Starting Tonight: Twin Cities Horror Festival!

We don’t produce a lot of horror here at FCP, but we can’t help but get in the mood for some spookiness at this time of year. Company members are involved with three different shows at the Twin Cities Horror Fest, which kicks off tonight and runs through November 5th.

One of our newest members, the Rev. Matthew Kessen, is presenting three unique shows on classic horror monsters in his “Rev. Matt’s Monster Science” series, dubbed Rev. Matt’s Monster Science: the Unholy Trinity. “Informational talks – slash – comedy routines about the monsters we create and the fears they embody; plus, Powerpoint! A different talk each show!” This is a great show that you won’t want to miss, and we can promise that it’ll be educational AND entertaining. Plus, all three shows are different!

Next up, Duck Washington (Caucasian Aggressive Pandas and Other Mulatto Tales) has written and directed Intuition and the Mantis. “Dark forces observe as an unconventional scientist tries to deduce whether she is being influenced by events in her future or if she is able to manipulate the events in her past.” In the lineup of this show, you can catch Matt Allex, Amanda Jaeger, David Tyler Rand-McKay, Cara White, and John Gary Youker lurking onstage.

Finally, Horror Show Hotdog is bringing their short film festival back to the stage for 2017! “We watched hundreds of horror shorts to find the ones that pack more punch into five minutes than most movies do in an hour and a half. We’ll present a wide variety of hand-picked films that will make you laugh, shiver, and even glance over your shoulder on the way to your car.” Matt Allex and Megan Slawson have certainly put together a fantastic lineup for this year’s fest.
