Chiller Theatre Expo Evacuated After "Suspicious Device" Allegedly Found

Chiller Theatre Expo had the wrong kind of dramatic horror take place within its walls today. The entire event, which takes place at the Hampton Inn in Parsippany, New Jersey, had to be evacuated with everyone staying 100 feet back from the building itself when a "suspicious device" was allegedly discovered. Police and Fire were called to the scene, and reports of "bomb trucks" spread across social media.


Chiller Theater Expo is one of the most popular and longest-running horror conventions in the country. It focuses on horror but including pop culture as a whole and it is in its 28th year. This editions guest list included include Robert Wagner, Jill St. John, Stefanie Powers, Barbara Eden, T.K. Carter, Kim Fields, Pauly Shore, pro wrestlers Bob Backlund and Paul Orndorff, Bai Ling, P.J. Soles, Ken Foree, Ice-T and Coco, Carmen Elecktra, Gumby, artist Ed Pepka, and cast reunions from shows like L.A. Law, Good Times, and The Love Boat, and films like Evil Dead, Day of the Dead, and more. It has also been featured on the Travel Channel on shows like Toy Hunter and more.

This threat comes only days after bombs were mailed to many members of the Democratic Party and CNN, and after today's tragic shooting that took place at a Pittsburgh-area synagogue.

The show has not made comment yet but we will update after they do. The Expo was supposed to be open tomorrow but they have not confirmed or denied if it will go ahead as planned.

First seen on Dread Central
