A budding tradition and must-see at the annual Stanley Film Festival in Estes Park, CO is Tales From Beyond the Pale Live, an in-flesh, festival-tailored iteration of the Larry Fessenden & Glenn McQuaid-produced horror audio dramas. One of the festival’s more experiential events, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live: The Stanley Edition is written exclusively for the Stanley and features performers in person, as well as the magic of live foley, sound and music. It’s a treat that both reveals the form and yet draws you in even further.
At the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, taking place April 30-May 3 at the Stanley Hotel, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live is entitled The Stanley Edition: Parlor Tricks. Taking place Friday, May 1st at 7 p.m. sharp at The Historic Park Theatre, Parlor Tricks is comprised of two tales: Cold Reading, written by Glenn McQuaid & newcomer to Tales, April Snellings (writer and editor at Rue Morgue Magazine and co-editor of the book Horror Movie Heroes); and No Signal by Larry Fessenden.
The show will feature the voice talents of Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here) and Leon Vitali (Barry Lyndon, Terror of Frankenstein) as well as Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Body, Habit). The rest of the cast will be filled by very special guests.

“genre fans with a sense of history should make this entertaining chiller a sought-after item for midnight slots, and a welcome pickup for specialty home-format distribbers.”
“A rare horror exercise whose characters are nearly all well into middle age, “We Are Still Here” introduces the Sacchettis as they drive toward their new home in upstate New York in the dead of winter. Both are grieving the recent loss of their only child, Bobby, in a car accident, but hope the move will provide some distance from that tragedy for Anne (Barbara Crampton, “Re-Animator”) in particular, who’s clearly suffering from major depression. To the dismay of her husband, Paul (Andrew Sensenig), however, she immediately claims to feel Bobby’s “presence” in their new digs.”
Production has started on GEP pal Ted Geoghegan’s haunted house film, WE ARE STILL HERE.
“Production is underway in Western NY on ’70s-set ghost story We Are Still Here from MPI/Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures. The pic marks the directorial debut of Don’t Wake The Dead screenwriter Ted Geoghegan, with Travis Stevens producing and Greg Newman serving as executive producer. We Are Still Here follows Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Barbara Crampton) who move to the quiet New England countryside to try to start a new life after their teenage son is killed in a car crash. But the grieving couple becomes the prey of a family of vengeful spirits that reside in their new home, and before long they discover that the seemingly peaceful town they’ve moved into is hiding a dark, terrifying dark secret. Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow, Planet Of The Apes) and Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, Stake Land) also star. MPI will be talking it up to potential buyers at EFM. Dark Sky Films’ other original productions include the upcoming Late Phases, Frankenstein’s Army, Here Comes The Devil, The Innkeepers, Stake Land and Hatchet II & III. Snowfort Pictures has produced such films as horror pic Cheap Thrills, Directors’ Fortnight documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, and the upcoming Starry Eyes and American Muscle.”
