Clever, Funny, Great staging, Quirky, Great acting

See it if If you like "B" movies. Well enough written and acted to be a couple of notches above average.

Don't see it if You're too cool for seasonal offerings

October 16th, 2016

"Pacing wise, the production is a bit slow. It takes a decent amount of time for the plot to truly kick off and the action to ramp up, although the exposition itself is enjoyable...This ending doesn't show a rather crucial scene and feels somewhat unsatisfying after becoming so deeply engaged in the story...Overall, while the play’s structure itself is somewhat flawed, the great performance work and sultry-scary mood make this piece a good Halloween season date night thrill."

"Camp mingled with straight storytelling...The script and the direction do a good job of keeping us engaged between surprises. Quick pacing, short scenes, and clever, cinematic staging help keep things interesting. We don’t come to care a whole lot about these characters...But sympathetic characters aren’t usually the point of old-fashioned horror stories, and though it’s filled with smartphones and laptops, this ghoulish tale retains a 19th-century ring. To its benefit."
