Little known CHILLER facts...
- The original Chiller Theatre convention was first held in a old movie theater in Rutherford, N.J.
- It was a 2 day show.
- It was originally called Horror-thon '90.
The 2nd show was Son of Horror-thon.
The 3rd show was called Horror-thon '91.
- The first five guests ever to appear at the convention were:
Zacherle, the Cool Ghoul,
Jonathan Harris (Dr. Smith from Lost In Space)
Dyanne Thorne ( star of the Ilsa, She-Wolf film series)
Bob Martin ( Original editor of Fangoria magazine )
Ox Baker ( Escape From New York / Pro Wrestler )
- Ox Baker's voice was so loud and booming that he made announcements that could be heard throughout the theatre without a microphone.
- Staffers worried that the October 2001 expo attendance would suffer greatly after 9/11, when in fact the attendance record broke all previous shows! If that didn't show America's resolve...
- Over 150 Policemen, Firemen and Ambulance personnel were freely admitted to the October 2001 show as a sign of eternal gratitude!
