Chiller Theatre is a toy, model and film expo focused on the horror genre. This year is will be held April 29 through May 1. Recently, they announced their guest list and it looks pretty good.
Stockwell has quite a genre history, including roles in Quantum Leap, the Battlestar Galactica reboot, David Lynch’s Dune, Captain Planet and the Planeteers and 2004’s The Manchurian Candidate, as well as appearances on numerous genre shows such as The Twilight Zone (both the original and the remake), Stargate SG:1, Star Trek: Enterprise, Nowhere Man, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and several Alfred Hitchcock series.
Gross, probably most remembered for playing the father in Family Ties, did a smashing good job (IMHO) in the series of Tremors films (and short-lived TV show) as a firearms enthusiast and a paranoid anti-government survivalist. His additional genre cred include spots on The Outer Limits (1996), The Hunger (1997) and Medium, as well as a few cheesy B (or less) SF films.
Baxter, who worked with Gross on Family Ties, also has a genre past. She was in Ben (the movie about killer rats), The Cat Creature and spots on The Love Boat.
Overshadowed by Keanu Reaves in the Bill & Ted Movies, Winter has gone on to be in a handful of genre films, including Freaked (1993) and Saul of the Mole Men (King Mole Man).
