Slideshow  |  Trailer

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing out the windshield but an horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid bring you audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE delves into the twisted minds of new and established horror auteurs to present singular stories of the uncanny; stories that will chill and delight fans of the macabre.


“THE MUST LIST: Eerie-fy your ears with this CD box set of 
terror-themed audio plays boasting performers like Vincent D’Onofrio,
Ron Perlman, and horror auteur Larry Fessenden, whose
spine-tingling intros would make Vincent Price proud. Bwah-ha-ha!“

“TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE most definitely delivers.”

Radio Horror returns: Tom Ashbrook hosts an hour 
with Larry Fessenden, Glenn McQuaid, Ron Perlman and Angus Scrimm

“looks backward into nostalgia while offering glimpses
of futuristic ambition… a handful of these episodes
push the state of the art to the next level.”

“top tier talent… phenomenal sound design 
with each episode the talent behind the microphone is fantastic.”

“If you’re looking for some spooky aural accompaniment
to your Halloween season this year, look no further
than TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE”

“Some episodes re-create pop-culture archetypes… 
Other episodes play with expectations of characters that seem familiar… 
At least half the enjoyment, though, is the colorful sound design”

“ONE OF THE GREATEST OFFERINGS
OF THE GENRE THIS YEAR”

“ONE OF THE BEST SURPRISES OF 2010!”

“ONE OF THE YEAR’s TOP 10
— the team at Glass Eye Pix and the filmmakers they’ve assembled are very much crafting great little spookfests that remind us why we love horror storytelling in general.”

“fans of shows from ‘A Prairie Home Companion’ to ‘This American Life’ that take their stylistic cues from radio’s glory days — should enjoy these macabre R-rated tales.”

“I can’t wait for the next TALE”

THE HOLE DIGGER

It was the summer that everything changed, that summer in Cape Cod when me and my brother first found the hole dug down in the dunes in front of our house. Whether it was for a grave or a treasure, that hole changed our lives for good.

Larry Fessenden’s haunting tale stars James Le Gros (DRUGSTORE COWBOY, LIVING IN OBLIVION, POINT BLANK) and Owen and Tobias Campbell (BITTER FEAST, CONVICTION), and features Kevin Corrigan (BUFFALO ’66, THE DEPARTED, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS), Heather Robb (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, STAKE LAND) and Joel Garland (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, I SELL THE DEAD).

TRAWLER

Featuring the voice talents of Christopher Denham (SHUTTER ISLAND, HEADSPACE), AJ Bowen (THE SIGNAL, A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) and Larry Fessenden (HABIT, I SELL THE DEAD).

—————————

These Tales are a loving homage to a time when horror and suspense were manifested in the minds of the audience, just as much as they were in the performances themselves. We hope you will take a journey with us, one that hasn’t been traversed since the days of Orson Welles, Boris Karloff, and Vincent Price.

GLASS EYE PIX RELEASES “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE” COMPLETE SEASON ONE BOX SET ON OCTOBER 11, 2011
— JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN!!

“Tales From Beyond the Pale” is Available as CD, Box Set and Digital Downloads on Amazon and iTunes Beginning October 11, 2011

(September 6, 2011) Glass Eye Pix is excited to offer the complete first season of their wildly successful audio theater TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE to audiences beginning October 11th—just in time for Halloween as digital downloads, compact discs and as a box set.

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride with nothing beyond the windshield but a horizon-less void, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid created the acclaimed TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, audio theater inspired by the vintage radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles.

“It was very gratifying to challenge these artists to step outside their chosen medium and explore the world of audio storytelling, and to get everyone into production without a long fundraising period. With audio tales, the only limitation to production value is imagination,” states Fessenden.

McQuaid adds: “Season One of Tales from Beyond the Pale represents a year long effort to plunge the depths of like minded story tellers and to get original genre content out to hungry ears. It’s an eclectic mix, with each story taking the listener down new and unexplored roads.”

Hosted by Larry Fessenden, the tales feature the voice talents of an impressive array of actors from genre and beyond, including: Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, Doug Jones, Shea Whigham, Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, Kate Lyn Sheil, Michael Cerveris, Nick Damici, Kevin Corrigan, Angus Scrimm, AJ Bowen, Christopher Denham, and many others….

TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is brought to you by Fessenden’s production outfit Glass Eye Pix, which is responsible for dozens of celebrated independent films including THE LAST WINTER, I SELL THE DEAD, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, WENDY AND LUCY, and STAKE LAND, as well as the forthcoming THE INNKEEPERS. TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE delves into the twisted minds of ten horror auteurs to present singular stories of the uncanny; stories that will chill and delight fans of the macabre.

