With the Chiller Theatre Expo celebrating its 20th anniversary this October 29-31 at the Hilton Parsippany in New Jersey, another historic milestone will take place at the event, namely a 30th anniversary cast reunion of Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD (aka THE GATES OF HELL).

Six participants from this 1980 Italian shocker will be part of the Halloween show’s ITALIAN INVASION III, five of whom will be appearing at their very first convention EVER:

Catriona MacColl “Mary Woodhouse”
Giovanni Lomabrdo Radice “Bob”
Carlo De Mejo “Gerry”
Antonella Interlenghi “Emily Robbins”
Venantino Venantini “Mr. Ross”
Luca Venantini “John-John Robbins”

“For me, it will be a dream come true,” states Paura Production’s ITALIAN INVASION organizer Mike Baronas. “This atmospheric zombie nightmare has been, and always will be, my favorite horror film. It haunted me to the core upon seeing during the VHS boom of the mid-80’s and has been a major influence on my life and career. Everything has led up to reuniting these friends of mine together at one time and in one place. After 3 decades, this will undoubtedly be a once-in-a-lifetime event for all!”

Ed. note:...and if that wasn't enough to make you rethink your local east coast meat market bar plans for Halloween weekend,chatting up the obligatory sexy witches,sexy pirates,sexy spies,sexy zombies,ad infinitum,how about the announcement of this amazing addition to the lineup...
