BURBANK, Calif. - June 4, 2007 - Chiller scares up the best television this June, beginning on June 5 when it showcases Paris Hilton in Nine Lives at 9pm and 12am (ET), the same day that she turns herself in to jail.

First up on the serving platter is Red Dragon at 4pm and 9:30pm (ET), followed by Hannibal at 6:30pm and 12am (ET).
"Chiller has an amazing array of summer movies premiering and returning in June that will keep horror fans clenched in suspense all month long," said Dan Harrison, Senior Vice President Emerging Networks, NBC Universal Cable. "From Werewolf to Jaws, there will be plenty of selections to choose from."
Chiller promises more movies in June and delivers just that. Wednesday, June 6 belongs to the ferocious sharp-fanged creature known as the werewolf.
