For over twenty years, Bill Cardille hosted Chiller Theater, a television institution for Pittsburghers. Running from 1963-1984 on Channel 11, Chiller Theater was a late-night movie program highlighting spooky films from throughout cinema history. 

Cardille also acted in the original 1968 “Night of the Living Dead,” as well as the 1990 remake of the film. He and his daughter Lori Cardille join us to discuss the show, their current projects and Bill's illustrious career on stage and screen.
