out Lows, & The Battle For My Life. Agent Jeff Herman had been shopping the book around and the proposal was picked up by Jeremie Ruby-Strauss at Gallery/Simon & Schuster. The book is tentatively scheduled for a 2014 release.
The description states that the book is, “a no-holds barred look inside of Philip’s brain, his history with Pantera, the loss of his best-friend, Dimebag Darrell, and an unflinching examination into the downward spiral of pain and drug addiction that nearly cost him his life.”
Author Mitchell was given carte blanche to interview anyone and everyone he deemed necessary to get the full story.
I, for one, am definitely excited to check out this book! Who else is interested in reading about Phil and his story? READ MORE
