Remember what it's like to see a spooky play in an actual theater? Get your popcorn and beverages ready, and have a seat in our virtual auditorium for a spectacle that Rue Morgue Magazine called "a chillingly intense show." Villainy or H. H. Holmes' Own Story!

Just in time for Halloween weekend, we're bringing you an awesome and macabre stage production from our friend and Stuart Gordon collaborator, John Strysik (you may remember him as a festival guest, co-author of "The Lurker in The Lobby: A Guide to Lovecraftian Cinema" with our own Andrew Migliore, plus he's the director of 1980's The Music of Erich Zann, and writer of episodes of the TV shows Tales From The Darkside and Monsters)! 

This thrillingly macabre stage play is a spooky period costume drama that follows the horrid, but sometimes farcical exploits of America's first serial killer, H. H. Holmes who stalked Chicago during the World's Fair and even built a "Murder Hotel" with secret passages and booby traps for the unwary! 

Streaming from Friday, Oct 30th at 6:30pm Pacific (9:30pm Eastern), until Saturday, Oct 31st at 6:30pm Pacific, PLUS a LIVE Q&A with John Strysik and members of the cast and crew Friday at 8pm Pacific.

Plus guests that include:
