MTC Warehouse (Venue 6), to Saturday

Spoofing low-budget horror flicks, grade-Z acting, William Castle, gimmicky promotions and even their own success last year, the merry maniacs who brought you Macabre Tales of Horror have come screaming back to the Warehouse.

Some favourite characters are seen again, specifically George McRobb as the drunken, profane host Satan (now with more lechery!) and Ed Cuddy, who really looks the part of the nerdy clueless scientist. Add a little risky stuff (simulated drug use), some remarks in bad taste (lots, actually), some really good jokes (a babysitter looks after little Damian, Rosemary and Regan), audience interaction and high energy, and this series of mock horror skits is just a blast.

While there are definite issues with sound (i.e. some more microphones are needed!) and the skits don’t quite flow as smoothly as last year’s edition, this is still going to be scary popular. Get ready to get your “grave” on!

— Janice Sawka

 

From the official Fringe Festival program:

'Boo!'

2010's frighteningly funny five-star monster smash rises from the grave for another kick at the black cat. This sinister shriek-quel pays terrifying tribute to EC Comics, William Castle and live spook shows!

Take an expedition into evil, a stay-cation to scary, courtesy of eight Macabre Tales that'll Boris your Karloff, Bela your Lugosi and Lon your Chaney!
