Once again, and just in time for Halloween, The Blood Brothers and Nosedive Productions are presenting an evening of short plays depicting revenge, sadism, savagery and zombies, all with a hint of black comedy. This years offering is collectively called PULP.
Running the gamut in mini-plot from revenge-murder at an all night diner to psycho-killer in the city hiding from the cops, with inept magicians, rhyming zombies and bug infested boys thrown in for good measure, this series of seven shorts hits all sorts of disquieting high notes. Kooky and sometimes unsettling, PULP is an apt title to describe the raw production, as there is plenty of pulp fiction sensibility and pulpy flesh degradation to be had in just over an hour.
Not a show for children, PULP could be the perfect guilty pleasure for adults who love to indulge in the general Halloween spirit, or who, to paraphrase playwright James Comtois, grew up on trashy horror and just cant get enough of it.
