What if the celebrity I really wanted to see cancels or does not make the show for some reason? Can I get a refund on my ticket?
Texas Frightmare Weekend has confirmed each guest personally. Situations out of control of the celebrity or Texas Frightmare Weekend may arise that prevent a guest from appearing at the show. We will announce cancellations as soon as we are made aware of them. Ticket prices will not be refunded. Please come to the convention to enjoy ALL of the guests and events.

Panels and screenings are usually not full and have plenty of empty seats. However, some may be very popular and fill up very quickly.

Most do charge for autographs, many supply a photo or other memorabilia that they’ll autograph for you. The amount charged for autographs varies by celebrity and most will sign the merchandise that you bring for them to sign. Autograph prices are determined by the celebrity and/or their management.
Autographs are purchased directly from the guest at the event. Texas Frightmare Weekend has attempted to verify the pricing of autographs with either the guest or the management/agent/representative. All prices are determined by the guests and their representatives and not Texas Frightmare Weekend. Therefore, pricing is subject to change without notice and can be different at the event than what is stated on this website.