Man-On-The-Ledge-360x543GLASS EYE PIX Launches Genre Audio Program “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE”
Website goes live; first episode & promo video available 26 October
Episode ONE: MAN ON THE LEDGE by Joe Maggio starring Vincent D’Onofrio

Tuesday, 26 October 2010 — From Glass Eye Pix, the maverick production company responsible for recent independent genre movies THE LAST WINTER, I SELL THE DEAD, and THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, as well as the forthcoming STAKE LAND and THE INNKEEPERS comes a new venture in the macabre.

Inspired by the classic radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock, Boris Karloff , Peter Lorre, and Orson Welles, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is a half hour downloadable audio program featuring notable thespians including Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, Angus Scrimm, Shea Wigham, James Le Gros, Joe Swanberg, and Kevin Corrigan.
Hosted by Glass Eye Pix CEO Larry Fessenden, each thirty-minute episode is written and directed by one of today’s horror auteurs including Joe Maggio (BITTER FEAST)¸ JT Petty (THE BURROWERS, SOFT FOR DIGGING), Graham Reznick (I CAN SEE YOU, THE VIEWER), Paul Solet (GRACE), Ashley Thorpe (THE HAIRY HANDS, SCAYRECROW), Simon Rumley (THE LIVING AND THE DEAD, RED WHITE AND BLUE), Jeff Buhler (MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, INSAINTARIUM), and Sarah Langan (Author of THE KEEPER, THE MISSING).

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride by Fessenden and frequent collaborator Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD, effects supervisor on THE ROOST and THE LAST WINTER), this project continues the mission at Glass Eye Pix to celebrate individual voices in the arts and to reassert the broad palette of moods that comprise the horror story.

Says Fessenden: “We thought it would be a great opportunity to get into production, work with some of our favorite people and meet some new ones with a project that was relatively affordable. I’ve always loved radio and audio books. We wanted to try our hand at the format. I’m amazed at what people came up with. Feels pretty special. Like addicts, we’re already looking to Season two.”

McQuaid adds: “Season One has been a tremendous pleasure to work on. Larry and I wanted to gather stories from all walks of life; let each tale stand on it’s own merits, as well as complement the entire season. Listeners will be transported far and wide, from distant moons to misty moors, by stories told with a wide range of styles and sensibilities. The challenge for Larry and I, and all the filmmakers we reached out to, was to close our eyes, let go of our visual technique and concentrate purely on sound and performance.”

Never one to skimp on fanfare, Glass Eye has commissioned the wildly talented Gary Pullin to design the logo and website and a unique poster for each tale, evocative of illustrated one sheets from the 60’s or pulp comic covers from Marvel and EC. Each Tuesday for ten weeks a new episode will be unleashed, and with it, another Pullin original. All the graphics will be available for collectors through the TALES merch store.

Tuesday, to celebrate the launch of this new Glass Eye Pix venture, a very special video from the notorious animator Voltaire will be released, featuring the TALES theme music by award winning composer Jeff Grace (STAKE LAND, MEEK’S CUTOFF, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL)

Rushed into release for the Halloween Season, the first episodes of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE will only be available through the website ($1.99 by paypal or credit card), but will soon be downloadable from itunes, amazon and other outlets. In December, all of Season One will be presented in a deluxe CD package just in time for Christmas. Plans are ongoing to get the show onto the radio where it belongs, and look for the TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE i-pad app very soon.

Also distinguishing these audio plays will be a concentration on the landscape of sound and music that can be taken for granted in the
visual medium of film. Says Fessenden: “Glenn and I wanted to celebrate the written word and the power of sound design in approaching this project. We also found if you cut out cameras and lights, you can tell stories a lot cheaper.” Says McQuaid: “As filmmakers embarking on this project, we are letting go of our visual tricks— the imagery is suggested, not seen, and so the listener gets to paint their own picture, it’s interactive.”

The accompanying website will feature an original poster for each story by Gary Pullin, the celebrated designer responsible for the look of Rue Morgue Magazine. Visitors to the site will enjoy an intro by the stop-motion animator Voltaire and will find information on all of the show’s collaborators. TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE will be made available through the website and will be downloadable via i-tunes and Amazon individually or as a series to be enjoyed however and whenever the listener wants: Radio plays for the digital age. Scripts are rolling in; production begins in August, and the first episodes should be available by Halloween. For all the latest news, please visit www.talesfrombeyondthepale.com.

BEYOND THE PALE: Unacceptable; outside agreed standards of decency. This pale is the noun meaning ‘a stake or pointed piece of wood’. It is virtually obsolete now except in this phrase, but is still in use in the associated words paling (as in paling fence) and impale (as in Dracula movies). The paling fence is significant, as the term pale became to mean the area enclosed by such a fence and later just the figurative meaning of ‘the area that is enclosed and safe’. So, to be ‘beyond the pale’ was to be outside the area accepted as ‘home’. —www.phrases.org
