John Dugan

Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Celebrity Hall, Bay Center 2nd Floor

For the first time ever in a non-film setting, John will don his original makeup, applied by fellow Pensacon guest and Face Off fan favorite, RJ Haddy, and be available for exclusive photo ops! This is a once in a lifetime chance to be a part of horror history!

John Dugan is no stranger to the horror scene as he is best known his role as the Grandpa in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974).

After this great hit, John went on hiatus. Thankfully to his fans, John’s hiatus was short lived and he began filming again. True to his roots he appeared in Texas Chainsaw Massacre:The Next Generation (1994), Monstrosity (2007), The Butcher Boys (2012) and The Hospital (2013). Almost forty years later, he appeared in the iconic movie Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013) as Grandpa Sawyer.

Currently John is filming The Mangled, Book of Ash, and The Boogeyman!
