Chiller Theatre April 2019

On April 27, 2019 it was time to make another trip to the greatest convention in the universe: the legendary Chiller Theatre! And as such, my friend, Freddie, and I headed from New York City to New Jersey for another fun day of horror fandom and meeting awesome celebrities.

The first celeb that I went up was the one I was most looking forward to meeting: Dina Meyer. The beautiful star of Saw I-IV, Piranha 3D, Dragonheart, Starship Troopers, the Birds of Prey TV series and more, is one that I have been a long time fan of. Throughout the whole day, she had a line, as many fans wanted to meet her. Meyer was all smiles, as she met them all.
When, I finally got up to her, I told her that she was the person I had most wanted to meet. She then asked me if wanted a hug. I said yes, and she, awesomely, gave me one! First highlight of a what was shaping up to be an epic day!

The second star, I went up to was the awesome Christine Elise. The lovely star who played Kyle in Child's Play 2 and Cult of Chucky, Emily Valentine on Beverly Hills 90210, among other roles, posed with a Chucky doll (if you decided her to do so) and was really cool in person. She also wore a kick ass Beetlejuice/ Chucky hybrid tee!
 
The last star I up was the most awesome celeb of the day, the beautiful Liane Curtis. In fact, the star of Critters 2, Girlfriend from Hell, Sixteen Candles and more, might very well be the single most awesome celeb that I have ever met at a horror or comic-book convention. Which, if you know or have been following this site for a long time, know that this is saying a lot! She was hilarious, fun, and care-free, as she told us many a kick ass story. She is so energetic and real in person, that it is impossible to not be taken by her cool as hell personality. Here is hoping she returns to Chiller!

Outside of the convention there were some cool as hell parked cars from some classic movies:



The following duo is my favorite cosplay of the day. I have to say that this dude might just be the best Beetlejuice that I have ever seen. Lydia was fucking awesome, as well!

The party was a blast as we hung with friends and listened to awesome music like The Dead Elvi! As is the tradition celebs joined them onstage for all the fun.


I got the following swag at the con:
From Severin Films, I got Blu-rays of: The Horror of Beach Party, Emanuelle and Franciose (neither of which I have ever seen), and Death Warmed Up. The later is an awesome and gory New Zealand horror movie that I have loved since I first saw it on VHS as a teen. I wanted to own it forever. But, it was never available on DVD. Thank you Severin for this release!!!
And, I picked up Screem magazine which got me a free copy of Kiss of the Tarantula (which I have also never seen).
With convention prices getting so high, I only got one autograph. It was Christine Elise's, who signed my Chucky box-set Blu-ray.

So until, the next one, we had a fucking blast at this Chiller!
