One of the few shows this year at Fringe that plants itself firmly in the horror category, I was definitely looking forward to this one.
The usual suspects of horror make an appearance including flickering lights, mysterious sounds, things that go bump in the night, ominous phone calls… and don’t forget the dead body. There are several moments of tension that play out effectively.
What I didn't like
There were some minor timing issues with a few of the sound effects used, but it was a preview performance and that should be easy to fix.
My overall impression
Fun and short, if you want a little hors d’oeuvre of horror, this show just might satisfy that craving. As a man prepares to put make-up on a body in preparation for a funeral, the story takes a couple of unexpected turns that prove a bit unsettling. It’s quick and manages to build tension and provide a few scares during its short running time.
