Chiller Theater- April 18, 2009

This was to be the biggest group we have ever had going to Chiller. Though, at first it was only my friends Alan, Aisha, and myself headed out to Chiller. We got there early and checked in. By 11:30 AM we were inside the con. One of the first things we noticed is that it was not horribly crowded where we could not even move. Instead, we had breathing room, and we went off to meet celebs.

The first person I went up to was still lovely Cinizia Monreale form Lucio Fulci's masterpiece The Beyond. She played the blind chick in that classic. She still looks great! She asked me if was Italian. I told her my dad was from Sicily. Anyways, she signed my copy of The Beyond.

Next, we went to tent. There I went up to the lovely April Hunter. Goddamn! She is so hot! She was also really friendly, and at 10 bucks for an 8x10 and 10 more for a pic with her, I felt she had nice little deal going.

Next up, we went inside and got it in the pit! Man, we never been in the pit this early in the day! I think it is great that they only sold tickets online. It helped keep the crowds from being a nightmare. Anyways, I had wanted to meet Edward James Olmos, but at 50 bucks, plus 20 more if you wanted a pic with him, I was like, "No way!" My friend Alan went up to him, though. I opted to go up to another Battlestar Galatica actor, the pretty Luciana Carro. She played Kat on BSG. I told her when her character died, I actually cried! She was very nice and, of course, asked if I was Italian. When I told her that I was, she told me she was, too. She signed my copy of the first season of BSG.

As we walked through the dealer's room, we noticed that Jasmine Mai was there! I totally flipped out! While, I seen her before, I never got her autograph or anything of the sort. She was really friendly and sweet in person. She has a great personality and talked to me for a while, which was a really pleasant surprise! I got a magazine filled with pics of her and other models inside, which she had presigned but then personalized it for me. It came a bunch of pics and a poster, all signed! Plus, a free 8x10 personalized. And, I get a pic with her, all for 20 bucks! Deal of the day! Overall, she was just so awesome, that she is definitely my favorite celeb I went up to at this Chiller.



Soon, we met up with Jon, Kim, Matt, and Rachel. We decided to get some lunch. Yay! It's the Chiller Menu!

As is always the case with Chiller, there were people in some cool costumes. These were some of my favs:





In the dealer's room, I saw Ruby LaRoca. Like I have said before, I know Ruby for quite some time now. She is always such a cool chick in person. You just gotta love her!



In the dealer's room I got a bunch of cool stuff. They included an action figure of Terry Funk as Chainsaw Charlie and four Japanese movie DVDs: The Angel Collection, Tokyo Gore Police, Flower & Snake II, and Assault! Jack the Ripper. We saw some statues that had rubber duckies. We thought that that was so cute!




Afterward, we finally met up with Pat and Freddie, and later, new comers to Chiller: Rollie and Rachel. The entourage is finally complete!

Since Rollie, wanted to meet Demolition, we went back to the tent. Cynthia Myers of Russ Meyer's classic Beyond the Valley of the Dolls pointed at us, and I soon was surprised that she wanted to talk to me! Turns out her son is a huge Metallica fan, and she wanted to know where to get the T-shirt, I was wearing. I told her to go to hottopic.com

We would eventually get some pizza for dinner, and the all of, and I do mean all of us, got together. Pat and Jon got stuck in the elevator, but thankfully, nothing happened, and soon they, too, joined us. We had a moment of silence for the late, great Marilyn Chambers. I had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago at Chiller, and it is really a shame that she passed away, so recently. God bless her and may she R.I.P.

Anyways, when we were done we went to the Chiller party! It took them some time to set up, but when they did, holy shit was it was awesome! As they were setting up celebs were getting ready to jam, including Rugrats voice and The Devil's Rejects star, the pretty E.G. Daily.



The Dead Elvi began the fun. Throughout the whole night they played a KILLER set!



As is the usual, lovely ladies joined them on stage.




It should be noted that they had a new signer, and he was awesome! I love his raspy voice!




Pop signer Taylor Dane had the most surreal moment of the night, as she played with zombies, in front of a sea of metalheads, and STILL bought the house down! She had an awesome set and looked great to boot!




If you are wondering the chick in blue is a hottie who played the keyboards, on this night.

Mark Slaughter, who the audience was chanting for, went on next. But, he needed a drum to play, and since he did not have one, we think he should have done an acoustic set. He was way off tune, and did not even finish his best, most famous, and the one this crowd was begging for, the song: Up All Night.




But, thank God E.G. Daily joined him in a duet for a kick ass cover of Helter Skelter! Now, that was awesome!



Micky Dolenz then totally rocked the house with really, really killer tunes!





But, it did not stop there! The surprise of the night was the awesomeness of Richie Scarlett, who has played with Sebastian Bach, Alice Cooper, and Ace Frehley. He fucking rocked so hard that he just fucking killed!!!!! Many were like who is that guy?! But, at that point, it did not mattered cause he fucking owned it! There was a point where he got off the stage and played in the middle of the audience! Like I told a girl that I was talking to, I been to Chiller for years, and I never seen anyone do anything like that! Kick ass!

Next, Dale Bozzio and her band Missing Persons further kicked the audience's asses! People were totally rocking out!




As always, Chiller is filled with crazy shit going on. Throughout the night these blow dolls rocked out, too!

This chick, whoever she was, has a smoking hot body.

I seen the lovely Sky for the past 2 years or so at Chiller, but I finally got a pic with her. She is just so hot and sexy!

The next band to play was Pat Horgan and Thunder Road . They were great, too! Shit even Austin Powers rocked out to them. But, by this point I was fucking dead tired. I mean I had not been feeling so good all week (in fact as I type this I am finally getting over this slight cold), and when exhaustion hit, we just had to call it a night. Although, Rollie, Rachel, Matt, and I tried to stay as long as we could.

The next day we said bye to our friends and off we went for pncakes and BACON!! An awesome breakfast later, we headed our seprate ways, as we await the next Chiller!



Here is to the best Chiller, yet, and to many more to come. Chiller fucking rules!!!!!!!!! All hail!
