In the third instalment of this local fringe fave, seven more tales of shlocky, horror-filled fun are afoot, with the inimitable Satan as host. Edgar Allen Poe, ’50s sci-fi, the promised 3-D and general silliness, mayhem and cheekiness ensue.

Starting and ending on high notes, with some excellent fake movie trailers, such as The Horrors of the Island of Nazi Dinosaurs and the ingenious inclusion of live 3-D, the comedy does ebb and flow during the show, which could stand to be shorter than its 75 minutes.

The inclusion of foul-mouthed, lascivious Satan seems incongruous with a send-up of entertainment from a more innocent time, but if you sit back and shut off your brain, you’re sure to enjoy the ride. Just make sure you check out the lobby seating chart to clarify your sissified seating needs.

From the Fringe program:

'Ghoul' things come in threes – and 3D – in this 'chill'-arious third chapter of the five-star monster smash tribute to E.C. Comics, William Castle, cheesy horror flicks and live spook shows! Subject to SHOCK? Bring someone to hold hands with... because this time, the stage can't contain the creepiness! The scares get up 'ghost' and personal, adding a devious dimension to the frightful fun. And even in the audience – you're not safe from the terrifying touch of fear!
