Be fun to see a stage rendition of this..... if only I lived closer! So when did St Louis become such a horror hub?

Who said St Louis was a horror hub? It's more of a gooey butter cake-crab rangoon-toasted ravioli-provel cheese hub.

Live theatre in St Louis has definitely gotten more interesting over the last decade or so though. There's a local group called Magic Smoking Monkey that take pride in stage renditions of Ed Wood classics, TV episodes like Love Boat, Twilight Zone and even Speed Racer. This spring they're breaking out with Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park! Here's the link for more info: http://www.stlshakespeare.org/MONKEY/index.html

Dracula,ah,i've always wanted to see it as a play(though i guess Tod Brownings movie comes pretty close to being a stage play,and though this may sound blasphemous,i've always wondered what it would have been like if James Whale had directed and John Carradine had starred,with Colin Clive as Jonathan.)too bad i can't go to st.louis,might as well just go see HALLOWEEN for my non-comics horror-thrill.

Speaking of Halloween, I just noticed the needless Rob Zombie re-make came out. Any reason why they didn't just wait until closer to uh, say--- Halloween!?! Maybe they think it'll disappear from theatres quick enough to be on DVD by Oct. 31st. I do hope this is a good movie though I wasn't too impressed with House of 1000 Corpses or Devil's Rejects. I hate when people rag on something before they've seen it, but eh...
