‘Zombie’: 30th Anniversary Reunion

reunionI’m not sure that I’ve ever wished to live in close approximation to New Jersey, but right now, that’s exactly what I’m wishing.

The upcoming Chiller Theater convention in Parsippany features what’s being called the biggest assembly of Italian horror icons ever assembled, including a 30th anniversay reunion of several cast and crew members from Lucio Fulci’s Zombie:

  • Ian McCulloch (Dr. Butcher M.D., Contamination)
  • Richard Johnson (The Haunting, Beyond the Door, Screamers)
  • Al Cliver (The Beyond, Cannibals, Endgame, Demonia, Devil Hunter)
  • Ottaviano Dell’Acqua (Rats: Night of Terror, Cut & Run, Zombi 3)
  • Giannetto De Rossi (SPFX maestro of High Tension, Dune, The Beyond)
  • Mirella De Rossi (Hair Stylist of Dragonheart, Conan the Destroyer)

Unfortunately, El Maestro will not be making a personal appearance unless he shows up in zombie form himself, as he’s been dead for 13 years.

Chiller Theater takes place April 17-19.

Thanks to B-Sol at The Vault of Horror for the heads up.  Head on over to his site, where you can see a more complete list of Italian horror luminaries who’ll be showing up over the weekend.
