FANGORIA Reports TALES at Stanley “Captivating, Shocking”


Fangoria checked out the latest TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, which just premiered live at the 2015 Stanley Film Fest. Stanley Edition: Parlor Tricks included “Cold Reading” by Glenn McQuaid and April Snellings, and “No Signal” by Fessenden. Performing live in front of an audience at the eerie Stanley, the radio-style plays included acting from Barbara Crampton, Leon Vitali, Martha Harmon Pardee, Clay Macleod Chapman, Roxanne Benjamin and Shock Till You Drop Managing Editor Sam Zimmerman.

As Ken W. Hanley wrote for Fangoria:

As an entire experience, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE LIVE definitely lived up to the hype, providing a one-of-a-kind stage performance that was as gripping as it was disturbing. By relying on the audience to use their imagination to fill in the visual gaps, the show executed the audio and vocal elements expertly, and the writing went to unexpected places in order to frighten and entertain. And from the incredible crowd response, there seemed to be more than a few TALES converts, and even more crossing their shivering fingers for more live TALES at Stanley in the future.

For those who were unable to attend, fret not; the live Stanley performance will be available in the third season of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE later this year, and you can catch up with previous episodes at their official site here.

Shock Exclusive: Barbara Crampton & Leon Vitali Lead Stanley’s Tales From Beyond the Pale Live


From Samuel Zimmerman at ShockTillYouDrop.com:

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.
