Some of the most iconic horror films were made in PA – The Blob, Night Of The Living Dead, etc. I suppose that’s why we have events like the Pittsburgh Horror Film Festival in June, Blobfest every July in Phoenixville, the Eerie Horror Festival in Erie on Oct 27-30 and the Living Dead Festival in Evans City on Oct 30-31.
Since it’s nearly Halloween I’m trying to find an appreciation for a genre of film, I’ve never had. Tomorrow evening my husband, Daryl and I, along with another couple, are going to the theatre. You might assume that in honor of Halloween we might be seeing a performance of Wicked or Phantom or even Gaslight. No. We’re going full-on gore. We’re seeing “Evil Dead, The Musical” at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center. Sam Raimi’s campy horror film is now a musical? What’s next? The new thriller, “Sound of Music, the Hills Really are Alive?”
On Friday, I’ll have a full report.
Oh, I almost forgot…we’re sitting in the splatter zone!
