Chiller Theatre

Chiller Theatre fed NYC’s appetite for horror on and off from 1961 to 1982.  The show aired on local television station Channel 11 (WPIX) every Saturday night, and frightened children and adults alike with their line up of classic horror/sci-fi films from the black and white thrillers to colorful Godzilla monster movies.

It was such an amazing phenomena that to this day Chiller Theatre is celebrated by a collection of perfectly nerdtastic, utterly devoted horror fans for one weekend a year.  Lucky for all of you readers, that weekend is coming up!

The Hilton in Parsippany, New Jersey will be hosting the horrorific affair from October 28th to the 31st.  There will be a costume contest, a bat exhibit room, a Planet of the Apes prop museum, and appearances by all of your favorite celebrities including Smonkin’ Joe Frasier, Marky Ramone, Zacherley the Cool Ghous (the original host of the WPIX show), and the last east coast convention appearance of Elvira in character!  Oh my!  Don’t forget your costumes …
