A collection of six short, creepy, pulpy plays narrated by horror host M.T. Grave, who introduces each of the evening's ghoulish, funny delights ...

In Bloody Mary two oversexed teenagers play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse while driving along a deserted highway late at night

In Insect Love a scientist and his lab assistant fall in love ... while the sci-fi classic The Fly plays in movie theatres across the country

In The Ten-minute Play About Rosemary's Baby, a young couple moves into an apartment building with nosy neighbors ... as well as a demonic presence!

In Swamp Gothic, a handsome college student risks man-eating alligators, voodoo and zombies to find his equally handsome missing best friend

In Morning Becomes Olestra, a conniving femme fatale plans her obese husband's murder ... with the help of a vampire

And in Dinner with the Superfriends, two gal pals get together for some reminiscing ... and crime-fighting

Flexible Set, 3 men, 2 women (doubling)

"Who's scarier, the knife-wielding maniac or the trusted boyfriend who summons her? The Satanists next door, or the loving husband who might be secretly plotting with them? The Weird goes for both humor and horror by riffing on classic schlock comic books. But subtler themes of trust and the nature of relationships lurk just below the surface" ~ Creative Loafing

"Winking at everything from Rosemary's Baby to Tales from the Crypt ... this intermission evening of one-acts goes down quick and dirty and gets our vote for best Halloween show" ~ Atlanta Journal-Constitution
