Their characters have both died already, so this midquel fills in the missing chapter that showcases Amanda’s rise as the Pig. The only way to revive deceased characters is through remaking or rebooting. Therefore, they opted for a Midquel – a prequel that takes place between two movies. At the age of 54, Shawnee Smith still looks young for her years, enabling her to reprise Amanda without the issue of aging.
Twice a year, the Chiller Theatre convention is held in Parsippany, NJ. I go to both shows, the one in April and the one in October, and I always have fun at every Chiller I go to. I love meeting the stars at the show, and I’ve made a lot of friends in terms of attendees and Chiller staff as well. While the memories are still relatively fresh in my mind, I wanted to do a recap of the October 2022 Chiller Theatre convention.
