Editor Emeritus Tony Timpone on Chiller’s “Great American Slashers” this Sunday!
Looking for the perfect post-Fourth of July special? Airing Sunday at 8:00 p.m. (EST, with multiple repeats to follow) comes CHILLER 13: GREAT AMERICAN SLASHERS, the latest installment of Syfy sister channel Chiller’s popular countdown franchise, which will feature comments by FANGORIA editor emeritus Tony Timpone.
Produced and written by David Stephan, the 90-minute special focuses on Hollywood’s most deadly (and memorable) slasher icons, covering such splatter stalwarts as Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Chucky, Jason Voorhees, Norman Bates, Ghostface from SCREAM, Hannibal Lecter and more. Besides Timpone, interviewees include Robert Englund, Jamie Lee Curtis, Heather Langenkamp, Fango fan Judah Friedlander (30 ROCK, FEAST), Fango friend and Badass Digest writer Brian Collins and scream queen Suzi Lorraine (CAN YOU SURVIVE A HORROR FILM?), among others.
