Chiller Theatre Coming Soon

chillerguestsChiller Theatre, a convention held in Parsippany, NJ, and focused on toys, models and film, looks like it has an amazing roster of guests this year. Some of my favs include:

  • Micky Dolenz — I’m a big Monkees fan!
  • Charles Cyphers — character actor who’s been in several great genre shows, include Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Seaquest: DSV. Also shows up in a lot of John Carpenter projects.
  • Dean Haglund — one of the Lone Gunman from The X-Files
  • Jared Martin — another great character actor from numerous genre shows, including War of the Words, Knight Rider, and The Scarecrow and Mrs. King.
  • Carel Struycken — Lurch from the Addams Family movies.
  • Rene Auberjonois — Odo from ST:DS9 and, remember Benson?
  • Walter Koenig — Star Trek and Babylon 5
  • Christopher Atkins — had one of my favorite lines from The Blue Lagoon
  • Lou Ferrigno — The Hulk!
  • Amanda Plummer — star of one of the best Outer Limits (the new one) episodes, as well as Pulp Fiction and Needful Things
  • Erin Gray — played Col. Wilma Deering on Buck Rogers
  • Michael Dorn — probably the best, most conflicted, Klingon ever!
  • George Romero — very interesting and personable speaker

They also have several cast members from George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead and Irwin Allen’s Land of the Giants. For more, visit

If you plan on going on Saturday, you’ll need advanced tickets. This year they won’t be selling them at the door.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
