5th Act Annoucement: Species

Sierra Bloom is one of our regular performers and blows us away with her creativity, meticulous attention to lore-specific details, and impressive sets! This year she’ll take on the B Movie sensation, Species Movie!

“Did you know? The premise of Sil's creation, the detection of extraterrestrial transmissions that provide detailed instructions for the creation of a humanoid life-form, is virtually identical to the premise of the BBC television series A for Andromeda (1961), co-written by astronomer Fred Hoyle and author John Elliot. The only difference between the two premises is that, in this movie, Earth receives two alien transmissions, the first provides the formula for a new chemical process using methane that will provide virtually unlimited energy (thus convincing the Earth of the aliens' good intentions), then with the instructions for Sil's creation. In A for Andromeda (1961), the Earth receives only one alien transmission, this provided instructions for building a new kind of supercomputer, and the computer, in turn, generates the instructions for the creation of the humanoid Andromeda.”

4th Act Annoucement: The Witch

The Collective wow'd us last year with their portrayal of American Psycho. This year they will be exploring the supernatural with The Witch.

"As horror icons go, however, Bela Lugosi this is not. Black Phillip's actual name is Charlie, and he's since retired to a farm not far from where The Witch was shot in Northern Ontario. There he lives bucolically, wholly unaware of his cult-celebrity status

Like so many movie stars, Charlie lucked into his breakthrough role largely because of his looks. "A trainer showed us some pictures and we chose the goat who looked the Black Phillip-iest," recalls Eggers, who tends to emit a faint sigh of exasperation whenever the subject of Charlie comes up.

But Charlie wasn't the easiest to work with. No one in the cast had a rougher time with Charlie than Ralph Ineson. A veteran British actor with a bassy voice and large, aristocratic features, Ineson, 46, had to drop 30 pounds to play the family patriarch, a starving farmer. That left him at a distinct disadvantage when he was called upon to wrestle Black Phillip, as dictated by several scenes in the script.

"I didn't have a lot of gas in the tank, really," Ineson says of sparring with the beast, who weighed about 50 pounds more than him. "He was horrible. Really, really horrible. From the moment we set eyes on each other it was just kind of hate at first sight. He had two modes: chilling out and doing nothing, or attacking me."

3rd Act Announcement: Shaun of the Dead

For this weeks act annoucment, we welcome Maysun Ryia and friends to Horrific: A Night of Horror Themed Belly Dance presenting Shaun of the Dead! Their plan is to sit back, relax and wait for it all to blow over at the Winchester.

Did you know? The famous cornetto scene was because of a hangover.

Shaun of the Dead famously kicks off what’s become known as the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy,” which also includes Hot Fuzz and The World’s End. The trilogy is so named because the films share certain thematic concerns (they’re all in some way about men who have to learn to grow up and move on with their lives, for example) and because Cornetto ice cream snacks appear in all three. So, how did that start? According to Wright, it’s because he once ate a Cornetto to get over a hangover, and thought it would be funny if Nick Frost’s character, Ed, did the same after a night of drinking.

“It’s the weirdest thing you would want to eat at that time in the morning,” Wright said. “When I was in college, I got very, very drunk once, and I had a Cornetto in the morning and I felt a lot better. So, it became my hangover cure, and it still is.”

How's that for a slice of fried gold?!

1st Act Annoucnment: The Blob

The time has come. Our first act announcement!

Genevieve is known for her amazing performances and elaborate productions. Her creativity and captivating stage presence is sure to wow you!

Genevieve and friends will be presenting The Blob (1958)!

Did you know? The Blob was based on a "true" story!

On September 27, 1950, The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article with the headline "Flying ‘Saucer’ Just Dissolves." The night before, police officers John Collins and Joe Keenen swore that they’d watched a mysterious object fall from the sky. Rushing towards the landing site, the men stumbled upon a purple, jelly-like mass. Collins and Keenen immediately summoned two of their colleagues, who arrived just in time to watch the material evaporate without a trace. The FBI was contacted, a press conference was held, and the whole mess became a national laughing stock.

Fast forward to 1957: That year, producer Jack H. Harris was looking to make a creature feature, but he couldn’t come up with a decent premise. So he asked his friend, Irvine H. Millgate, to try and devise one. "It’s gotta be a monster movie," explained Harris. "It’s gotta be in color instead of black and white. It can’t be a cheapy creepie, it’s gotta have some substance to it. It’s gotta have characters you can believe in. And there’s gotta be a unique monster—never been done before. And the method of killing the monster would have to be something that grandma could have cooked up on her stove." Millgate remembered the Philly incident and the rest is history.
