Camp Crystal Lake: The Musical?

Yes, you read that correctly. I recently discovered this upcoming musical, and I am very intrigued. After doing further research, I found this show is produced by Wolfbane Productions. Some of their past productions include Young Frankenstein, Stranger Things, Evil Dead & The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Camp Crystal Lake: The Musical is their latest production and one I would love to go see if my schedule works out. I love the concept and wish it was one we see more of in the future at the musical theater level.

Synopsis (From Wolfbane’s Website):
“The Splatter Zone is back! Wolfbane pays homage to classic 80s slasher films with this original parody musical that takes elements from films like Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and others and combines them into one crazy theatrical experience! Join us in January for our New Year, New Works reading to witness how this gory, blood splattered show became the fully produced production you’ll see in August.”

PLEASE NOTE: This show is rated “R” for adult language, situations, and themes.

Camp Crystal Lake: The Musical will take center stage on two consecutive weekends. August 4, 5, and 6th and the following weekend on August 11, 12, & 13. The show will take place at the outdoor venue, Wolf Pac which is located at 618 Country Club Road in Appomattox, VA.

I’m really hoping I will be attend! For more information on the show or how to get tickets, you can visit the following website: Camp Crystal Lake The Musical – Live Performance — Wolfbane Productions

Movie Review: The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)

The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a 2016 horror film directed by André Øvredal. Emile Hirsch & Brian Cox star in the film.

This movie really creeped me out! I’m generally desensitized to horror films but a few scenes in this one sent chills down my body. The Autopsy of Jane Doe is filled with suspense and morbid creepiness. The acting was superb as the two stars, Cox & Hirsch give brilliant performances as father and son characters.

This movie left me feeling dreadful and uneasy. Therefor I highly recommend.

Movie Review: 8 Days to Hell (2022)

8 Days to Hell is a low budget horror anthology film with a serial killer theme. The film is directed by Shane Woodson who also stars in the film. 8 Days To Hell also stars Eric Roberts & Tori London.

Overall, it is what you would expect from a low budget horror movie. I personally love horror anthology so I rarely turn one down even if it appears to be low budget. Some of the stories are well done but overall I struggled to get into this film.

HFH Score: 3.3

Spooky Stories: Volume 1 – Metamorphosis

This is a story relayed to me by my dad when he was around 8 years old. My dad lived in a small house with multiple brothers and sisters. Him and his brothers shared one bedroom. One night as they lay in bed sleeping, my dad was awakened. As he cleared his eyes, he looked up to the center of the small room. He then witnessed a strange young man who looked like he was approximately in his twenties, standing in the center of the small room. Initially frozen, he mustered up the courage to wake up his oldest brother.

My dad and his brother both now see the man. Frightened and thinking it was an intruder, they pick up shoes by their bed sides and fling them at the unknown visitor. It was at this point that they realized that they were not dealing with an intruder but something supernatural instead. As the shoes they threw hit the target, they passed through the man’s body. Now the two were even more frozen in fear to where they just helplessly watched the figure.

As they observe, things get even more frightening as the man’s appearance starts to change. They originally saw him as a young man in his twenties but then his features changed to that of a slightly older man. His appearance kept changing until the figure’s appearance turned to that of an elderly man. The ghostly man then disappeared to never been seen again.

The next morning my dad and his brother told their parents and their siblings about the experience, but no one believed them. They would later move out of that house. To my knowledge that was the only ghostly encounter my dad ever experienced. He first told me the story when I was a child but I still get the chills thinking about it to this day.

MOVIE REVIEW: GIRLS WITH BALLS (2018)

Girls with Balls is a 2018 French dark comedy and horror film directed by Olivier Afonso. The version I viewed was dubbed in English so the lips don’t exactly match the words communicated by the characters. Sometimes that can be annoying, other times it can be downright hilarious.

This film has pretty low ratings on critic sites (3.9/IMDB & 42% on Rotten Tomatoes). Despite that I really enjoyed it throughout. The dark comedy is very silly and over the top at times but has a few funny one liners. I also thought the kill scenes were well done with some nice gore. Overall I enjoyed this much more than the average Comedy/Horror film.

HFH Score: 5.4
