Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

THE TINGLER at Texas Theatre Halloween Night

Thursday October 31, 2013, is Halloween and what better way to celebrate it than with a little Vincent Price? You can enjoy the awesome horror flick of THE TINGLER and not just that, but enjoy it with Percepto!

tingler_poster_02_t600You see, way back when, as a marketing gimmick, many of the major theaters had seats in the auditorium fitted with little buzzers. So that when activated, your chair sent a “tingling” up your spine. This was supposedly the “tingler”, a parasite that resided in your spine and fed on fear. The only way to survive was to scream! This great movie was directed by William Castle who also did HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. Follow the link below to get tickets and see a trailer for the movie.

What are your go-to movies for Halloween? Mine? The classics such as DRACULA, THE MUMMY, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, etc. No particular favorite.
