Updated File Artwork and Tagging

I updated the artwork and the tagging of the first episode, The Statement of Randolph Carter, to match that of the second episode, The Temple. So, now they should organize correctly in whatever media player you happen to use.

Short Film – Total Party Kill

Well, here it is – my directorial debut – one of the films that screened last night at the 2013 H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival-LA. It is a tale of dice and monsters… Enjoy! 

An Audio Drama & A Short Film

This weekend is the forth annual H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival-LA (Sept 27-29) taking place at the historic (and beautifully Art Deco) Warner Grand Theatre in downtown San Pedro, CA. I am very excited that Macabre Fantasy Radio Theater has been asked back to the festival. This Friday night we will be performing another classic weird tale in the style of “Old Time Radio”, and one of my favorite of Lovecraft’s works, The TempleSet during WWI our story follows the tragic adventures of the doomed crew of a German submarine as they face madness and death below the sea.

Then, Saturday afternoon, is the World Premiere of a short film that I directed (my first) called Total Party KillIt tells the tale of a group of friends playing a table-top RPG as the world of the game crosses into the reality of the players. Watch the trailer!

If you are able and so inclined please Buy Tickets and join us this weekend! Also, if you can’t attend in person you can purchase a “There In Spirit” pass that will give you access to the LiveStream (watch our “radio” show!) as well as the Short Films! 

 

Upcoming live show and a short film

Hello! 
We’ve got some exciting news about some current projects.

Next month we will be returning to the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival-LA (Sept. 27-28) performing another original adaptation of a classic weird tale in the style of “old radio”. The festival is selling tickets through their Kickstarter as well as “There in Spirit” passes that allow purchasers to view content from the festival (like our performance) remotely. Hopefully some of you will be able to join us either in the theater or from the comfort of your homes for some classic audio drama chills & thrills!

Also, we just finished our first short film project! While the setting of the film is not “old radio” or audio drama related the subject matter is decidedly Lovecraftian. We’ll be posting more on that soon…

Macabre Fantasy’s First Year

Well, it’s been just over a year since our first post. A lot has happened since then. We’ve been busy working on scripts of some of our favorite classics of the “weird” tale as well as enjoying reading some stories that we had, until now, not gotten around to reading but we feel will make for fantastic audio dramas.

More news coming soon about our first LIVE PERFORMANCE!!!
