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 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.
