If you love horror musicals, get ready to put your dancing shoes on because there’s a new one in town called SLASHED! The Musical. It’s a fun and thrilling love letter to 80’s horror that fans are going to have a blast with.
Official Press Release:
SLASHED! The Musical tells the story of a handful of would-be camp counselors gearing up for the grand re-opening of Camp Freedom (better known to the locals as CAMP DOOM) where, just a decade earlier, Little Peetie Jergins fell into a bonfire while the counselors were too busy drinking, dancing, smoking and screwing to pay attention to his screams. Now Peetie’s unquiet spirit roams the woods, punishing those who engage in the behaviors that lead to his demise. And soon the lake will run red with the blood of his victims. Set in 1983, SLASHED! The Musical, is a love-letter to the not only the summer-camp Slasher genre, but also to the time period. The seven original songs are an ode to 1980’s Top40 radio and the story uses and subverts genre clichés for comedic effect. Seven original songs. Seven Kills. One hell of a fun time! Coming to Hollywood Fringe Fest this June!
SLASHED! The Musical is directed by the master of the modern horror short, Chelsea Stardust (Under the Bed, Marco Polo). The film is also produced by horror veteran Rudy Scalese (Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film, 6 Souls, and dozens of shorts for Crypt TV) and online genre personality and expert Clarke Wolfe (Collider Nightmares, Earbud Theater, The Bloodcast). The book, music, and lyrics are by musical theater veteran (Rent, Buddy The Buddy Holly Story) and genre screenwriter Sean Keller (Argento’s Giallo, Carpenter’s The Ward).
We are super excited for SLASHED! The Musical and will be attending one of the shows on Sunday, June 4th, so stayed for a review. Is anyone else planning on going? Let us know.
