On Friday and Saturday, it’ll be Trejo’s turn as he’s scheduled to be at the factory, located on 602 W. Van Buren Ave. in Harlingen.
Trejo has a large cult following after appearing in numerous Robert Rodriguez films and other movies of the macabre, including Maniac Cop 2, Blood In Blood Out, From Dusk Till Dawn, Anaconda, Con Air, The Replacement Killers, Desperado, Once Upon A Time in Mexico, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween, Predators, and – of course – Machete… the film that has arguable brought him more mainstream appeal.
