Dallas' Alien Expo is now becoming Famous Monsters Convention due to the amount of highly requested creature-centric guests! In addition to the Lone Gunmen (The X-Files) joining the convention, the co-director and special effects cinematographer of Shin Godzilla will be in attendance for a special screening of the film.

Press Release: Due to the overwhelming requests for Famous Monsters-themed guests and an increasing demand for more science fiction and horror, Alien Expo in Dallas has now become Famous Monsters Convention Dallas, which will feature even more genre film and television stars!

Joining the previously announced Lone Gunmen of THE X-FILES will be the superstar director and special effects supervisor of SHIN GODZILLA, a special reunion of co-stars from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, a celebration of the 35th anniversary of BLADE RUNNER with Sean Young, and many more vendors, artists, and VR experiences — along with the second annual Silver Scream Film and Comic Festival!

Stay tuned for even more special guest announcements!


STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION ran for seven seasons, eclipsing the three-season run of the original show and garnering a special place in the hearts of many 80s children. We'll be celebrating its 30th anniversary with core cast members Michael DornGates McFadden, and Marina Sirtis!


Director Shinji Higuchi and special effects cinematographer Keiichi Sakurai, the effects team behind SHIN GODZILLA and the live action ATTACK ON TITAN films, will be in Dallas answering your (burning) Godzilla questions!


Join us as we celebrate the 35th anniversary of one of the greatest science fiction films of all time! Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER seems to only get better as the years go by, and actress Sean Young will be a special guest at the Dallas Convention!

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
