The horror musical is a strange phenomenon. I’m not sure what it is about horror stories or films that scream “Make me into a musical!”, but it seems to happen often. When it does, there are two distinct types of musical that come from this genre. There are those that take the story and themselves seriously, such as Carrie: The Musical, Jekyll & Hyde, Phantom of the Opera & Sweeney Todd, to name a few. These shows take elements of suspense, gore and dark music to tell their stories. They expect to scare and horrify. Then there is a special breed of musical that takes just about nothing seriously. Perhaps the best example of this is Evil Dead: The Musical, which blissfully fused blatant mockery of the “horror clichés”, stereotypical characters and gallons of blood into one of the most hilarious shows of the past 10 years. Shows like this are meant to to shock and delight rather than scare. When they are done well they make some of the most memorable nights of theatre.
It’s that time, Ghouls and gals! Tickets for Crypticon 2014 are now available!
