PITTS­BURGH, PENN­SYL­VA­NIA

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Heroes & Inspirations Greg Nicotero -

If [make-up ef­fects creator] Tom Savini hadn’t lived 40 min­utes away from me, I wouldn’t be sit­ting here now. Be­cause Tom and Ge­orge Romero opened those doors for me, and al­lowed me to ex­pe­ri­ence Hol­ly­wood in Penn­syl­va­nia, where I grew up. There was also a guy who lived in Pitts­burgh called Bill Cardille. On Satur­day nights, he would play the host of an old hor­ror show called Chiller Theatre, and run mon­ster movies. And at a very, very young age, that’s what I did on Satur­day nights.

Chiller Theatre: “Would you like a cup of tea?”
