Two days before Hurricane Sandy hit, NSU ventured where many fear to tread: North Jersey’s Chiller Theatre Toy, Model and Film Expo. Held semi-annually since 1990, this three-day hotel-based Halloween hootfest features everything avid horror hounds could want. In addition to entire rooms of celebrity guests, the show offers monster model building contests, horror comics, sci-fi DVD’s, and coffins full of creepy collectables and macabre memorabilia. A smattering of dealers even carried non-sport cards. But the true thrust of the show is the celebs (led by Cool Ghoul & Horror Host Zacherley) and the cosplaying attendees. Below is just a small sampling.
