Throwback Video! THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS Musical As Performed By Legos!

One of the great joys I had several years back during my time with FEARnet (R.I.P.) was being invited, along with the rest of the crew to go see a performance of SILENCE! THE MUSICAL in Los Angeles. With original lyrics & music by Jon Kaplan & Al Kaplan, this hilarious “unauthorized’ parody based on the Academy […]

ROBOT MONSTER: One of the Worst Films Ever Made…is Now a Musical!

As a masochist for incredibly low-budget science fiction and B-movie monsters, I get a strange sensation of pain and pleasure when watching films full of cheesy stock footage and men in rubber suits. I know these are terrible movies. Even most of the people who made them know that they are terrible movies. And yet, […]

Los Angeles: Don’t Miss SLASHED! THE MUSICAL

If there is one thing I learned growing up in the 1980s, it’s that summer camp is always the site of violent accidents and bloody slashers.

In the last decade, audiences have decided that many cult classic horror films should be adapted for the stage starring charming maniacs with the voices of angels. SILENCE […]

Did You Know Of The Existence Of THE SHINING MUSICAL?!

Musicals have been around forever. But it seems in the last decade or so, the rise of musicals based on famous horror properties has become extremely popular. And in most cases, they turn what could be serious, dour, scary material into some hilarious parodies. I never found THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS particularly funny until […]

Theatre is Not Safe: Horror-themed Stage Productions with Deeper Social Messages

Theatre is not safe. Theatre has never been safe. And long before movies, TV, or the Internet were born, theatre was considered mass media and one of the the best ways to open dialogue about beliefs, controversies, and yes- politics. Today theatre is still a powerful tool for expression, even in the horror genre. Like all […]

While some dark musicals like SWEENEY TODD, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, and REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA are well-known, many other horror musicals remain unknown and highly […]
